April 7, 2021 / Destinations/Travel

When it comes to skydiving, you want to go to the best places in the world. Not only because of the sites to see but because there are reputable skydiving services that will have your safety and wallet in mind.

It’s not enough to go to just any skydiving service; you want people who will be professional and care about your needs. So without further ado, here are seven of the best skydiving locations in the world.

Mount Everest in Nepal

If you love mountain scenery, then you’re going to love skydiving at Mount Everest. Instead of climbing all the way up one of the tallest mountains in the world, why not view it on the way down from an epic jump? Your skydiving trip will take you to a height of 23,000 feet above the ground, and you’ll land in one of two places: the Ama Dablam Base Camp or the Syangboche Airport. Take care with wither spot; they’re both tens of thousands of miles above sea level.

Fox Glacier in New Zealand

On New Zealand’s South Island, there is the remote Westland Tai Poutini National Park that contains a glacier that is 13 kilometers long. It’s called the Fox Glacier, and it’s definitely one of the sites you shouldn’t skip in your skydiving journey. The scenic beauty is unparalleled that you won’t find anything like it anywhere else.

North Wollongong Beach in Australia

You’ll have to travel one hour south of Sydney in order to get to the drop-off zone for one of the best skydiving destinations in Australia. The waters along the beach are full of whales and dolphins that are absolutely magnificent to see on your way down from your jump. The services in this area provide both solo and tandem jumps, as well as offering landings along the waters of the beach.

Victoria Falls in Zambia

One of the tallest falls in the world, it’s no wonder it’s a popular destination for skydivers. The river that runs along the falls actually borders two African countries, Zimbabwe and Zambia. You’ll be able to feel the spray of the falls and witness the rainbows it creates from your jump.

Rio de Janeiro

This is one of the most vibrant cities in the world, and has a vast connection to beaches, parties, and music. It is also a great area to try out some skydiving and see all of its colourful glory from so high up.


The beautiful blue waters of Mauritius are a sight to behold from above, so you definitely don’t want to skip this one. The bird’s eye view of the Indian Ocean makes this an excellent honeymoon location as well.

Cape Town in South Africa

South African is rife with beauty to behold,  so why not witness it all from above? The fantastic scenery is definitely one to see from both ground level and while you’re skydiving.

No matter where you may end up, it’s a good idea to add these wonderful destinations to your list if skydiving is really your thing. And if you’re a first-timer and thinking about it, what better way to get into the thrill and experiencing these locations for yourself?
