Verzasca Dam bungee jump, Switzerland
What better way to start this list than by following in the footsteps of one of cinema’s greatest adrenaline junkies? The Verzasca Dam was the setting for James Bond’s bungee jump in Golden Eye (1995), and now you can do the 007 jump yourself. It means you free fall for eight seconds – although it will probably seem like longer. The second highest bungee jump in the world, it can be found on the dam in the Swiss municipality of Lavertezzo.
