Top 6 Skydiving Centers Near Paris Compared in Detail

Do you have a need for adrenaline and fresh air? Whether you are interested in tandem skydiving or initiation skydiving for APF (Accompanied Progression In Fall), in this article you will find the best spots for skydiving that are less than four hours away from Paris (some of them are only two hours away!).


A note for beginners

➡️ Before you jump head first into choosing where to skydive, you need to decide what type of skydive will fit you the best:

  • Tandem skydiving is the most common type. It is done with two people with a monitor-wearer.
  • APF Initiation skydiving is a little less known. This skydive is done independently. Instructors will accompany you, but you will be on your own when it comes to your equipment. This generally requires a full day of theory beforehand.

Please note that it is possible to skydive solo without having done a tandem jump.


⚠️ Let’s also not forget that skydiving is an activity that has risks. There are a few conditions to be met before you can participate:

  • be older than 15
  • weigh less than 90 kilograms
  • be equipped with a medical certificate

Skydiving is also not recommended for people who are subject to heart or inner ear problems.


Now that you have this information in mind, it’s time for an overview of the best spots for skydiving less than four hours away from Paris!
