Full description
Choose to skydive from 9,000ft, 12,000ft or 15,000ft above New Zealand's awe-inspiring alpine scenery and record it all with a custom photo and video package. Start your adventure from Queenstown with a scenic drive along the shores of Lake Wakatipu to Glenorchy.

Enjoy a small, personalized group with plenty of time to get to know each other, share the excitement, and enjoy the buzz at the drop zone. A friendly and professional team will prepare you for your exhilarating skydive experience. Once you're geared up, jump in the plane for the 15 to 20-minute scenic flight to altitude. At altitude, you'll be nudged towards the edge of the plane by your tandem master before leaping out. After 25 to 60-seconds of freefall, take in the spectacular scenery during your 5-minute flight under canopy as you float back down to the drop zone.

The dropzone is located a few minutes south of the Glenorchy township, nestled at the edges of Fiordland National Park and Mt Aspiring National Park. A place huge with cultural and historical importance, Glenorchy is the gateway to the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area – the place of Greenstone.
