Experience an unforgettable challenge with this Tandem skydive in Northamptonshire. Your qualified instructor will take you through a pre-jump briefing, you'll get fully kitted out in a jumpsuit, tandem harness, headgear and goggles then it's time to board the plane.
There's plenty of time for the nerves to build on the 20 minute journey to optimum altitude, but before you know it, you'll be strapped to your tandem partner and ready to jump. After an exhilarating free-fall from 7000ft, your instructor will deploy the parachute so you can enjoy the scenery as you slowly float back down to earth.
A great gift idea or a well deserved treat, this Tandem skydive experience voucher is valid for 10 months for 1 person.
