One of the most exciting things you can do is go skydiving – the thrill, the adrenaline rush, the giddiness of it all – it’s a different feeling altogether. If you love adventure and are always game to try out new things, you must go skydiving if you haven’t already. If you have, then you know what we’re talking about. The initial fear can be daunting, but once you are air dropped into absolute nothingness, that feeling of freedom is like nothing you’ve ever felt before.
Skydiving is something that you can’t do everywhere, especially if you’re a beginner. Therefore, travelling to the perfect destination to indulge in this adventure is the best option. We know the world is simply itching to get out of their isolation quarters (read – homes) right now and while virtual travel has many payoffs for travellers, one thing it can’t do justice to is adventure travel. So, if you want to go on this thrilling adventure and take the plunge, then here are the destinations that would be the perfect skydiving spots. Take a look!
- Fox Glacier, New Zealand
Considered to be one of the finest skydiving sites in the world, Fox Glacier is spectacular and offers a fabulous view. Just imagine being air dropped in the middle of an 8-mile-long glacier – feel the breeze, marvel at the view of the wild coastline along the Tasman sea and the snowy peaks of the Southern Alps.
- Mount Everest, Nepal
Which adventure lover doesn’t want to scale the Mount Everest? Even among the most experienced skydivers, the tallest peak in the world is also THE best place to go skydiving. Being above or in line with Everest is one hell of a trepidation, but the thrill would be out of this world! Jumping from a height of 23,000 ft above the ground, this venture is no joke. You’ll land on either of the two places – Ama Dablam Base Camp which is 15,000 ft above sea level or Syangboche Airport which is 12,340 ft above sea level.
- Interlaken, Switzerland
Another most popular skydiving spot is none other than Interlaken in Switzerland – no surprises here. From the turquoise waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz to the snow-capped Swiss Alps, this tandem skydive from 14,000 feet offers views like none other. With views of Italy, France, Germany and Austria stretching out past the snow-capped peaks of Jungfrau and the Matterhorn in the Alps, Interlaken skydiving is a thrill for beginners and experienced divers, too.
- Palm Jumeirah, Dubai
Dubai has just recently become popular as a skydiving spot, but is gradually making a name for itself among the famous ones. Dubai hosts one of the biggest annual international skydive championships and unlike other names on the list, it is a city jump. Here, you get to soar over the Palm Jumeirah, the artificial archipelago made of reclaimed land jutting out from the city’s urban marina, where you’ll get a mind-blowing view of the Persian Gulf and the whole of Dubai.
- Snohomish, Washington
United States is not one of the most visited countries in the world for nothing. It not only offers great sightseeing opportunities, but also provides excellent skydiving spots. One of the best and the most popular ones is Snohomish in Washington. It is scenic, it is thrilling, and you will love this place irrespective of whether you’re a beginner or an experienced skydiver.
