Dogs are welcome at Gryttjom with some restrictions. It’s a stressful environment with a lot of people and a lot of nervousness, so keep your dog on a leash. If you’re unsure, leave your pooch at home. Toilets, café, wifi, playground, basketball court etc, – all is available if you forget something. And remember, alcohol consumption is prohibited at the airfield.

ABOUT THE JUMP

You will find all relevant information regarding the jump in your confirmation e-mail you received when you made your reservation. The time you booked is when we expect you to arrive, no need to be early. Expect to spend around 2 hours at the drop zone.

WEATHER FORECAST THE DAY BEFORE

There’s no point in calling us the day before the jump. At that point we don’t know if tomorrow is jumpable or not, and we have no better forecasts than what you find online.

In the morning we can evaluate the what the local weather is and make decisions. Low cloud cover, continuous rain or winds stronger than 11 m/s keep us on the ground. We ask for your understanding if the jump is postponed or cancelled due to weather. But we do everything we can to avoid any unnecessary travelling on your part.

Weather OK = Confirmation – Lets go!

The contact listed in your reservation will receive an SMS no later than 2 hours before your time slot. If you have to leave home earlier than this, or haven’t received it 2 hours before, call customer service at 08-410 458 67. Make sure you confirm your slot before you leave for Gryttjom to avoid any unnecessary trips.

No, due to safety reasons, tandem jumpers aren’t allowed to bring any “distractions” in free fall. If you want pictures or film of the experience, look thru the options we provide. Photographer or Hand camera.

A friend of mine suddenly decided to join me in Gryttjom, can my friend buy a "drop-in slot" jump with some kind of Photography in Gryttjom?

Even if you are already on your way to Gryttjom, always give us a call so that we know of your friend. Most of the time the day is fully booked, but sometimes slots open up. To find a photographer is more difficult last minute. Hand Camera a little easier. We will try to fit your friend in but can’t guarantee anything.

We can’t guarantee that there are any available options once you come to Gryttjom. Sometimes it can be solved by switching slots. Of course we try to accomodate your wishes but it’s usually a little tricky.  The only way to be sure is to make the reservation well in advance.

Do you offer group discounts?

No, we don’t offer discounts for larger groups, students or companies.
