Imagine this if you will – you are thousands of feet up in the air and looking out of the side of the plane, you hit the drop zone and jump out, and Tom Petty suddenly comes to your mind with the lyrics, "Now I'm free, free falling". They have never been more relevant. Sky-diving is one of the most adrenaline pumping things you can participate in, and you couldn't ask for a better view on the way down. This is a list of the best spots in the world that you can fuel your inner adrenaline junkie needs.
Australia - See the Great Barrier Reef with the company Skydive Cairns. Along with seeing the reef under the ocean, try seeing it from the air. You will get to see the reef and the Wet Tropics of Queensland which are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
New Zealand - Queenstown is described as the "Adventure Capital of the World" and the company NZONE is the most reputable diving company there. With over 250,000 jumps under their belt, they are the guaranteed to be your best experience when it comes to falling out of a plane.
U.S.A - If you are looking for a great view of the Manhattan skyline, then Northeast Pennsylvania Skydiving Center is the experience for you. Not only will you be jumping out at 13,500 ft. and getting a gorgeous view of the Pocono mountain clad scenery, you will also be able to see the city as well. It's the best of both worlds.
Switzerland - If you want to see glacial lakes and lush green scenery surrounded by the breathtaking Swiss Alps, then Skydive Lauterbrunnen will have everything you need for a memorable experience. This is one of the few places where you can reach altitude by helicopter; on really clear days you will be able to see the Matterhorn.
Skydiving is for the brave of heart and those who are looking for the ultimate thrill. Jumping out of a plane thousands of feet in the air isn't for everyone, but be assured that it is totally controlled and is an experience that you will never forget or replace with something else.
