Skydive Interlaken’s Environmental Responsibility

The environment is important to us, and we want to do as much as we can to reduce our impact on global warming.

Read further to learn about the ways we are trying to reduce our impact.

1.Off-setting our CO₂ emissions

Since January 2020 we started carbon off-setting every single skydive with a donation of CHF 6.40 to a company called myclimate. Myclimate supports many climate protection projects around the world.

Projects that we are helping to fund are projects of education, sustainability and effective protection of the environment, both local and globally.

Although our customers also have the option to make a donation upon booking, Skydive Interlaken will cover the full payment of the carbon fee associated with the whole jump.

2.Electric Van

In 2022 we purchased an electric van. This van will be used for everything – from picking up customers to driving to the helicopter port thereby reducing our carbon impact further.

3.Solar powered building

Our building is equipped with solar panels, therefore most of the time our head quarters are powered by the sun!

A testimonial from Christian (owner of Skydive Interlaken)

Our social commitment

I grew up in the former glacier village of Grindelwald. I say former because unfortunately, due to rising temperatures, it is not possible to see the upper and lower Grindelwald Glacier from the village anymore. Global warming is a reality, and here in the Swiss Alps, the effects are blatantly obvious.

Switzerland’s clean air, mountains, glaciers, lakes and forests draw people in from all over the world. Tourism is a big part of Switzerland’s economy, so we must think about the future and do all that we can to protect and preserve the environment.

The world is affected by climate change, and therefore everyone should be contributing to reducing/offsetting greenhouse gases. So, in hopes of lessening our carbon footprint, we have taken the opportunity to work with “myclimate”, and offset our emissions with climate protection measures. From 2020, every Skydive Interlaken helicopter flight will be offset, at no extra cost to our guests.

As we make this contribution, we hope to lead the way and inspire other businesses in the industry to follow our example.

Skydive Interlaken believes in quality over quantity. This motto accompanies us in all of our actions, and being a small business means that we have the space to make this priority. We strive to give our employees the best possible working conditions so that their passion for skydiving and customer service can shine through. As soon as each guest walks into Skydive Interlaken, they can immediately feel the friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

So if you ever want to go skydiving, come to Skydive Interlaken. We will show you the beauty of Switzerland while giving you a bit of adventure at the same time.

We are a passionate, professional team, have the highest safety standards in the world and act responsibly in all aspects.

At Skydive Interlaken we take pride in having a warm, welcoming atmosphere while giving you that life-changing experience you’re searching for!

Helicopter skydiving is rare, most skydiving centres use an aeroplane to jump out of. The helicopter is the only aircraft that can navigate through valleys, over glaciers, and up to the summits of high mountains. This means you’ll be getting and experience like no other - getting up close and personal with the Swiss Alps before jumping over the most picturesque landscape.

  • How long will I be in freefall?

    The body size will influence the freefall speed, the smaller the slower, the bigger the faster, in general it is around 45sec.

    The gentle parachute ride takes about 5 to 8 minutes before we land as briefed.

    Once you get under canopy it becomes very quiet and you can talk normally to your instructor as you glide back to the landing area.

    Generally speaking, you can talk, but since freefall speeds reach up to 120mph, the wind passing by makes it difficult to hear.
