Zakynthos - a beautiful Greek island in the Ionian Sea, is used to hosting holidaymakers, whether it's relaxing on the sandy beaches or taking a swim in the crystal blue sea, there's plenty to bliss you out. There's also an entirely different experience, for the last five years adrenaline junkies have flocked to the island to base jump off the cliffs in the Gofast Games. The jump off point is at a height of 656 feet - 200 metres above sea level. And as you can tell, base jumpers love it SOUNDBITE: (English) Jimmy Pouchart, base jumper: "When you can base jump at a place like this you're in heaven, there's nothing that's any better on this planet" SOUNDBITE: (English) Marta Empinott, base jumper: "When you are standing at the exit point and you look at the views you know that nature is definitely showing off." 39 base jumpers from 10 countries gathered for the four-day event that saw more than 300 jumps.
