Discover Lake Taupo from the sky on this tandem skydive with free transfer from neighbouring Rotorua.

Choose the altitude and get high on this tandem skydiving experience in Taupo! Offering three different heights to suit your fear factor, experience G-force at up to 200 km/ph on this tandem skydive! Enjoy free transport from your accommodation in Rotorua and discover the ultimate drop zone over iconic lake Taupo – freefalling for 75 seconds!

This activity is run & operated from the airbase in Taupo – offering free transport from anywhere in Rotorua. Providing a complimentary 1-hour return shuttle, the drop zone is situated over Lake Taupo – with neighbouring local landmarks including Huka Falls & Craters of the Moon.

Start your adventure with a free 1-hour transfer from your accommodation in Rotorua – travelling to the airbase located in Taupo. A tandem skydive with three altitudes on offer, choose from 12,000, 15,000 or 18,500ft – providing up to 75 seconds of pure freefall!

Upon reaching the activity base, meet your jumpmaster for this tandem skydive. After a short safety briefing and introduction to the kit, head to the airstrip and fly high over Lake Taupo – climbing to a set altitude based on your booking. Enjoy the scenery as you circle the dropzone and, securely attached to your experienced instructor, take the ultimate leap of faith. From here, you can experience freefall at 200kph– smiling for the camera and stretching your hands out to really feel the G-Force! After a maximum of 75 seconds of flying, your instructor will pull the parachute and you will glide gently over the turquoise waters of Lake Taupo – looking out for its unique rock formations and lagoon-like shoreline, touching down gently at the landing area nearby.
