My Top 10 World’s Best Skydiving Destinations

Top 10 World’s Best SkyDiving Destinations

Some years ago I discovered that I loved the thrill of living dangerously. I started out mountain climbing, which has its merits, but I soon learned that soaring over the mountain’s peak is really where it’s at if you want to earn your stripes! Skydiving in the UK is great if you’re just beginning your skydiving journey, but if you’re ready to take things to the next level then start ticking off this list of the top skydiving destinations in the World.

#1 Everest, Nepal

Ok, so you’ll need to inherit a small fortune to make this dream a reality . . . but I can’t think of a better way to blow my funds than skydiving over the highest peak in the world—the colossal Mt. Everest. There are only four skydiving trips every year, and you’ll need to pay a £700 deposit six months before you leave and then a crazy £10,000 (!!!) three months before you take off. Hands down though, this is the most exhilarating way to fall through the clouds. And I dare say they’ll lay on a bottle of champers for you when you land.

#3 Mauritius

I bet you’d never believe you could so a dive with your 12-year-old brother? Well, you can in Mauritius! Their only age prerequisite is that all children aged under 12 must suit up before leaving the ground! This tiny island is off the south east coast of Africa and will throw you some truly spectacular views as you fall. It is kinda pricey, but I just hope those extra pounds make sure the toddlers are strapped in really well! Eek!

#4 Namibia

This is an immense desert jump. All you see is caramel coloured dunes and endless blue sky for miles around. It is totally devoid of wildlife, cities and greenery. It’s the most unique (and peculiar!) skydiving view you’ll ever see. And falling 10,000 feet from the sky gives you a good 5 minutes to come up with the best desert mirage your mind can conjure.

#5 Le Marche, Italy

Le Marche is one of the best skydiving destinations in Europe. You get a full view of the beach as you fall back to Earth on this dive as it’s just moments from the Adriatic Sea. This place is well known for its friendly and nerve-calming, staff. This could be the ride of your life.

#6 Hawaii

If you’re an eco-warrior like myself, then there’s no better utopia to soar into than Hawaii. Skydiving in Hawaii will allow you to see almost the entire island (including the local marine life, Kaena Point, Pearl Harbour and Diamond Head) on the drop and as an added incentive . . . skydiving operations in Hawaii use energy efficient planes. This can reduce your skydiving carbon footprint by as much as 40%.

#7 Zambia

So how would you like to float over the highest waterfall on Earth? Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. As well as the waterfall, the Zambezi River is full of real life National Geographic scenes, and (if you’re really lucky) you might even see a rainbow.

#8 Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia

Take note — this one is only for experienced sky wranglers. Do you remember this jump from Valery Rozov’s stunt sponsored by Red Bull? If not – here’s a re-cap – the man dove into an actual active volcano! You’ll also pass a smoking mountain fire hole, but I’m afraid I can’t guarantee it will give you wings.

#9 Seville, Spain

This is, without question, absolutely the best you can get in Europe. It’s a massive drop of 15,000 feet for only 205€! Bargain! That is 73 feet for every Euro spent! Or if you’re a bit frightened you could opt for the 10,000 foot drop for 185€ instead. Make sure you jump early in the morning so that you hit the ground in time for the siesta!

#10 Wollongong, Sydney, Australia

What really makes a skydiving experience? Of course, it‘s the view. Falling from the sky in Wollongong, Sydney fills your eyes with both the fabulous Australian coastline and the sight of Sydney itself. As you’re plunging towards the concrete jungle, make sure you take in the dolphins and whales romping around a mile below. Wollongong in Sydney is definitely one of the best skydiving destinations on my list.
