8 Best Skydiving Destinations in Europe

An article dedicated to my adventurous freak friends. A tour of the 8 best skydiving destinations in Europe for that perfect thrilling and adrenaline-rush experience. Floating in the air high above in the sky with the mind and heart in control, that's what completes you as a skydiver. Europe has a lot to offer when it comes to skydiving, soaring like a bird and feeling the essence of flying like a bird. Many of these dropzones or skydiving destinations are located in close proximity to the prominent cities of Europe. You can combine your sightseeing trip with the adventurous ride and create a memorable experience. Approximately there are 550 dropzones in Europe and selecting the 8 is tough. Yet I tried to narrow them down to 8 for the ever-lasting and fun-filled skydiving, brushing across the air and the clouds.

Algarve, Portugal

Algarve in Portugal is a prominent tourist place, encapsulated by the wonderful beaches, delectable seafood and renowned historic sites.
