    Niouc suspension footbridge

The Niouc suspension footbridge is one of the highest in Europe at 190 metres. Spanning the Val d’Anniviers, it is also known as the “Spider’s bridge” thanks to its network of metal cables suggesting a spider’s web. Constructed in 1922 to carry water across the valley through a pipe, the bridge is now used for bungy jumps. For 5 francs, hikers with a good head for heights can enjoy a crossing that will take their breath away.
