  • Dam and species in both sides of it-impressive! Very beautiful! The jumps look scary even! From our company no one ventured. The value 255 francs, there are 3 levels-jump facing forward back into the abyss, and the most recent level-holding hands on the rope (there is additional insurance on the belt). The dam is very windy, even in hot weather, take your jackets.

  • Just 20 minutes from Locarno is the Lake of Vogorno, formed from the Verzasca dam. Nice location, Easy parking and a major work

  • We visit the Verzasca Valley from Locarno to Sonogno village, passing through the breathtaking dam (not me this day break the but done nothing to think ca shiver), then the old Roman bridge has Lavertezzo or runs a river of color green Emerald clear and transparent, splendid work of erosion on the rocks also. Finally we arrived at the village of Sonogno picturesque houses furnished with flowers. In short, a visit to Advisor for the nature lovers.

  • Worth the short drive from town. The view from the dam is quite impressive.
  • It's a very tall Dam and it would be awesome adventure to do the Bungee Jumping when it's open.
  • Site of the bungee jump in James Bond Goldeneye, brave travellers come to perform the same jump (safely).
  • Must go when youre in the region!
  • Amazing dam. I first saw it when I was a child in the 1960's. Been back a few times since, last time was around 2000. Its the only place that I have ever suffered vertigo with looking over the edge. Made famous now because of the james bond film. There is no way I would do the bungie jump that can be done off the edge !
