Day 7 of things to do in British Columbia

HURL YOURSELF FROM A GREAT HEIGHT

Make like a bird – or a human yo-yo. British Columbia’s two commercial bungee sites provide safe and beautiful settings in which to take the plunge

Whistler Bungee offers year-round jumps over the Cheakamus River, with views of old-growth forest and basalt column cliffs. You’ll plummet more than 45 metre, tethered by a strong, highly elastic cord fastened around your ankles or chest. Past participants have ranged from preschool age to a man who jumped on his 100th birthday, says operations manager Matt van de Horst. “He said it was jut one of those things he had to do.”

The bridge at WildPlay Element Parks Nanaimo stretches over the scenic Nanaimo river. If your knees turn to tapioca after signing up, “WildPlay will issue a “chicken ticket” for another day. One weekend each February, the truly fearless can jump naked, with WildPlay donating the proceeds to charity
