In the opening sequence of the 1995 movie GoldenEye, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) jumps off the Verzasca Dam in Switzerland.

The dam, also known as the Contra Dam, is 220 metre (720 feet) high hydroelectric dam, and is located close to the city of Locarno.

You can make the famous jump yourself at the very same dam, via the bungy operator Trekking Team. The jumping height of 220m not only means world record off ground, it is also the most famous bungy jump world wide. Professional jump masters onsite ensure your safe jump. All you have to bring along is the courage to jump!

Some friends of mine and I did this jump for my 30th birthday. The scenery is spectacular, the jump incredible. I was very impressed by the professionalism of the staff - my equipment was separately checked by two people before I was allowed on the platform.
Locarno and Lake Maggiore are a lovely place to spend a few days, so even if you go to watch a friend make the jump you will enjoy yourself.

My two sons are looking to do this jump in May and are looking for advice on the best way to book their travel and accommodation and where to stay. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. thank you
