The Nevis Bungy and Swing
If you’re set on doing a bungy jump in New Zealand then why not go for the big daddy straight out of the gate? The Nevis Bungy is the biggest in New Zealand and, what is more, the third highest bungy jump in the world. The platform itself is 134m above the Nevis Canyon floor. That’s three times the height of the Statue of Liberty. Casting yourself into the void at this height might strike many as complete lunacy, and it is. What sets the Nevis Bungy in a class of its own though, is that the platform itself is suspended in space in the middle of the gorge by wires. You have to get a cable car out to the platform, and that is scary enough in itself, and that’s after heading out on a 40-minute cross-country ride in a 4×4 from Queenstown.
