1. Kawarau Bridge, New Zealand

This is where it all began. And hence, at least one trip is absolutely essential for any fans of bungee jumping. It is said that since AJ Hackett took the first jump here some 26 years ago, more than 650,000 people have taken the plunge here, from the Kawarau Bridge. This location is on the South Island and close to Queenstown, which means that you could take a nice trip to the capital city and its beautiful surroundings to then round off your trip with that special bungee jump!

3. Verzasca Dam, Switzerland

Ready for some James Bond feel? Then, you should absolutely jump down the Verzasca Dam in Switzerland. Besides being located in a very nice area of the country and relatively close to towns like Lugano or Ascona, this dam really was the site of a James Bond movie. Heck, that special feel of jumping from the same location you saw in the film is amazing – you should really go check it out!

4. Extremo Park, Costa Rica

Bungee jumping in the jungle? That is possible in Costa Rica! Check out the Extremo Park, in which you don't really jump – you slide down over a series of cables. However, the experience is incredible. You literally slide down into the forest and have an amazing view!
