Where is Skydive Franz?

Friday, October 13, 2017


Just in case you weren't sure where we're located, he's a quick explanation.

Our office is located on the main street of the Franz Josef Glacier township and our dropzone is at the airport, five minutes drive away. Franz Josef Glacier is the biggest town in the Glacier region of the West Coast of the South Island and is at the base of New Zealand’s biggest mountains (including the highest Aoraki/Mt Cook). It’s only about 15 kilometres (9miles) from the town/mountains to the ocean and the airport is in between. The mountains and glaciers are highlighted in white in this photo. This location, with the mountains, glaciers and ocean so close, makes it the best place in the world to skydive.
