Skydiving is the ultimate adrenaline rush – free falling out of a plane from up to 15,000 feet!

And if you’re looking to tick a tandem skydive off of your bucket list whilst travelling in New Zealand then skydiving in Taupo is the most budget friendly place to face your fears.

They’ll even pick you up in the Skydive Taupo limo to take you to the drop zone – so you’ll start the day in style!

Choose from either 12,000 feet or 15,000 feet (seriously though, go big or go home!) as you calm down your pre jump nerves you’ll enjoy stunning views across Lake Taupo and the gorgeous New Zealand landscape.

Safely attached to your experienced and qualified tandem skydive instructor you simply have to kick back and enjoy the ride with the team from Skydive Taupo.

Feel the ultimate rush as you free fall for up to 60 seconds at speeds over 200kmph – then when your chute opens glide back to solid ground with more amazing views along the way.

Want to be able to prove you jumped and share it on your social media or send it to your mum? No worries, you can add on photo and video packs to either jump option for the ultimate profile picture!
