      Bungy Niouc Bridge Switzerland

      May 13 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

      Niouc Bridge was built in 1922, as a means to get water from one side of the valley to the other, its why you see a thick red pipe running along the top of the bridge.

      One of the staff members grew up there in the village and when she was little, years after the bridge had stopped being used for water, the local kids would run along jumping the gaps in the bridge from missing and broken wood 😬 with no safety precautions whatsoever 🤣

      The bridge was bought for its current purpose for the grand sum of 2 Swiss Francs, which was only due to the law in Switzerland stipulating you must make a profit from property sale... The guy who owned it before them bought it for 1 Swiss Franc 🤣

      Well anyway now it is a playground for adventurous travellers, you can bungee, swing, zipline & even walk the slackline which is at the end of the video

      It's the highest bungee jump in the world in terms of altitude, and said to be the most beautiful

      The people were lovely and we ended up camping there amongst the staff & their friends & families, who all stay here for the weekends in vans and a wood hut, and live in near villages through the week while there are no jumps booked

      The jumps themselves were incredible, though Lenny was a little traumatised 🙈 but he adored the rest of the day, the place is like a park so a playground loads of games and family friendly dogs & a fire etc

      Best day of this trip for all 3 of us in the end 🥳
