More information

Skydive Franz is one of only nine skydiving companies to make the Red Bull list of Most Insane Places to Skydive in the World, stating that if you’re going to skydive you might as well have a jaw-dropping view in the background.

We have New Zealand’s highest mountain Aoraki/Mount Cook with Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers immediately on the right as well as the wide blue ocean on the left with mountains, glaciers, lakes, and rivers below.

Multiple skydive heights are available including New Zealand’s highest 20,000ft.

We are the only skydiving operation in the region’s largest town - Franz Josef Glacier.

Our booking office is on the main street and we’ll transport you to our dropzone in the region’s largest airport which is only five minutes' drive from the office.
