About Skydiving Franz Josef Glacier
Nestled between New Zealand’s highest mountains, the Tasman Sea, stunning temperate rainforest, glowing glaciers, mirror lakes and braided river beds, Franz Josef Glacier has been described as one of the most beautiful place on earth. For this reason and many others, the region was included in the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area.
Skydive Franz offers skydiving from 12,000 feet, 15,000 feet and 18,000 feet.
We are fully certified New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority 'Adventure Aviation' operators. And we have a 100% safety record.
Our Tandem Masters are world class, fun, vibrant and pride themselves on their professionalism. Our aircraft is maintained to an incredibly high standard, and our pilots are commercially rated mountain pilots who know the local weather conditions inside-out.
If you are considering skydiving in New Zealand then Skydive Franz is a fantastic option.
We are the only skydiving operation located in and operating from Franz Josef Glacier. We have a booking office right in the middle of town, and our trips depart from there. The airfield is only 5 minutes drive from town, and generally your trip will take around 2 - 3 hours total.
