In collaboration with Skydive EHF, Icelandic Parachute Association (IPA) & Discover True North Travel Services and GoBeepBeep we welcome you to come explore Iceland with us, so mark your calendars July 14th - 30th, 2024.
We want to bring you around Iceland and see all it’s beauty and majesty and skydive into some places that have never been jumped before. Waterfalls, volcanic craters, icebergs and glaciers are just some of the sky-sights for your enjoyment, some that have never been touched by skydivers before. But what makes us unique and will set this event apart from others is that not only do we want you to see the skies of Iceland, we want you to experience all that Iceland and Icelandic traditions have to offer you on land and water as well.
We are offering an event that interweaves skydiving & sightseeing. A truly immersive experience in Iceland.
Excited to be back in Iceland for 2024!
We are excited to bring you back this year and operate out of Akureyri & Hella Iceland.
While exploring the skies we will have a great, whirlwind adventure exploring the country and skydiving out of exciting places. This will be an adventure and will challenge your skydiving skills. Come prepared to land in places and conditions that might be some of the most unique ever (and of course, the most breathtaking).
Bringing in our fully configured jump planes and jump pilots, who can even take us up to high altitudes!
When we are not jumping we will can settle into lovely hotels, local drinks and local adventures.
All solo skydive participants who jump this event will be given membership in the Icelandic Skydiving Association.
All jumps will be out of a Super Caravan, fully loaded it will have 20 people per load. We anticipate the loads going up to between 10,500 - 13,500 ft. weather permitting. This is the only true "skydiving" aircraft turban aircraft in Iceland. This will be the fastest turban in Iceland and it is jump ready with a door & railing. It even gives us the option for some high altitude if you are feeling even adventurous.
We look to go to some pretty interesting sights and some more challenging landing areas and typically higher wind jumps. With that being said the following will be the minimum requirements necessary to join us as a jumper on this adventure.
Family and friends are welcome! On this trip, we want to make sure our jumpers are taken care of, but also their spouses, friends and any non-jumpers that want to come along. We will have limited space (8 -10 slots) for non-jumpers and we will have a daily sightseeing type itinerary for you that aligns with where the jumpers are headed. More to come as we line up excursions and adventures to keep everyone busy.
In addition, to all the sightseeing, non-jumpers will have 1 tandem jump, with outside video, included in their package (if they want it) at any one of the locations throughout the event. If there is someplace in particular you want to jump out, we will work to make it happen. In this instance, your friends or partner can jump with you as well.

The lovers of Icelandic scenery will savor the scenes from Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Situated in the south of the Icelandic highlands, it is the country’s fourth-largest ice cap. Underneath its peak of almost 1500 meters, there rests a notorious and explosive volcano, Katla
The mighty Langjökull, the ‘Long Glacier’, is the second-largest glacier in Iceland, at 935 square kilometres (361 square miles). For jeep and snowmobile trips, Langjökull is the most popular glacier in Iceland, and skiing and hiking here is possible as well.
Jump the Arctic Circle! One of the major attractions of Grímsey is the puffin that makes its nest in the cliffs in April and goes back to sea in August. Another one is the Arctic Circle, with many visitors aiming to step over the circle. In 2017 a new landmark was revealed that signifies where the Arctic Circle goes through the island. It's a giant ball and is called "Orbus et Globus. " Weighing almost 7 tons, it is moved each year to align to the Arctic Circle.
