Benedict had been in the Glenorchy area filming the new Hobbit Trilogy and said the Paradise scenery had blown him away – there was no other place that could match it.
Skydive Paradise scenery is unique - it's a great way to experience the mountains
The main thing that sets Skydive Paradise apart from other New Zealand tandem skydive dropzone’s is its location, which is at the Head of Lake Wakatipu and near New Zealand's adventure capital – Queenstown.
From 15,000 feet, tandem skydivers can really appreciate the glaciers, lakes and sea of mountains which form the South Islands famous divide - the west coast isn’t far away at all. Other local landmarks like the Humboldt Mountains, Mt Earnslaw and the Dart River form a stunning back drop as the parachute canopy is deployed and the floating sensation of freefall comes to an end. Everything seems still and quiet as you realise you are floating under a parachute canopy surrounded by amazing mountain views as you fly down to earth and your landing.
