Looking to book a skydive from Queenstown? This Glenorchy tandem skydive adventure is like no other. Choose between 9,000ft, 12,000ft or 15,000ft skydive - all with impressive aerial views of mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers in Glenorchy. FREE return transfers are available from Queenstown to Glenorchy where you will begin your skydive experience. Enjoy the scenic photo opportunities as you make your way to the drop zone. Once you are up in the plane, enjoy a scenic 15 minute flight over the mountains to reach elevations. Once the plane door opens, your exhilarating skydive adventure begins with an unforgettable free fall from 25 seconds to 60 seconds (depending on which skydive height you select). Reach speeds of up to 200 kmph as you fly through the skies. After your exciting free fall, the canopy will open giving you time to enjoy a 5-7 minute flight over the stunning national parks of Glenorchy.

Photo and videos packages are available so you can relive the experience all over again. Skydivers should allow 4 hours for the entire experience with transfers from Queenstown or self-drive to the drop zone.
