If you’re seeking an adrenaline rush during your trip to Brittany, consider bungee jumping at the Coquilleau viaduct. Although the hilly terrain of the region may not seem ideal for extreme sports, the viaduct, located in Vendée in southern Brittany, rises to a height of around fifty meters and provides an exciting bungee jumping experience.
One weekend a month, the viaduct becomes a gathering place for thrill-seekers seeking the best bungee jumping spots in Brittany. Situated an hour’s drive from Nantes, the Coquilleau viaduct spans a river called the “Mother,” which bungee jumpers can observe before taking the plunge.
While the bungee cord will keep you from hitting the water, you’ll still have to climb onto a platform and jump from the 52-meter high top, which may be modest in size but is certainly dizzying. Keep in mind that bungee jumping is a dangerous activity subject to weather conditions, and be sure to follow all instructions from the qualified professionals supervising your jump.
