Check out the tours from Everything New Zealand and book your adventure today.

No trip to Queenstown is complete without a skydive. No matter which skydiving trip you choose, you will witness unforgettable views and an exhilarating feeling that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Unique Skydiving Experiences in Queenstown

On the Skydive Southern Alps trip, you will have the pleasure of leaping out over the town of Glenorchy, less than an hour from Queenstown. The scenery is breathtaking, as iconic Lake Wakatipu glistens beneath you as you soar back to earth.

You can choose the altitude from which you step out of the plane, depending on your level of comfort with the skydiving experience. Pick from a jump height of 9,000ft, 12,000ft or 15,000ft. On the way down, you will hit speeds of up to 200kph as the crisp air rushes past your smiling face.

After the initial freefall, your jumpmaster will slow your parachute down for you to admire the one-of-a-kind views. Marvel at the mountains and glaciers that surround you, including Mt Aspiring and the Fiordland National Park.

Alternatively, you can stay closer to town on the Tandem Skydive with Nzone in Queenstown. On this trip, you will be picked up from central Queenstown, where you will be taken to a drop zone that’s just 15 minutes away. As with the other skydive trip, you have the flexibility to choose your jump altitude, with a maximum of 15,000ft.

Once you exit the plane, you will spend a minute in an adrenaline-fueled freefall as you plunge to earth at rapid speeds. Your qualified jumpmaster will take the lead, deploying the parachute when necessary so that you can absorb the stunning views around you.

Bundle Your Skydive to Save and See More

If you have more time in Queenstown, consider booking several activities together to make the most of your holiday. Everything New Zealand offers a number of bundled packages so that you can pair your skydiving experience with other fast-paced activities such as bungy jumping, jet boating and white-water rafting.

For example, if you love the thrill of heights, check out the Skydive and Bungy Combo. This tour includes the skydive Queenstown with Nzone as well as New Zealand’s highest bungy jump with AJ Hackett, a pioneering bungy jump company.

On this trip, you will start the day in central Queenstown, where you will be picked up and taken to a nearby drop zone for your skydive. After you’ve completed this gravity-defying experience, it’s time to once again head up into the skies for your bungy jump.

One of the top activities in Queenstown, the Nevis Bungy Jump takes place 134m above the mighty Nevis River. Try to enjoy the picturesque scenery on your way down - but if it all moves too quickly, you can always pick up a DVD or photo of your experience afterwards.

If you’d prefer to spend time on the water, opt for one of our skydive and jet boat or rafting combos. The Queenstown Skydive & Shotover Jet Combo, for instance, allows you to experience the majesty of New Zealand from both the air and the water. With this package, you will participate in the top-rated Nzone skydive before heading out on a jet boat excursion.

Your jet boat voyage will take place on the Shotover River, which is well-known for its legendary canyon. But this isn’t your typical boat ride; your captain will perform twists and turns as you careen down the river at high rates of speed. Similarly, the Skydive and Shotover Raft Combo includes the Nzone skydive in addition to a half-day white-water rafting trip down the river, where you will tackle rapids and cruise through a dark tunnel on your voyage.

Whether you’re looking for a classic skydive experience or a dive that’s bundled with other heart-stopping activities, Everything New Zealand can help you find the tour that’s right for you.
