Show us someone who doesn’t want to go skydiving and we’ll show you a poor excuse of a person who spends their evenings watching Netflix with a warm cup of cocoa and who’d come second in a fight with a three-legged kitten.
This adrenaline-pumping parachuting activity is so mind-blowing it’s practically spiritual and – once you’ve summoned up the guts to do it – the highly-experienced professionals at Barcelona Skydiving will fly you 12,500 feet into the air, strap you on the front of an instructor and launch you into the ether for an amazing tandem skydive.
After a minute of free fall, where you’ll plummet to the earth at a g-force inducing 140km/h, your instructor will pass out and you’ll both die… just kidding! Your skydiving instructor will pull the ripcord and suddenly the heart-pounding whoosh will give way to a breathtaking descent by parachute over one of the most beautiful bays in the Costa Brava.
The experience takes place a little outside Barcelona and costs 250 euros per person. Email for availability. If you’re really keen (ie. you’ve watched Point Break one too many times and developed a disturbing crush on Keanu Reeves) you can sign up for multiple sky dives, or even take an Introduction to Freefall or Accelerated Freefall course.
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE but please check our entertainment section for alternatives.
