To start with you get up to a 10-minute incredible scenic flight amongst the Swiss Alps, with spectacular views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau, followed by the thrill of freefall with the comfort of an experienced instructor.
You will experience an adrenalin rush like never before as you freefall at 200 KPH (120MPH) followed by an amazing 6 minutes canopy ride (similar to Paragliding), giving you time to take in all the excitement before you land softly back on Earth.
Be sure to purchase the video and/or photos so you can relive the amazing experience and not to mention, brag to your friends and family.
*NOTE: We require even numbers (groups of 2) for the helicopter skydive to go ahead. Please go ahead and book your jump even if you are just one person, and we’ll let you know if we find another person to join you. If you can not find the suitable date, please contact us by e-mail and we will organize your tandem jump.

Take the memory with you and show your jumping experience to all your friends and family.
You choose and book an option on the day of the jump.
Your instructor has a camera attached to their hand. The angle is up close and personal. Having the camera on your instructor also means some of your canopy flight will be filmed.
You’ve been briefed, you’re geared up, the time is now… let’s get to the helicopter!
Once everyone’s on board, the helicopter will take off and climb steadily to jump altitude. Enjoy the scenic flight!
Take a moment to look out the window. The views of the Swiss Alps are incredible. Over the next ~10 mins you’ll be able to see close up views of Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau and on a good day even the Matterhorn. The final approach is at 13,000ft above the Lauterbrunnen valley.
The instructor will connect themselves to you, and go through the jump plan again. At this point, you’ll be fully prepared and ready to skydive!
When the helicopter is on “jump run”, the instructor will open the door and check the “spot”. Together you will move to the door and put your feet outside on the “skid” … this is it!!
Head back, hands holding your harness, feet on the skid… heart racing… the moment you’ve been waiting for!
Your instructor will tap you on the shoulder to let you know you can open your arms wide! No words will be able to describe the sensation of falling 200kmh… You’ll be in complete freefall for roughly 45!!
If you ordered a photo or video package, don’t forget to give the camera a wave and huge smiles!

The instructor will deploy the parachute and you’ll slow down quickly. You’ll feel some pressure in the harness, which is totally normal, and before you know it, you’ll be under a big parachute cruising above the valley!
You’ll be under the parachute for around 5-7 mins and can really take in the views! What a feeling, so many emotions will be rushing through you at this point… soak it up!
Your instructor will steer the canopy towards the landing area and let you know when it’s time to lift your legs up. This will help you slide in nice and soft on the landing area in Lauterbrunnen. Congrats, you did it!!

We can take up to 6 tandems from the airplane where we can only take 2 tandems from a helicopter.
The views from both locations are both beautiful. You are closer to the mountains when you are jumping from the helicopter but you see less of the mountain range.
When you jump from the airplane you see more of the Swiss Alps mountain range, the lakes and on very clear days you can see the Matterhorn.
