There is far too much fun to be had in this world to waste time stuck in a boring routine. So because budget airlines, the Internet, and mobile technology now give us access to nearly every corner of the globe, there is simply no excuse today for not getting out and seeing what the planet has to offer. Skydiving is known to be one of the dangerous sports of the world although I say it’s not. If you wish to skydive alone, there are training programs available in different skydiving zones but there are also tourist diving centers where no training is required and a guide dives with you. Once you’ve done it, you’re going to want to do it again and again because the feeling that you get when you’re in the air without any support is the best feeling.
Compiled below is a list of top best and beautiful places to skydive.
1) INTERLAKEN, SWITZERLAND.
While the rich come here for the accommodating banks, thrill-seekers head to Switzerland to invest in adventure. After deciding whether to jump from a helicopter or airplane, divers zip down through the clouds into the crisp cathedral of the Alps. With glaciers, stunning lakes, and craggy mountain peaks stretching off to the horizon in all directions, few views can match those you’ll see 15,000 feet above the deck in Interlaken. With a long history as a hub for adventure sports, Interlaken continues to rank for many divers as one of the most scenic drop zones in Europe. With views of Italy, France, Germany and Austria stretching out past the snow-capped peaks of Jungfrau and the Matterhorn in the Alps, Interlaken skydiving is a thrill for beginners and experienced divers, too.
2) FOX GLACIER, NEWZEALAND.
Not only are Kiwis some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not only is their country one of the most insanely beautiful places on Earth. And not only does this island paradise offer some of the best travel experiences to be had anywhere. But New Zealand is also a top destination for extreme sports. Jumping into the landscape around this stunning forest-flanked river of ice at Fox Glacier is an experience that simply can’t be matched. Fox Glacier is a consistent favourite, an 8-mile-long glacier located in the remote Westland Tai Poutini National Park on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. As you free fall, knees in the breeze, marvel at the view of the wild coastline along the Tasman Sea and the snowy rugged peaks of the Southern Alps.
3) MOUNTEVEREST, NEPAL.
Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the whole world. it is located in Nepal/China,Asia. It has immense height of 8,848 meters and in feet 29,029.

Not only will you be astounded by the vistas you see as you descend through the most mesmerizing mountain range on the planet, but the journey to the jump site and back is sure to be an adventure you’ll never forget.
After you’ve tackled the Namib Desert, take a trip out to the nearby island nation of Mauritius, where you can freefall down into one of the most biodiverse environs in the world. Beaches, sugar plantations, dense jungle, and green mountainsides offer unique views you won’t soon forget. And if you’ve got them, bring the kids! Mauritius is one of the only places on Earth where children as young as 10 can share in the adventure. This little island, off the southeast coast of Africa, will throw some dynamite views into your face as you fall. It’s a bit pricey, though, at $390 for 10,000 feet or $450 for 15,000 feet.
5) NAMIB DESERT, NAMIBIA.
If the Alps and Himalayas aren’t quite your speed, perhaps you’ll want to turn up the heat by heading out to the stunning Namib Desert on the southwest coast of Africa. With shadow-shifting sand dunes rolling straight to the edge of the sea and stretching inland as far as the eye can see, dropping into this gorgeously desolate landscape is an experience you won’t want to miss. This vast desert jump, replete with caramel colored dunes and endless blue sky-and devoid of wildlife, cities and greenery-is the most unique skydiving view you’re going to get. A tandem 10,000 foot jump will run you a mere $270 USD. Falling 10K feet from the sky means you have about 5 minutes to come up with the best desert mirage your tousled brain can imagine. The empty, beautiful and vast desert makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. Patterns being made by the air of the sand look amazing from the sky.
6) LEMARCHE, ITALY.

Hawaii is a mecca for death-defying adrenaline junkies. Every big swell, they flock here to test their skills against some of the heaviest and most infamous waves on the planet. But while the surfers are chasing tube time and frothing over throaty barrels, another breed of daredevils is chasing thrills 15,000 feet above the sea.

8) JUMEIRA, DUBAI.
Jumping from the sky and seeing the palm tree of Dubai is probably the best sight ever. The island Jumeira is so beautiful and a skydive to that place is a must. To turn up the heat even higher, there is no place like Dubai. As you enter the airspace above Jumeirah, you’ll get an eyeful of some of the most impressive architectural accomplishments in modern times: towering skyscrapers, man-made island complexes, and a stunning metropolis rising from one of the most inhospitable desert landscapes on the planet.Dubai has been catching up, namely by hosting one of the biggest annual international skydive championships, a competition sponsored by The Emirates Aerosport Federation (EAF) and Skydive Dubai.
If diving over a lava-filled volcano is a little too hot to handle, maybe soaring above Victoria falls the highest waterfall on Earth is more up your alley. Not only is this waterfall one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Zambezi River is full of real-life National Geographic scenes, and if you’re lucky, you’ll even see a rainbow. Skydiving above it at the height of 6,000 ft is breathtaking and awesome. The sight of the falls from the sky is more beautiful than from the land.
10) Kamchatka, Russia
this one’s for experienced sky wranglers only. You may remember this jump from Valery Rozov’s Red Bull sponsored stunt, but if not, the man dove into a freaking active volcano.
Talk about getting high! This is the best you can get in Europe—a whopping drop of 15,000 feet for the bargain price of 205€. That’s 73 feet for every Euro you spend! Jump early in the morning and hit the ground in time for siesta.
12) NORTH WOLLONGONG BEACH, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
The feeling of seeing the world from a bird’s perspective is thrilling, and even more so when that view includes the shoreline of Sydney, Australia, with whales and dolphins frolicking in the deep blue waters. Offering both tandem and solo jumps, the dive centers in this area let you land on North Wollongong Beach. What really makes or breaks a skydiving experience (aside from a faulty parachute) is the view. Falling from a plane in Wollongong, Sydney loads your eyes with both the beautiful Australian coastline and a view of Sydney. As you’re plummeting toward the concrete jungle, be sure to take in the whales and dolphins flapping around a mile below.
13) SNOHOMISH, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES
