We were four people doing the 13000ft jump and we all loved it. The view is fantastic and it felt completely surreal. The instructors are calm and professional, you are really in good hands. The C.E.O, Mark, even helped us jump-start our car afterwards when we discovered that we had accidentally left the headlights on, incredibly nice of him! The... More

You honestly have to just go with it and overcome your fears when it comes to a skydive, and for me, who prior to this would only have jumped out of a plane if it was on fire, this was the best place to do it! We looked at places in Australia and New Zealand to done, and this won... More

I honestly cannot express how much i loved this. It was one of the best experiences of my life. The instructors are lovely and make you feel so comfortable. I did the 16,500. I would go for the highest if you end up there. The views are honestlt so stunning.

Very experienced, well drilled staff gave us confidence to jump out of the plane - pretty good considering my husband isn't good with heights! We did the 13,500 feet jump and even just for the amazing views over the glacier and the feeling of being above the level of the clouds. We were both nervous before our jump but afterwards... More

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.
