Full description
Feel on top of the world with an epic 18,500-foot skydive. This skydive is the highest altitude in Taupo, and a must-do if you want to skydive in New Zealand. From up to 18,500 feet (that's nearly 20,000 feet above sea level), you will receive approximately 75 seconds of free fall.

Your skydive will begin with a scenic plane ride, where you’ll see incredible views of Lake Taupo, Mount Ruapehu and on a clear sunny day, you’ll be able to see from coast-to-coast of the Central North Island. Once you’ve reached altitude, the doors will open, you’ll sit on the edge of the plane with your tandem master seated behind you. As you plunge from the plane into the fresh air, you’ll experience the best adrenaline rush of your life.

Reaching speeds of up to 200 kilometers per hour, the thrill of the free fall is something you will never forget. After an insane 75 seconds of free fall, you will then float back to earth with a relaxing parachute ride with your tandem master, arriving safe and sound back at the drop zone.
