Queenstown is considered by many sportsmen as the capital of extreme sports and adventure activities. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand.

The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate can be characterized as oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.

Extreme sport lovers can enjoy skydiving here in Queenstown. Jump with a parachute from a plane at 15000 ft/4572 m and make a free-fall at 200 kph/124.27 mph for 60 sec before the parachute opens.

Enjoy the breathtaking alpine view, the lakes and the magnificent wild forests! Note: Put on warm clothes (multiple layers are better than a single jacket) and closed-toe footwear. For safety reasons you cannot use your personal camera.
