See the spectacular Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers from a whole new level - 16,500ft to be exact! Experience the unparalleled thrill of freefall for 65 seconds before the parachute is deployed and you float smoothly back to ground, surrounded by snow-peaked mountains, lakes and shimmering glaciers.
Elevate your heart rate as you dive off a plane from 16,500ft! After a safety briefing, you will board the aircraft for an exciting flight over the Southern Alps up to altitude. Once you've reached 16,500ft, you'll inch closer to the edge before leaping out of the plane with your instructor, freefalling from the sky at 200km/h for 65 seconds. The parachute will then be launched and you'll float peacefully to the ground for a few minutes. Admire unparalleled views of temperate rainforest, glistening toothy mountains, icy rivers, lakes and of course the dazzling Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers as you descend. It's a truly unique way to witness one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
