Climbing Aoraki Mt Cook offers some of the best views of Te Waipounamu, the South Island, but there’s an easier way to get expansive views across the island - a Tandem Skydive from 9,000 feet (2,500 meters). Instead of spending the better part of a week to gain that altitude, head up with a window seat to enjoy the view in your skydiving plane before getting the best view of the South Island that money can buy.
