What better way to survey the best bits of New Zealand’s scenery than from a bird’s-eye view up to 16,500 feet above the ground?
Why choose between vistas of golden beaches or snow-capped mountain peaks when in Nelson you can gaze in wonder at both simultaneously.
In what is possibly New Zealand’s most scenic skydive, the central Motueka dropzone is the only one in the country where skydivers are treated to mesmerising views of both the North and South Islands.
Throw in some gleaming rivers, a patchwork quilt of vineyards and orchards, warm sunshine, fluffy clouds and curvaceous coastline stretching to the horizon and you’ve got views that you’ll struggle to beat in a lifetime.
Gliding back down to earth you can pick out the Southern Alps to the south; Mount Taranaki to the north along with Nelson’s handful of national parks – Kahurangi, Nelson Lakes and the picture-perfect Abel Tasman.
