Since the first commercial bungee jump was established in New Zealand 30 years ago, extreme bungee jumping sites have opened up over the whole world. Extreme sports tourists are spoilt for choice. If you have the stomach for it, here are four of the wildest bungee jumping locations in the world.
Volcano Bungee, Pucon, Chile
This unique bungee jumping adventure has you flown 10,000 feet high in a helicopter to the top of an active volcano. You then freefall 375 feet into the volcano over the red hot lava so you can get right into the unique fiery landscape, before being flown back to the airport as you dangle 375 feet below the helicopter.
Old Colorado River Bridge, Costa Rica
This is the most tropical location on this list. Here you can jump with nothing but the sounds of the wind and wildlife around you.
Macau Tower, Macau
This jump from China’s Macau Tower is the Guinness World Record Holder for the world’s highest bungee jump. The building is 338 meters tall while the jump itself is 233 meters!
Verzasca Dam, Ticino, Switzerland
Made famous as the location of James Bond’s bungee jump in GoldenEye, the jump from Verzasca Dam is 220 meters high in the breathtaking alpine landscape of Switzerland.
