Indoor Sky Diving | An Experience with Voss Vind’s Wind Tunnel
With both girls chattering away excitedly in the back, we headed past the imposing Hardangerfjord and into Voss, the adventure capital of Norway. Hardangerfjord is the longest fjord in Hordland at some 179km long stretching all the way from the coast to Eidfjord but adventure seekers come for Voss and its famed adventurous pursuits
Apparently sky diving is for everyone, and we can vouch for that as this was our first time…. the amount of tunnel time for us only lasted 10mins but the whole experience from instruction beforehand to debrief afterwards lasted almost 2hrs on a sweltering hot May day….
Every family adventure should have Something special
So how does it work? We didn’t know so we asked… here was the reply “ Voss Vind is Norway’s only vertical wind tunnel with tempered air circulation”.. so what does that mean to me and you… well it means it has a pretty much 100% safety built in to the design. Protected above and below you in the 98ft chamber (although you only fly some 14ft high at the max) with a 1608 bhp engine to power it!
Look its not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want to test yourselves and challenge what you think you can or can’t do… you’d do worse than to try this… And perhaps what made the experience for us was the team of instructors who brought it all to life…. in fact our instructor had to leave just before the end as he was sky diving that night…at the local drop point on top of the hill overlooking Voss Vind
