Skydiving is similar to flying. Skydiving gives you the feeling of being a superhero soaring through the sky, ready to kick some supervillain butt. When you’re flying up in the plane, the reality of your decision becomes very clear. It’s both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. You’re psyching yourself up for adventure by looking it in the eyes. When the door opens, a burst of chilly air floods the plane, causing goosebumps to appear on your skin. Such a wonderful adventure should be experienced at least once in your life.
Here are some best places you can look for if you are heading for a perfect Skydive.
Palm Jumeirah, Dubai
Dubai, a relative newcomer among the world’s best drop zones, has been catching up, staging one of the largest annual international skydive championships, sponsored by The Emirates Aerosport Federation (EAF) and Skydive Dubai. Dubai is a city jump, unlike the other drop zones on this list. You’ll fly above the Palm Jumeirah, an artificial archipelago constructed of reclaimed land that juts out from Dubai’s urban marina, with a breathtaking view of the Persian Gulf and the entire city.
1.Over the Swiss Alps in Interlaken, Switzerland
Interlaken, the world’s most remarkable skydive site, is a great place to test your limits. This tandem skydiving from 14,000 feet gives vistas like no other, from the turquoise waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz to the snow-capped Swiss Alps. Before the parachute is eventually deployed, you can fly over the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau peaks at incredible speeds.
2.Fox Glacier, New Zealand
New Zealand, a macca for extreme sports and possibly the best country in the world for skydiving, perhaps the most extreme of all, has a plethora of breathtakingly stunning drop zones. Fox Glacier, an 8-mile-long glacier located in the isolated Westland Tai Poutini National Park on New Zealand’s South Island, is a perennial favourite. Admire the vista of the untamed coastline along the Tasman Sea and the snowy jagged peaks of the Southern Alps as you free fall, knees in the breeze.
3.Eco-friendly Skydive in Hawaii
The thrill of skydiving in Hawaii is not for the faint of heart. You can choose from elevations ranging from 8,000 to 22,000 feet. It’s worth keeping an eye out for the variety of perspectives that a hop here provides. You’ll see Hawaii’s various islands, rainforests, mountains, beaches, and other natural wonders. Transcend the skies and then jump to capture uninterrupted aerial views of the entire island.
Wondering what makes this dive environmentally friendly? Hawaii skydiving companies utilise energy-efficient planes to help you lower your carbon footprint by up to 40%.
4.North Wollongong Beach, Australia
Nothing can prepare you for the physical joyride of this jump, no matter how much your senses have been tickled in Sydney. From 15,000 feet above sea level, ride the salty breeze cutting towards the magnificent New South Wales coastline. The only beach jump in the Greater Sydney area, the trip from the sky onto Wollongong’s North Beach is unrivalled. Float away in the clouds. Allow butterflies to flutter. This skydiving will light a fire in your soul that will never go out!
