Skydiving in Montréal

Canada’s only skydiving simulator lets you stretch your wings inside a massive vertical wind tunnel that keeps you aloft with gusts of 180kmh. You’ll get a brief training session with an instructor, a flightsuit, helmet and goggles; kids aged four years and over can try it too. Reserve this well in advance.

It’s no easy feat maneuvering in the wind tunnel during the one-minute flights, and you may find yourself bumping into the transparent walls in a very ungainly fashion. Helpful instructors fly with you, though, and part of the fun is watching them perform gravity-defying skydiving acrobatics. Be sure to stretch before and after.

It's about 25km north of Downtown Montréal via Rte 15.
