If you’re up for an adventure and aren’t afraid of heights, you can’t do much better than jumping out of a plane and freefalling 10,000+ feet back to Earth. With a parachute & skydiving equipment attached, of course!

If your routine beach days and summer swims are getting old, it’s worth looking into the many thrill-seeking activities out there in Vancouver and beyond.

So with that in mind, here are some stunning places to go skydiving in BC for the ultimate adrenaline rush.

Whether you’re a pro or going tandem for your first skydive, there is no better backdrop than the gorgeous greenery and mountains in Whistler. We know taking that initial leap of faith doesn’t always come easy – but the adrenaline payoff is so worth it, especially with views from 10,000 feet in the air! 2023 is the year we cross this off the bucket list.

And what better place to start than the most affordable option on this list?

Where: 1850 Airport Road, Pemberton
Cost: $95 to $160+

Skydive Okanagan 

For a skydiving experience that’s more inland but no less scenic, check out Skydive Okanagan. Within seconds of jumping, skydivers will reach speeds of over 120 miles per hour in freefall – so prepare for the ultimate rush! In addition to tandem diving, visitors can book solo and advanced sessions at their Skydiving School.

Where: 6626 Tronson Road, Vernon
Cost: $359 to $379 per person
