After a brief explanation from one of our skilled and enthusiastic diving instructors, we all entered the plane. I still remember my first jump and no matter how many times someone tries to put into words how exhilarating it is to fly through the air, high above the world below, nothing quite gives it justice.

Free falling for 30 seconds at 200km/hr. is absolutely elating! On the tandem jump, your instructor will pull the parachute cord and ensure you return to land in the exact condition you left it in. If you have always dreamt of jumping out of the plane all by yourself and opening your chute unassisted then complete one of our two-week courses and you will be doing just that in no time. Not to mention that you will be learning and jumping in one of the most scenic areas, Texel.

Texel is an island located in North Holland, The Netherlands. It is a holiday hotspot, offering everything to make it a wonderful vacation destination all year round. The wildlife is quite exceptional here as one third of the island is covered with protected reservations. The landscape consists of dunes, wetlands, a leafy forest, quaint towns and sea. This creates a spectacular patchwork of shapes and colours from 300 km above ground.

The region is filled with roaming sheep, so woollen finished goods are a local speciality. And like most of The Netherlands, we are very proud of our artisans, who are skilled in the craft of making cheese and beer. Texel Brewery is a great way to spend an afternoon on the island. You will learn all about the history and techniques of the brewery that uses all local ingredients. The yeast, which really gives the beer its personality, is actually patented.

I also recommend that you spend sometime at Strandpavilijoen Paal 17. Texel is known for its beach pavilions that offer amazing food, drinks and an exceptional view of the sea. The majority of the terraces are heated, so you can enjoy sometime outdoors regardless of the season.

If nature is your thing, I suggest visiting De Slufter. De Slufter is a wetland that formed on the island from a flood in the 19th Century. This resulted in a unique ecosystem that is definitely worth checking out.

A beautiful hike from the beginning of the dunes to the North Sea is always a good idea. De Denner is a leafy manmade forest between the villages of De Hoon and De Koog offering many different hiking and cycling opportunities.

If an active nightlife is what you are after then De Koon is the place to be. This quaint village located near the beach has many spots for delicious cuisine and is the home for events and live music, especially in the summer season.

If you are looking for a unique skydiving experience, in a friendly and beautiful atmosphere then Texel Island should most definitely be on your list. We are open rain or shine, all year long, and can’t wait to get you up in the sky for this once in a lifetime experience!
