As the days get shorter and the air gets cooler, you may be wondering – is it possible to go skydiving in the winter season? It’s not only possible, but it is also the most epic time to go skydiving – especially here in the Swiss Alps!
If you’re like most people, you are worried about the cold. So in this article, we would like to explain why winter skydiving over the Alps is a wonderful experience and why you won’t be cold!
Winter skydiving in Interlaken – what’s so great about it?
Interlaken, Switzerland is the definition of a winter wonderland! This traditional resort town is situated right on the edge of the Swiss Alps, towered by high mountain peaks and nestled between two deep blue glacial lakes.
As the air temperature drops, everything starts to freeze, and the vast, wild landscape is slowly covered by a thick blanket of snow. The coolness of the air also provides incredible clarity, you’ll be able to see for kilometres.
The Alps are looking their absolute best at this time of year, and being up at 4,000m above Interlaken gives you a breathtaking view of hundreds of snowy peaks. The pure beauty of this winter wonderland makes your skydive experience extremely special, you really can’t beat that view.
