What to Expect
Travel reference:

Experience the thrill of NZ's highest skydive with this tandem skydive experience at Franz Josef!


Nestled between New Zealand's highest mountains, the Tasman Sea, stunning temperate rainforest, glowing glaciers, mirror lakes and braided river beds, Franz Josef Glacier has been described as one of the most beautiful place on earth. Join an exclusive club of skydivers who have been lucky enough to enjoy these amazing views from above, freefalling for up to 85 seconds.



Tandem skydiving is the fastest, easiest and safest way for an inexperienced skydiver to enjoy skydiving at speeds of up to 200kph/120mph. The system includes a harness and parachute system for both the passenger and the instructor to share, so you can simply enjoy the thrill of the experience knowing your instructor has everything under control.



You can choose to descend from 13,000 feet, 16,500 feet or go all-out and choose the 20,000 feet option. You're in safe hands with all the latest, greatest and most state-of-the-art equipment as well as highly-qualified skydive masters.

Reviews
FAQs ASK
  • Q:Hi, I'm about 110kgs, can I join this activity?
    A:Hi there, thanks for your question. The maximum weight allowed for this activity is 120 kg, but that depends on the fitness of the participant and assessment from the Tandem Master. The harnesses used are designed specifically for comfort and allow more/easier mobility for heavier people than any other type. There is a maximum weight limit on the equipment, and as long as this is not exceeded, there is no problem. If you have any other questions, please send us an email at service@kootrip.com. Kind regards, Cynthia

  • Q:Can I bring my own camera to film the whole course of my skydiving?
    A:Hi there, thanks for your question. Unfortunately you cannot bring along your personal camera, GoPro, cell phone, or any other photography equipment on your jump due to safety and regulatory issues. Your operator has professionally trained freefall photographers and offers a variety of camera options available should you wish to record your jump. Thanks for your understanding. If you have any other questions, please send us an email at service@kootrip.com. Kind regards, Cynthia
