Skydiving in Taupo

The adrenaline rush of them all!

In Taupo there is the opportunity to feel the ultimate kick! With your skydiving instructor, you will board the plane and take off to 9/12/15/18,000 feet (from about 3 km).

The doors open and it’s time for the jump! The feeling is indescribable and cannot be compared to anything else you can try in life!

In Taupo we jump over Mount Ruapehu and Mount Ngauruhoe. Have you seen Lord Of The Rings? Then you probably know them – in the movie they are called Mt. Doom.

With 40 seconds of free fall and a speed of 200 km/h, you’ll experience a rush like never before. Then the parachute deploys and you can enjoy the insanely beautiful ride down to land from there!

You won’t regret it. We promise!
