    Wow! There are really spetacular landscapes to appreciate while jumping from a parachute in the world! I particularly loved the view of the Niagara Falls.

  2. I do miss European scenery of Skydive Rotterdam, the Netherlands. jumping right next to one of the biggest ports in the world, with a fantastic view on the River Maas, the North Sea and the city of Rotterdam and Rotterdam Port.

    It’s a unique setting jumping above a major city, altitude from 10.000 ft till 12.000 ft.
    Pictures on request.

  3. You can’t beat skydiving here in Florida, because of the amazing views and the year round mild temperatures. And the Florida skydiving hub of the Zephyrhills area is super close to the Caliente Resort & Spa which is a great place to stay!

  4. I´d add Texel, a small island in the North of The Netherlands.
    You jump on the Northern Sea and can have a view at allt he other five sialdns of the arcipelago. Unforgettable.
