Experience the thrill of freefalling from 18,500 feet above Lake Taupo on this New Zealand tandem skydiving adventure.

After jumping from the plane with a tandem master, enjoy 75 exhilarating seconds of freefall followed by unbeatable views of both coasts and the volcanoes of Tongariro National Park as you glide back to earth by parachute.

The free fall! Wow! Everything was very well organised. I had 100% trust in David and felt very calm. I would recomend this to anyone. The views were incredible. And the video footage is something I will watch over & over and share with friends.

Such a rush eh! And from 18,500ft... you can't get much more of a buzz than that! Hope you enjoy watching your video over and over again! You never repeat the first jump so its great to have the evidence... and even better to brag to your mates about ;-) Thanks for a great review. Hopefully see you again one day! #BlueSkies
