THE TOP 8 PLACES TO SKYDIVE AROUND THE WORLD

8. Santa Barbara, California

Santa Barbara is the location of North America’s highest tandem skydive, at 18,000 ft! With a drop-zone located only a few miles away from the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara Skydive offers up breath-taking panoramic views of the California coast line.

7. Denarau Island, Fiji

The tropical waters below you are so clear you can see the fish and coral within. From a height of 14,000 ft you will enjoy awe-inspiring views as you float back down to paradise.

 6. Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai is quickly becoming one of the best skydiving destinations in the world, and we have personally been lucky enough to experience it for ourselves. The view of the man-made floating palm below is something you can not experience anywhere else in the world. After your dive we suggest spending the night at a desert safari!

 5. Fox Glacier, New Zealand

New Zealand is considered the adventure capital of the world and we can see why. The scenery is stunning, with spectacular lakes, glaciers and mountains to skydive over. During our time in Queenstown we decided to try out paragliding from Coronet Peak, which is not as scary as skydiving, but also an amazing experience for those wanting an adrenaline rush without the jumping out of a plane part.

 4. Interlaken, Switzerland

Skydiving in the Swiss Alps is a unique way to enjoy an extraordinary view of snowcapped mountains and glaciers. This is also one of the more affordable places to skydive and one that is definitely on our bucket list! Not only does Interlaken offer skydiving, but you can also try out hang-gliding … Switzerland, here we come.

 2. Mount Everest, Nepal

For those looking for the ultimate skydiving experience, what could provide a bigger thrill than soaring over the highest mountain peak in the world, 29,500 ft to be exact? At a crazy prize of $25,000 and a 6 month wait time, skydiving over Mt. Everest is an experience of a lifetime for any skydive junkie.

 1. Outerspace

Okay, maybe our number one is a little extreme, but we think it is the one of the most amazing fetes ever accomplished. Felix Baumgartner jumped 120,000 ft above the earth! If you want to check out the footage check out this video, its incredible!
