As a sport for exilarating emotions, bungy (or bungee) jumping has acquired its own fans in Greece. It only became known a few years ago as among others, there are not enough high buildings or large bridges to attract jumpers who want to create their own personal record. However, the desire of many young persons to live this unique feeling caused by jumping into the void was the motivating force for the creation of specialised companies that train people in bungy jumping. The areas where people jump from are closely linked to bridges, especially those at the Isthmus in Corinth and at Chalkis.
A characteristic of these companies is their professionalism and their attention to detail, while the prices they charge the public make this sport available to just about everyone.Every day during the summer months, as well as on every weekend during the other months of the year, hundreds of people take their first jump under the careful eyes of a professional team, from modern bungy platforms that conform to strict safety standards certified by international organizations.
