I did the 16,500 ft jump. It was brilliant. Great adrenaline rush. Lovely scenes in the plane above the glacier. You don't go above the glacier on the 13,000ft jump. Mauro was great to jump with. Good video and pics.

This was my first time skydiving but the team here was so organized and safety orientated that I felt in good hands from start to finish. The video (for an additional fee) was well done, my tandem skydiver / instructor Lee was an absolute professional but also a real fun guy which was a great combination. A must do for... More
