In collaboration with Skydive EHF, Icelandic Parachute Association (IPA) & Discover True North Travel Services we welcome you to come explore Iceland with us, so mark your calendars July 7th - 14th, 2023.
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 2023!
Join us as we explore the skies of the Northen & Eastern parts of Iceland.
We are excited to bring you back this year and operate out of Akureyri & Egilsstadir 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 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 (6-8 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 that came with you can jump with you as well.
LOCATED IN ONE OF ICELAND’S most remote northern villages, the Arctic Henge is a colossal piece of stone construction that evokes neolithic monuments throughout the world.
Started in 1996, the Arctic Henge project is a monument not only to the country’s Nordic roots, but also to some of the neo-pagan beliefs that have arisen in certain areas. The piece was inspired directly from the Eddic poem Völuspá (Prophecy of the Seeress), taking from it the concept of 72 dwarves who represent the seasons in the world of the poem, among other symbolic queues. In the Arctic Henge, 72 small blocks, each inscribed with a specific dwarven name will eventually circle four larger stone monuments, which in turn will surround a central balanced column of massive basalt blocks.
Although sometimes referred to as one canyon, Hafrahvammagljúfur, this large canyon is actually two canyons, Hafrahvammagljúfur and Dimmugljúfur canyon. And even though the attraction is the spectacular natural wonder, the history of the canyon, both the geological history as well as its place in modern Icelandic history is also fascinating. The impressive canyon stretches about seven to eight kilometers from the northern part of Vatajökull icecap towards the valley Jökuldalur (Glacier Valley). With its 200 meter high walls and only about hundred to hundred and fifty meters width they seem narrow and intimidating as everything is dark and steep.
