In the heart of the Italian Alps, somewhere between Milan and Turin, there is a bridge hanging at 152 m / 499 ft above a narrow forested valley. The Colossus Bridge is one of the Top 10 Bungee Jumping Points around the world and has become, over the years, one of the classic ones too!
The breathtaking view of the landscape below and the impressive height of the bridge, attract to the point hundreds of adrenaline seekers every year! The jump from Colossus Bridge is addressed to both skilled and experienced bungee jumping fans, as well as to beginners. Since 1994, one of the most renowned Bungee Jumping centers in Europe is in charge of organizing the jumps with qualified personnel and strict safety rules.
The maximum vertical speed acquired during the free-fall from the Colossus Bridge is 28 m/s – this is more than 100 km/h. The free-fall lasts for approximately 5 seconds and one can jump with rain or shine, anytime of the day. In fact, many choose to try the night bungee jump offered by the Bungee Center there; an admittedly unique experience!
In the surroundings of Veglio-Mosso, where the Colossus Bridge is, visitors can enjoy many other things. A small open-air museum is telling the story of the bridge and how it revived an entire valley and its economy after a disastrous flood in 1968. The, formerly known as, Pistolesa Bridge was built to unite Old Man and Mosso after the flood destroyed the road that used to connect the two. More adventure parks and a ropes course are located around the area to complete your day’s adventure after the jump.
