Parachute jumping

Located 30 minutes by car from the centre of Pau and the Bristol Pau hotel, the Lasclaveries aerodrome is a place that brings together many activities for lovers of the great thrill. Here, nature invites itself to the experience and takes a special place, at the heart of the aeronautical activity of the region. Indeed, from the sky you can observe the Pyrenees mountain range, which is a real jewel and attracts a growing number of visitors every year. There are many ways to discover the city and its surroundings, but what could be more original and unforgettable than from the sky? Without a doubt, Pau will offer you a breath of fresh air.

Prepare for your skydive and stay at the hotel

Would you like to get some fresh air and try a sporting experience? The Bristol Pau hotel offers you the perfect combination of a cultural stay and an outdoor experience. Indeed, the Atlantic Pyrenees region benefits from conditions that are particularly suitable for skydiving, a unique experience that you can organise while staying at the hotel.

If you are ready for the big jump, several skydiving centres will welcome you on the Lasclaveries aerodrome, including Pau-Skydive and Paradise 64, to give you an intense experience. After a ten minute briefing on the ground, you will embark with your instructor for a fifteen minute flight over the Pyrenees. Then, at 4000 meters of altitude, it will be time to open the door of the plane for a 50 seconds free fall at 200km/h and a 7 to 8 minutes ride under canopy to enjoy the view of the Pic du Midi d'Ossau and the Pyrenees mountain range. The return to the ground is always full of emotion.

Do you want to go further? The skydiving schools in Pau also offer complete accompanied training courses to become autonomous and thus obtain your skydiving licence.
