  • Experience New Zealand from 13,000 feet in the air

    2010-04-12

    For most travelers heading to New Zealand, adventure is in the cards. Over the years, the diminutive island nation has attracted a range of sport enthusiasts from mountain climbers and hikers to white water rafters and cyclists. Yet those tourists seeking a truly unique experience while in the "Land of the Long White Cloud" might consider booking a flight for a skydiving adventure.

    One of the perks of parachuting in New Zealand is that it allows travelers the chance to take in much of the country's scenic beauty all at once.

    There may be no better jump destination than the city of Taupo in the central portion of the northern island. The city is home to both the largest freshwater lake in the country and a number of stoic volcanoes that wreath the region in snowcapped beauty.

    Mountain lovers might also enjoy diving and sightseeing above the southern island town of Wanaka, a gateway to the Mount Aspiring National Park.  This area is home to several grand natural sights including the aptly named Deep Canyon, a number of peaceful mountains and a series of lakes and rivers that dot the surrounding landscape.
