Skydiving in Taupo

For the adrenaline junkies, doing a Taupo skydive should be at the top of their bucket list. If you haven’t already heard, Taupo is the world’s home of skydiving - our drop zones operate the most tandem skydives each year out of anywhere on the planet! Taupo is also the cheapest place in New Zealand to throw yourself from a plane (and survive), and with such incredible views you would be crazy not to skydive in Taupo!

Coast to coast views above the Central Plateau, the snow-capped volcanoes of the Tongariro National Park and beautiful Lake Taupo all create some stunning freefall views.

There are two superb companies - Skydive Taupo and Taupo Tandem Skydiving - to choose from. Both Skydive Taupo and Taupo Tandem Skydiving offer an amazing once in a lifetime skydiving experience to suit all budgets. You can jump from either 12,000 ft or 15,000 ft and choose from a huge selection of camera styles to capture your skydive.

Don’t forget that Taupo skydiving has a strict 100kg weight limit (220lbs). Both drop zones will operate sunrise to sunset, weather permitting, so fingers crossed for blue skies!
