Once you have taken the huge step of moving into a new country like Canada, you are ready for all kinds of adventures! And is there more exciting adventure than skydiving? Gather all your courage and jump!
There are two skydiving schools near Montreal: Nouvelair and Parachute Montreal. Both offre approximately the same services and different packages. If you are interested, you can make a reservation online or by phone. On D-day, present yourself to the skydiving school with good shoes and courage. At first, you will r3eceive a short training to learn everything about the safety rules. Then you suit up with a skydiving jumpsuit and get right on the plane. It will lead you to approximately 4 000 meters where you will have to jump. When you’re ready and well tied to your instructor, you can jump and enjoy the fall! After one minute, the instructor deploys the parachute and you fly like this for a few minutes before landing on the floor. With Parachute Montreal you can choose to jump from 5 500 meters where you will need an oxygen supplement. You can also ask for photos and videos taken by the team but you will have to pay a little bit more…
If you want to experience the sensation but are afraid of the height, find it too expensive, or want to do it in winter season, another option is available. You can try the free-fall simulator at Skyventure. The sensation will be the same because you will be lifted into the air by a powerful airstream at 175 km per hour. It is much cheaper than real skydiving, approximately 62$ for two flights.
The two skydiving schools are about 45 min away from Montreal by car, but Skyventure is in Laval which is closer. Whatever option you choose, the adrenalin rush is guaranteed!
