There are not many experiences you can enjoy that would make your blood boil and fill you with adrenaline-like skydiving. Fortunately for adrenaline junkies and thrill-seekers, there are so many places to go skydiving around the world. However, in this article, we will focus just on the very best you could experience right now. You can treat them like your personal bucket list for the very best skydiving you have access to.
Santa Barbara – California
Are you interested in the highest tandem skydive possible in North America? Look no further! Santa Barbara offers you the possibility to jump from 18,000 feet. The drop zone is close to the Pacific Ocean, and the skydive offers some incredible, panoramic, truly breathtaking views of the coast of California.
Denarau Island – Fiji
When it comes to Fiji, you do not instantly think about adrenaline. You think about romantic getaways and pristine beaches. But, you can also see those incredible beaches and islands from the height of an incredible 14,000 feet. In Denarau Island, you can enjoy a unique experience because of the unique views that are possible during a skydiving session taking you from the heavens straight to paradise.
Dubai – United Arab Emirates
Dubai can be an adventure for solo travelers and entire families because of the different cultural experience present there. In fact, the area is quickly developing and turning into a huge tourist hotspot. With this in mind, it should be no surprise to see that skydiving is also covered and is, as you would expect, world-class level. Everything that you see during your jump is man-made, and we recommend you go skydiving in the morning to then go on a desert safari during the night. This would be a day that would be hard to top.
Fox Glacier – New Zealand
People that travel a lot will tell you that New Zealand is the country to visit when you want adventure, and it is very easy to understand why. We are talking about simply stunning scenery covering spectacular mountains, glaciers, and lakes. And you can skydive right over them. Simply head over to Coronet Peak for some paragliding, but if you want to the full experience, you want to experience skydiving in Fox Glacier.
Interlaken – Switzerland
The Swiss Alps just had to be on the list of the best places to go skydiving, right? These snowcapped mountains are incredible from the ground so you can only imagine the view from the top. We should add that skydiving in Interlaken is also very affordable. Then, when you are done with skydiving, you can experience other adventures, like hang-gliding.
Mount Everest – Nepal
Experienced skydiving highlight Mount Everest as the perfect destination for the best skydive ever. It is very easy to understand why since we are talking about the highest mountain in the entire world, with a height of 29,500 feet. The problem is that it is very difficult and expensive to actually experience it. You will need to pay around $25,000 for the jump and the current wait time is a staggering six months. Even so, if you are a skydiving junkie, you should at least consider it.
Victoria Falls – South Africa
This may not be the highest or the most adrenaline-filled skydiving experience possible, but it is quite unique. You would get the opportunity to go skydiving over the most beautiful and largest waterfall in the world. Just picture getting that view from the skies.
Last but not least, this is something that is very difficult to even think about, but it might soon become a viable opportunity. Out of all the things that men did, the fact that Felix Baumgartner successfully jumped from a height of 120,000 feet is the most impressive. Just look on YouTube to see some video footage, and you will get goosebumps. Just think about what he felt.
