Located a stunning 45min drive from Queenstown, Skydive Southern Alps has small personalised groups and awesome staff. You will be skydiving over Lord of the Rings locations, a World Heritage area and Fiordland National Park, with views of Mitre Peak in Milford Sound, Mt Aspiring, Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables.

This is an experience of a lifetime. The scenery is breath taking – Mother Nature has perfected the vista with surrounding mountains, picturesque glaciers, lakes and rivers.

You can choose to skydive from 9,000ft, 12,000ft or 15,000ft above New Zealand’s awe-inspiring alpine scenery.
