Bungee Jumping

 

Below are some of the best bungee jumps in the world:


 

Queenstown

You are spoilt for choice in Queenstown when it comes to adventure sports and bungee jumping is to the fore. Starting with the Ben Nevis Highwire, one of the highest commercial bungees in the world at 440ft, there is also “the Ledge” which is on top of a mountain overlooking Queenstown, or the Kawarau Bridge, the original commercial bungee jump.

Perrine Bridge, USA (486 ft)

The great thing about bungee jumping is that it does not have to be from a spectacular height to be a buzz. Jumping from a small crane or platform is sure to get your adrenaline going. It’s a very safe way of experiencing a thrill.
