I had to reschedule a few times because of weather, but I'm SO GLAD I ended up being able to go. I recommend planning to be in Twizel for a few days or a week to ensure you can still go if your jump is postponed. It was the most exhilarating experience of my life. It was my first skydive, and this was the best place to do it. It's absolutely terrifying, but 100% worth it. The views are spectacular, with the added bonus that if you are a Lord of the Rings fan, you are flying above the Pelennor Fields. The team at Mount Cook Skydive are super supportive, with great energy and professionalism. My tandem expert was Lewis (or Louis?) who was awesome, and Emily at the front desk was super patient during the rescheduling process. I can't thank everyone enough for making my trip to New Zealand epic. 10/5 stars!!

This was a 21st present for my daughter who has travelled and very adventurous. It was perfect. The staff amazing, I seriously could not have given her a better present. Both of my daughters did this and are probably still buzzing. We got held up with a traffic accident for two hours, it was not a problem for them. The even had balloons hung for her as she walked in the door

I book a fly for July, but the weather was bad so we canceled and book again in September. The skydive team was patient and understanding.
After Two month, we stole and it was AMAZING. The people are very friendly and professional. they explain everything and if you are stressed they reassure us.
So for finish, the team is perfect, the fly is fantastic and the landscapes are incroyables. Everything for pass a good time and have memories for ever.

Wow what a great experience! There were 3 of us in our family who jumped. The views from up there were incredible, looking out towards the mountain ranges and the beautiful lakes. The free fall experience was amazing. The instructors were great and the booking process was super easy. We had to reschedule but they made it all work for us. Would highly recommend!

Wow what an amazing fun skydive from 15’000ft above planet earth, free falling for over a minute above the magic and beauty of the incredibly scenic alpine regions of Mt Cook, spectacular lake Pukaki, the quaint little Twizel township, totally worth the experience and a great team to be with to share the wonderful magic of free fall skydiving 👍

On a recent five-week epic trip across New Zealand, my husband and I were determined to try skydiving. We initially attempted it at Franz Joseph Glacier, but due to cloud cover, the jump was cancelled. They recommended we try Skydive Mt Cook, which is arguably the most scenic in the country. We had planned to stay four days in Twizel, so we would be able to book a jump. Our first attempt was cancelled, also due to cloud cover. Understandably, of course. We rescheduled for a couple of days later when the forecast showed nothing but sun. From the moment we entered the building, we were warmly welcomed by the staff. We were led through a briefing, and because my husband and I had our jump cancelled previously, we were taken up first. My tandem partner was Brent and my husband's partner was Nico. Both were very friendly, encouraging, funny, fun, and 100% professional. I was a little nervous, as I'm not the most comfortable with heights, but I felt secure with Brent, who is extremely experienced, with over 18,000 jumps. When we reached altitude,
Brent prompted me and gave clear instructions. There is something unreal about swinging your legs out the open door of a plane while 13,000 feet above the ground. A moment later, I was in freefall. There truly are few words to describe the feeling--exhilarating, thrilling, yet strangely serene, and of course, utterly free. Once under canopy, I cry-laughed from the emotion of the experience. Gliding slowly down to the earth above one of the most spectacular views I've ever seen is something I will never forget. Brent gave clear instructions on how to prepare for landing and it was perfectly smooth. My husband had an equally thrilling jump from 15,000 feet. The video and photos are awesome as well! In a trip full of highlights and unbelievable memories, this was THE highlight.
