The original jump of James Bond

A truly unique experience

Suitable for teenagers & adults

James Bond Bungee Jump (Ticino, CH)

About 40 minutes from Cannobio Lakeview Camp & Resort is the Valle Verzasca(Verzasca Valley). The dam at the entrance to the valley in the village of Vogorno is 220 m high, one of the highest dams in the world, and an important supplier of electricity for Ticino and southern Switzerland.

The dam became world famous in 1995: In the opening scene of James Bond’s “Goldeneye,” the British secret agent James Bond runs over the wall, attaches himself to a rope and jumps down the 220-meter-high wall to penetrate a Russian chemical plant. Of course, the quick change of location is fictitious and Valle Verzasca is obviously not in Russia, but the jump is quite real and breathtaking: During the summer months, a Swiss company offers the world-famous jump from 220m, one of the highest bungee jumps in the world, on a daily basis. Jumps are also possible in the off-season by arrangement.

At around 200 francs, this jump is not exactly a cheap adventure, but it is a truly unique one.
