European BASE Jumping Expedition

Guess what? If you’re a BASE jumper who has completed a First BASE Course, you’re invited to join us on our yearly European adventures. (Watch that video and try to resist signing up. We dare you.)

Apex BASE’s European BASE Expedition will take you and your magical backpack for a grand introduction to Norway, Switzerland and Italy, for some of the most epic moments of your life. The journey will give you the opportunity to experience BASE Jumping from (very, very) big walls — and, ultimately, give you the guidance and information you need to be able to return to Europe without assistance on your next adventure.

What to Expect:

The Apex BASE European Expedition is organized to help you progress in the sport under the guidance of a highly skilled, deeply experienced team of instructors. You will be introduced to the classic exit points of Europe in a format that encourages you to ask questions, evaluate your judgment and expand your skill set in confidence.

During the trip, you will be encouraged to improve your skills in terminal and sub-terminal tracking,* canopy performance and general BASE knowledge.

What’s Required:

  1. Each jumper must prove their successful completion of an organized First BASE Jump Course. To jump in Norway, per the statutes of the Norwegian BASE Klubb, you must have logged at least 250 skydives and 15 BASE jumps.
  2. Each jumper must complete our Pre-Europe Advanced Course. We offer the PEAC at the Perrine Bridge each spring. This allows us to evaluate your current progress in BASE (and will give you the jump numbers you need for Norway, if that’s an issue).

How to Join Us:

If you’re interested and would like to be considered for one of the available slots, please send us an email. We will respond with the cost of this years trip and the details of the services provided.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions! We’re looking forward to having you along for what just might be the best summer in history.

*Please note that this is NOT a wingsuit BASE jumping expedition. We will require everyone to use a tracking suit during terminal jumps. If you have interest in wingsuit BASE Jumping, please contact us for more information.
