However, all these can be equally admired from above, if you skydive from an altitude of 11000 ft/3353 m or 14000 ft /4267 m high. Skydiving instructors will assist you with instructions in the air from the moment you jump from the aircraft until your landing.
The city houses a skydiving school that offers you the chance to feel the excitement and adventure of a free fall sport, in a place ornamented by such a natural beauty, giving you the opportunity to admire scenic views.
Whether you are an amateur or a professional jumper, you will follow an initiation course before your take off.

Your instruction will include how to make 360-degree turns, along with a review of previous body maneuvers.
The necessary equipment is provided by the school, while the dives are guided and assisted by professionals, so leave any fear or hesitation aside and enjoy this unforgettable experience!
