Taupo has the largest commercialised skydive drop zone & is often referred to as the skydive capital of the world – adrenaline junkies, eat your heart out.
Taupo's drop zones operate the most tandem skydives each year out of anywhere else on the planet. You can jump from either 12,000 ft or 15,000 ft - at either height the views are amazing. When you skydive in Taupo you’ll get incredible views from coast to coast, over the snow-capped mountains of Tongariro National Park and the beautiful Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest lake. Taupo Tandem Skydive and Skydive Taupo both operate from Taupo airport, adjacent to the shores of Lake Taupo.
