Tandem Skydive 9,000ft from Franz Josef

Climbing Aoraki Mt Cook offers some of the best views of Te Waipounamu, the South Island, but there’s an easier way to get expansive views across the island - a Tandem Skydive from 9,000 feet (2,500 meters). Instead of spending the better part of a week to gain that altitude, head up with a window seat to enjoy the view in your skydiving plane before getting the best view of the South Island that money can buy.
