Skydiving Experiences Around the World

Our bold, beautiful planet is peppered with person-made and natural wonders. Some of those awe-inspiring wonders are easy to appreciate from the ground: the great pyramids, the aurora borealis, and Komodo Island to name a few. To fully appreciate others, however, a bird’s eye view is required.

That’s where we come in. When it comes to choosing a location for skydiving, there is no shortage of options. There are nearly 250 USPA-affiliated drop zones in the United States alone. The best places to skydive worldwide are a matter of some debate amongst the sport’s most devoted aficionados, but below you’ll find some true standouts.

Africa

If you thought Africa’s thrills and excitement were limited to safari adventures, think again.  Victoria Falls, one the world’s seven natural wonders, is found on the continent of Africa straddling the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. And you can skydive over it, affording you a view that will be seared into your memory for as long as you live. Victoria Falls Adventures in Livingstone (yes, named for that Dr. Livingstone), Zambia can make that happen for you for around $300. Well worth every dime.

Australia

Skydiving in Cairns in North Queensland, Australia offers spectacular views of one of the seven wonders of the natural world: the Great Barrier Reef. In addition to unparalleled views of the world’s largest coral reef, you can also experience incredible vistas featuring the area’s lush, tropical rainforests. The highest skydive on the continent, Cairns is the place to be if you want the best skydiving facility in Australia.

Europe

Can you imagine stepping out of helicopter to soar over the snow-capped mountains and stunning glacial lakes of the Swiss Alps? Well, you don’t have to imagine it. You can actually do it. Skydive Interlaken operates year round, and has no age restrictions on jumpers; the only requirement is the ability to safely utilize the harness.

South America

Though it has many rivals, most agree that the best place to skydive in South America is found in the country of Brazil. Specifically, its capital: the thriving metropolis and home of the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rio de Janeiro. Some facilities even arrange beach and night jumps. Head to Jacarepagua Airport in southwestern Rio’s Barra region to sign up for a day you’ll never forget.

North America

In North America, Skydive Jersey is the destination of choice for tandem skydiving in NJ. Particularly in the autumn, the views are breathtaking. City skylines, lush fields, gorgeous, winding rivers –you can see it all from 13,500 feet in the air. And you will love it. Give us a call at 866-669-3020 to book your jump today!
