29 de August de 2023

Are you one of those who needs a little action when you visit a destination? Are you always looking for an activity that will raise your heart rate during your vacation? Do you need strong emotions to de-stress? You are in the right place! There are many activities for adrenaline lovers on the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees and here are a few suggestions:


Skydiving on the Costa Brava is an exciting and popular activity among tourists and locals. Famous for its stunning beaches and natural landscapes, the Costa Brava is the ideal place to skydive, and Skydive Empuriabrava is the paradise of skydivers.

At Skydive Empuriabrava they offer many options to fly with highly trained and experienced instructors who guarantee the safety of the participants, like the tandem jumps, which is a safe and popular way to experience the thrill of skydiving without prior experience.


Wind tunnel:

A wind tunnel is a device that simulates the sensation of free fall by creating a controlled upward flow of air. These tunnels are often used to train skydivers and paragliders as they provide a safe and controlled way to practice flying skills without having to jump out of a plane or off a mountain. In Empuriabrava you will find the Túnel del Vent where you can feel like a real skydiver and experience the feeling of flying safely, always accompanied by your instructor.
