What is B.A.S.E Jumping?

BASE jumping is the recreational sport of jumping from fixed objects, using a parachute to descend safely to the ground. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: buildings, antennae (referring to radio masts), spans (bridges) and earth (cliffs). Participants exit from a fixed object such as a cliff and after an optional freefall delay, deploy a parachute to slow down their descent before landing softly. A popular form of BASE jumping is wingsuit BASE jumping.

The Nærøyfjord area is (in our opinion) one of the best places on earth for BASE jumping, If you are into either sick wingsuit lines, scenic onesie flights, steep tracking jumps or cheeky slider down jumps? Or all of the above?? We have something for you. The area offers endless opportunities for BASE jumping if you are willing to put in some effort. A lot of the jumps have demanding hikes, so being fit for hiking is highly recomended. To be able to reach the exit, and still have the energy to perform the jump safely. If you like heli-rides to exit, we offer that also, on the Gudvangen BASE Heli Day Tuesday 25th.

On days without BASE events, local BASE jumpers will guide to different exits for slick/2piece, one-piece/ws, advanced ws and sub terminal/slider down.
