3-2-1 JUMP! Skydiving in New Zealand 12,000ft high above the mountains!

This post may contain affiliate links, see our disclosure

15 minutes up, 45 seconds down! Watch me jump out of a plane at 12,000 ft above Queenstown, New Zealand with NZONE Skydive Queenstown.  Falling at 200kph! Arial views of one of the South Islands prettiest areas: the Remarkables mountain range, lakes, and snow-capped peaks!

For some reason, the thought of skydiving didn’t scare me at all.  The morning of I was fine, Adam dropped me off and I decided to upgrade my jump from 9,000ft to 12,000ft! Why not?

We took a ten-minute ride outside of Queenstown, where I would be suited up and off in a plane I go.  Once up high in the sky, I realized I had no other way down, and when it was my turn to roll out of the plane….I had no time to be scared!

Next thing I know I was jumping/falling/screaming down 12,000ft! It was awesome, still can’t believe I did it! I would highly recommend it, and if you’re scared of heights you should be fine.  Because like I said you won’t have time to be scared!


Not a bad view if it were to be your last…

Have you ever sky dived? How high? Where at? Would love to hear all your stories!

  1. That view looks incredible! I did my skydive in Taupo and loved it too.
    New Zealand is without doubt the best place for any extreme sport!

  2. I went skydiving in Vegas from around 15,000 feet. Easily the coolest adrenaline thing I have done; even cooler than bungee jumping from a hot air balloon!

  3. Wahoooooo!!!! Hannah, so freakin’ stoked you did it! (Glances at Adam with raised eyebrow)

    I’m so bummed I didn’t get a chance to explore more of Queenstown, those mountains are Mindblowing!!! I bungee jumped there but looks like Skydiving is beautiful in that region.

    Oh, and did you see the girl as you are boarding the train flash the gnarly symbol 🙂

    By the way, I’m shocked they only had one camera on you oldschool like that. Some of the other ones have every jumper with a GoPro on their wrist.

    Either way, cool stuff!

    • I did it! Don’t think we would have gotten Adam out of the plane, that IS if we ever got him in the plan!

      Totally saw that girl!

      No they had a camera man jump with us and we hung onto him for a little. Was a great experience for sure.
