Our Other Jumps


Nestled between New Zealand’s highest mountains, the Tasman Sea, stunning temperate rainforest, glowing glaciers, mirror lakes and braided river beds, Franz Josef & Fox Glaciers have been described as some of the most beautiful places on earth.

It’s not all about the iconic scenery though, Skydive Franz Josef & Fox Glacier is New Zealand’s premier skydive company specialising in safety and fun. Although we’re a large company we only take small groups at each time slot so we can spend time with you and ensure you get an encouraging, friendly experience.

We’re one of only a few government safety approved skydive operators and are dedicated to the highest level of health and safety practices.

One of the 9 Most Insane Places to Skydive in the World

"It was our first jump and skydive Franz team reassured us with their professionalism and friendliness. Everything from the pick up to the jump radiates enthusiasm from these bunch of people. Coupled with the gorgeous views that this jump can offer, an A plus experience in every way! I will definitely do it again and it will be with skydive franz"

"My first time and absolutely loved it! I was naturally nervous of jumping out of a perfectly good plane however Harvey and Henry were so awesome at keeping me calm and once your out of the plane it is a blast! Had so much fun free falling but goes by too quick and once the parachute opens you can take a couple minutes and check out the view. It is incredible, all the guys look so badass and get to do it all day long!"

– Rachel Eady

"First time skydiving and I couldn't have chosen a better place to do it. View was just amazing in all directions and the guys we were attached to even gave us a little tour by pointing out the mountains. Very professional and friendly bunch, all of them, and glad that they are still able to make us feel excited after jumping out of planes for many years. Thanks fellas! Would definitely come back!"

"what a scenery and what an experience to jump 19000ft, so amazing that i've done it twice within two days :) special thanks to julie, igor & cody (you're doing such a great job, hope to see you again) and of course to henry and sancho - it was great to have a swiss backup and chatting with you in my native language :) i hope jumping with you again, don't want to jump lower than 19000ft now :D"
