The famous heli day is located 45 minutes from Voss in Gudvangen (Nærøyfjord), one of UNESCO’s world heritage areas. Gudvangen is a strikingly beautiful steep valley filled with glistening waterfalls and a crystal clear river running from the top of the valley all the way down to the fjord.
BASE jumpers will be flown by a helicopter to an exit point called Sparkling Diamond, located on the south side of the valley roughly 360 metres below the peak of Skjerpisnuten 1480m.
Spectators can enjoy a breathtaking view and follow the base jumping activities throughout the day.
