Although skydiving is obviously the best part of this adventure, the plane ride up to 12,000 ft is nothing short of extraordinary. Going skydiving in Taupo is extra special, as you get incredible views of Lake Taupo, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Ngauruhoe – also known as Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings!

After reaching the altitude, the plane doors will open. You’ll be getting ready for the big jump, with your tandem master right behind you. There is an indescribable thrill in the moments between the plane doors opening and you jumping off it. Your heart starts pounding so fast you can almost hear it. You will see how small yet beautiful the world looks from 12,000 ft. Then finally, you jump!

Free falling for almost 40 seconds, you’ll experience an adrenaline rush like never before. Flying through the NZ’s skies, reaching speeds up to 200 km/hr is going to be an experience that is going to be with you for the rest of your life.

After the free fall, the parachute comes out and you’ll begin floating back to earth, soaking in the pristine beauty of Lake Taupo. The parachute ride with your tandem master is going to be an adventure in itself.
