Skydiving over Lake Wanaka with 'Skydive Lake Wanaka' was one of the best experinces of my life. I spent a whirlwind three weeks touring the north and south islands of beautiful New Zealand and although I had many great experiences, skydiving was by far the best. I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie anyway but this was fantastic. We... More
