Climbing Everest not for you? Why don’t you take the jump instead?! Tick off the highest peak in the world by taking a unique skydive from a dizzying height. At 29,500 ft with the landing sites at Syangboche Airport (12340ft) and Ama Dablam Base Camp (15,000ft), this is the highest commercial aerial adventure in the world. Photo by Everest Skydive.
Go tandem skydiving in New Zealand and jump from as high as 16,500 feet (5,029 meters) — the highest elevation available on the North Island! You’ll freefall for 75 seconds before your tandem instructor pulls the ripcord. Alternatively, opt for a skydive package from 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) or go from 9,000 feet (2,743 meters). Once you’ve caught your breath, soak up the stunning coastal views of rainforests and beaches from above.
