The 3 best places in the world to going bungee jumping

If you have yet to tick bungee jumping off your bucket list, you’re in luck.

We have found the top three holiday destinations to do one… just don’t ask us to join you.

Verzasca Dam, Ticino, Switzerland
This 220m dam is famous not just because it is the highest dam in Europe, but because it appeared in the opening to the James Bond movie GoldenEye. This bungee is aptly named the 007 Jump or GoldenEye Bungee Jump. It will set you back around €180.

Extremo Park, Monteverde, Costa Rica
It’s called Bungee Extreme, so you know it’s not for the fainthearted. It’s made from a tram that travels along a cable to a height of 143m and is fast becoming one of the highest jumps in Central America. A single bungee will cost around €45.

Pucón, Chilé
Chile’s Pucon jump has got to be one of the craziest ones around. Thrill seekers will jump from a helicopter into a live volcano before being flown back to town still bouncing about on the bungee… the journey back is 35 miles. It’s a bit pricey and will set you back around €9,500.
