Skydiving in the Lake District

Is there anything better than hurling yourself out of a plane from 15,000 feet and experiencing the sheer ecstasy of free fall at speeds close to 120 mph…. probably not, and the good news is you can do it in the Lake District !!

The Lake District is home to one of the UKs premier sky diving facilities, offering tandem skydive experiences and charity skydive days. The facility also offers learn to skydive courses and solo jump (parachute) courses, in addition to being a base for experienced airsports enthusiasts.

With exceptional views of the Lake District, Irish Sea and beyond this might just be the best skydiving location in the UK !

Skydive Northwest is located at Cark Airfield in Flookburgh, approx 20 miles SW from Kendal. A Tandem skydive is priced at £230 (at the time of writing).
