Lovers of all that is extreme are always aiming to add another badge of courage to their adventurous agendas. Skydivers specifically are seeking the highest, most beautiful and most memorable places to fly through the air and breathe in the surroundings. From the world’s best skies to the world’s best views, the four locales below are must-jumps.



It is truly a challenge to top a view of the Hawaiian Islands from 35,000 feet, especially when you get to jump from an energy-efficient plane. Stretch your adventuresome attitude with a surfing lesson, as well.



Float from the stratosphere to the land of pasta and pizza for only $135. To top it off, Italian skydiving staff members are known to be some of the friendliest people and most calming influences in the skydiving world.


New Zealand

Adventure junkies have been frequenting the home of the Kiwis for years to experience the epitome of outdoor risk-taking. Skydiving is no exception, and New Zealand’s history as an adventure capital ensures a safe journey from plane to Earth.


Interlaken, Switzerland

There aren’t many sights more beautiful than when you are gracing the skies above the Swiss Alps and floating to the charming countryside below. Once you land, treat yourself to some delectable chocolate, and if your energy has not been exhausted, hit the slopes.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
