We went skydiving with Skydive Paradise and it was just simply amazing. We were picked up from Queenstown by Alice and drove to Glenorchy for around 45 minutes where the skydive takes place. During the ride, Alice explained the area to us and we also stopped along the way to the most beautiful viewpoint of the lake and surrounding mountains!... More

I've jumped out of a plane 3 times now and this was by far the most spectacular. Skydiving is almost addictive to the adrenalin junkies you find here in Queenstown but the stunning scenary, calm and peaceful setting in Paradise, Glenorchy adds to the whole experience hugely!! definitely a must do!

Was definitely a highlight of our trip to Queenstown. Beautiful scenery and really great people. A clear blue sky day helped as well! Give it a go - you wont regret it.

I would recommend this company to anyone wanting to Skydive in New Zealand, because not only were the staff amazing, but the... More
