My attention was recently drawn to a new bungy jump in Norway. Built, not without some difficulty and a lot of ingenuity, last August, it is now in semi-operational order.

This jump is at Kåfjorddalen in the Lyngenfjord area and was completed on the 20th of August 2011. The bridge over the Gorsa-gorge was constructed with the help of the above helicopter and an able crew of engineers.
Intrepid bungee jumpers were lining up to throw themselves off the bridge on the opening day, but currently the bungee-jumping is only sporadically available, although they are working on having a fixed facility before long.

It is expected to be a popular destination in the Summer! Depending on how good your Norwegian is you can follow this link: bungy jump at Kåfjorddalen, but sadly my Norwegian isn’t up to much, so I can’t help at all! but I did watch the video … which I can’t upload. However, it looks pretty fearsome!
