Skydiving - Skydive Paradise Glenorchy Queenstown
Tandem Skydive Glenorchy
Glenorchy, at the tip of Lake Wakatipu, is known as "The Gateway to Paradise", with stunning scenery wherever you look and what better way to take it all in than whilst Skydiving in Paradise? With views so breathtakingly dramatic they were used during the filming of the Lord of the Rings this will be the perfect backdrop for your experience of a lifetime.
Conquer your fears and take the plunge from 15,000ft or 12,000ft and enjoy the ultimate adrenaline rush! With up to 65 seconds of adrenaline fuelled freefall at speeds of 200kmph terminal velocity, there's simply no feeling like it. Once the parachute has been deployed you'll have chance to take in the imposing mountains and creeping glaciers with jaw dropping views of Mt Aspiring and the Fiordland National Park whilst your jumpmaster safely navigates you back to the ground.
With over thirty years of experience, highly qualified tandem instructors and the most advanced and reliable technology you will be in safe hands during your skydive in Paradise.
Your trip departs from Central Queenstown where you will take the 45 minute drive to Glenorchy with a brief stop at Bennetts Bluff. Here you will gain your first glimpse of the Alpine Village of Glenorchy and have the opportunity to snap some amazing photographs.
