Skydiving

Skydiving

Dangle your legs off the edge of a plane at 15,000ft, say your prayers...and fall. Skydiving is up there with the highest-adrenaline, craziest, scariest things you can do on holiday – and the most amazing. Strapped to a skilled instructor or (less commonly) a static line, experience the words-fail-me thrill of hurtling through the sky, freefalling for nearly a minute at speeds of up to 120 miles an hour, before the blissful sensation as your parachute opens, the world turns the right way up again, and you glide down to the ground in a leisurely fashion, appreciating the gorgeous landscape beneath you and the glory of what you've just achieved. Yes, skydiving will have your heart pounding, your palms sweating and your brain so far into overdrive that it jams – but you'll never have known a thrill like it.
