The International Zip Line between Spain and Portugal

(Photo: Limite Zero)

The Spanish town of Sanlúcar de Guadiana and the Portuguese town of Alcoutim are separated by the Guadiana River. You can take a boat across the border. But if you want to move really quickly, then zip line is the way to go.

David Jarman’s Limite Zero is the private company responsible for this fun project. For 15 euros, you can travel at 45 miles per hour down the 0.44-mile long zip line at a 12.47% slope. You can then take a ferry back, which is helpful, because you’d surely want to do it again and again.

The ride lasts about a minute. But since you travel across a time zone boundary, you could also say that it takes one hour and one minute.

More like minus 59 minutes, which makes it cost minus €885 per hour (in other words, they give you €885 per hour to try it).

But I see Antonio Ingles beat me to it.
