Bungee jumping Verzasca Dam Lake Locarno

My 22 year old son and I are traveling in France and Italy for 3 weeks in June. He would like to bungee jump off the Verzasca Dam at Lake Locarno. Could anyone tell me how we would get there from Milan? (Milan will be our stop right before this adventure)

Also, would it be possible to combine doing that along with going to Zermatt to see the Matterhorn? Or is that just not feasible in the 3 days we have in the area?

You might want to read the reviews...some give instructions to get there

This board is really not the correct demographic for bungee jumping so you are likely to get better responses by having your son google and look at the websites of the companies he is thinking of using and/or contacting them for directions or post on thorntree forum.

A simple google search and I found this http://www.trekking.ch/en/bungy/worl...ue-bungy-jumps

Best way to find out how to get there is to contact them and ask.

I guess that you should take a train to Bellinzona, change to a local train to Locarno, then a post bus to val Verzasca

Of course it would be easier and faster with a car.

You could consider overnighting in Locarno, then local train (coded FART to Domodossola, change train to Brig, then change again for Zermatt. About 4 hours and 30 minutes. Both trips worth only in good weather.
