Our skydive dropzone is located only 40 minutes from New Zealand’s most famous resort town of Queenstown at the edge of a small alpine village known as Glenorchy “Gateway to Paradise”. This is Middle Earth, the setting of The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings movies. Skydiving with Skydive Paradise offers you not only the most breathtaking scenery in the world, we also promise you the most personalised tandem skydiving experience in New Zealand.

The people running the show out here are phenomenal and make you feel valuable, even though they jump all year round. We felt very safe too. The views were spectacular and you get away from the hype of Queenstown. I would highly recommend Skydive Paradise to anyone thinking of skydiving in New Zealand!

Completely awesome! This was our second jump and we felt completely safe, and in the best hands here. We felt some of the other skydive companies operating out of Queenstown were a bit too duuuuuude for our tastes, and these guys sounded more genuine. Turned out they were brilliant – just the right mix of reassuring and fun! Skymaster (if... More

Did this skydive with my daughter and it was the most amazing experience of my life so far. From the drive up to Glenorchy to the landing on the grassy airfield, the whole day was exciting and fun. The Paradise team were great and had us laughing and screaming in equal quantities. Came away with a great video and pics.... More

My girlfriend and I heard a lot of excellent buzz about Skydive Paradise when we were looking into her third jump and my first while in Queenstown. First off, the picturesque tableau for the jump can't be beat. On the way up in the plane, you look all the way out over the indomitable mountain ranges (the misty mountains for... More
