Spain
 
Empuriabrava –
http://www.skydiveempuriabrava.com/
1 ½  hours North of  Barcelona and relatively easy to combine climbing and skydiving on the same trip. Excellent facilities, Go Karting and a cheap bunkhouse on site. Open all year but often windy in the winter. Lots of bars, restaurants and strip joints walking distance from the dropzone! Good stag do venue!
 
Seville –
http://www.skydivespain.com/index.htm
Further south and often warmer than EB this is a very popular winter venue. The dropzone is 20-30 minutes drive from Serville so your’ll need a car. Not much going on in the evenings so a good option is to get accommodation in the city and drive to the dropzone each day, (there are local options if you can find them).
 
France
 
Gap – Tallard –
http://skydivegap.online.fr/
An excellent location for climbing/jumping trip with Ceuse 20 minute drive from the dropzone. Less stable weather in the winter, but fun jumping around snowy mountains
 
USA
 
Florida – Skydive City – Z hills –
http://www.skydivecity.com/
Popular with a small scene at the dropzone.
 
Florida – Deland –
http://www.skydivecity.com/
A bigger operation than Zepher hills, with good facilities
 
California – LA – Perris –
http://www.skydiveperris.com/
  Very popular with excellent facilities, a bunkhouse on site and one of the only drop zones in the world with a wind tunnel. These are BRILLIANT for learning new skills and really fun too. Quite far out from town, so not much going on in the evening. This is where Patrick Swayze trained for the film ‘Point Break’ so plenty of banks near by to raid if you need some extra dollar! “Adios Amigo”
 
California – San Fran – Lodi –
http://www.parachutecenter.com/
 On the road from San Fran to Yosemite national park, so another great option for climbing sky diving trip. One of the cheapest, good dropzones in the world. Highly recommended if you’re on a budget
