Ultimate Queenstown


Book - Skydive Wanaka


Get suited up, strapped to a stranger and step into a plane ready for an experience like no other. 

The flight to altitude is 10-15 minutes, during which you can enjoy uninterrupted views of Wanaka’s world-renowned lakes, mountains and rivers, and on a clear day you can see all the way to Mount Cook.

Move toward the plane’s now-open door, securely harnessed to your highly-qualified tandem skydiving instructor… pause on the edge, then… SENSORY OVERLOAD!

You’re flying through the air at 200kph! You’re not falling – you’re flying and the view is truly INCREDIBLE. Your adrenaline is flowing as your senses try to process the intensity of the experience.

Scream, curse, smile and laugh all the way back to earth!
