Zip lines are fast and exciting ways to get your next adrenaline fix. With many around the world, you are able to travel at high speeds from mountains, through forests, and looking over lakes.
Walking down mountains can be fun for sure, but can they get you as pumped up as "flying" down a zip-line at up to 100mph??
In the past they were used in early history by people living in the Alps and Himalayas as a means for transport through treacherous terrain and an efficient way to transport supplies.
Some of the most electrifying zip lines on the planet not only offer a large kick of adrenaline but also stunning views that you will remember for a life time.
Velocity in Snowdonia, Wales is the longest zip line in Europe and in the right conditions the fastest on the planet with tops speeds exceeding 100mph (160km/h).
Once you enter the drop zone there’s no going back… descending 1560m and reaching speeds of 165km/h there’s no doubt Velocity is up there with the best zip lines experiences the world has to offer.
