The 007 Bungy site is situated on the Verzasca dam in the canton of Ticino, southern Switzerland. The artificial lake is the Lago die Vogorno. Your next bigger towns are Locarno or also Bellinzona. The dam belongs to the commune of Gordola with the postal code 6596. Once you reach Gordola, remain on the main road until you see the turn off into the Valle Verzasca. Take that turn off and continue on the Via Valle Verzasca until you see the immense dam after about 2km. The Bungy site is situated in the middle on top of the dam. There's a parking lot. The bus also stops next to the parking lot and is called "Diga Verzasca".
Arriving by plane:
The closest airports are either Zürich (Switzerland) or Milan (Italy). The journey by (rental) car takes roughly 3 hours from Zürich Airport and about 2 hours from Milan. We recommend to allow for more travel time during peak season in summer. Train & bus from Zürich will take about 3 hours and from Milan roughly 4 hours.
