I want to go sky diving during my RTW trip. I'm going to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, SE Asia and China. I've hear the best place to go sky diving is in NZ, but I'm not sure where exactly. Any ideas?

Also, does anyone knoe roughly how much it costs?

in NZ the best spot to go sky diving is Taupo, the views are amazing and as far as I know you also don't get it any cheaper. The skydive will probably cost you around $220, expect to pay more for video/photos. I definitely think it was worth the money .

I would totally agree with Steff on this one!

Taupo is definately the best and cheapest location to do a skydive - like most people, I did mine here too. There are a couple of different companies that operate. I went with the blue and white one that had a limo pickup. Do a search and you'll find it.

12,000ft is approx $220
15,000ft is approx $315

And yeah if you want photo's and/or dvd it will cost you more. I would recommend the DVD's, I bought one and it is very professional and you can choose the music!
