Exquisite Europe: Skydiving in Brussels

Food & Drink, Wellness, Culture

With its storied squares, historic bridges, ambient restaurants and lively bars, Brussels is a world-class destination for a city break. But for those seeking a more outdoorsy experience, it’s hard to beat the incredible natural beauty of Belgium’s vast forests, craggy peaks and meandering rivers. Enjoy the best of both worlds with an exceptional 3-night stay at Hotel Amigo, combining the luxuries of the big city with a life-changing experience in the Ardennes.

Settle in to your sumptuous Forte Suite, where Royal Belgian Caviar and Ruinart Champagne await, the first of a number of exquisite culinary treats to follow during your stay. A more enduring souvenir, select your choice of bag from the Delvaux Miniatures Belgitude collection at nearby Le 27 Boutique, the ideal accessory for a day of city explorations, before winding down in the Thermes de Spa. In the evening, you’ll be treated to a 4-course Italian dinner at Ristorante Bocconi, served with paired wines and created for you by award-winning chef Igor Rosi.

On the following day, enjoy a scenic drive through the rolling countryside, before arriving at the Skydive Spa in the Belgian Ardennes. Here, suit up and climb into a private plane, which will take off and gain height for fifteen minutes, ascending to an incredible 4000 metres above the mountains. Take in sensational views of the spa town far below, the wind rippling through your hair as you lean out of the door—and let go. Discover the indescribable feeling of total freefall in complete safety as, strapped to your instructor, you reach speeds of up to 200kph before your parachute releases to float you gently down towards the earth. Spot ancient castles, farms and villages from on high as you glide towards your landing spot, where a glass of Champagne will be waiting to celebrate your jump.

The adventure continues with a tour of the countryside in a gleaming 2CV convertible, before lunch at stunning castle Manoir de Lébioles and a chauffeured drive back to Brussels as the adrenaline rush recedes.
