It’s not every day that you strap yourself to a beautiful stranger and leap from a perfectly good aircraft! Your incredible scenic flight to altitude captures 360 degree views of NZ’s highest mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers. Freefall from up to 15 000 feet, at 200kph and then soar under parachute above snow-capped peaks before landing safely back at the drop zone. Capture your impressive freefall smile on camera and break the news to your mother in style!

View up to six lakes and the rugged Southern Alps beyond to Mount Cook….Experience New Zealand’s most spectacular skydive!
