Swinging thousands of feet from a cliff edge with fire at your feet might not be everyone’s idea of a good time but for these adrenaline junkies there is no better feeling.

This insane sport sees daredevils hurling themselves from a make-shift swing on Mount Kjerag in Norway, before performing various risky manoeuvres, including somersaults and plummeting 3,640 to the ground.

And if that wasn’t enough, as these insane pictures show, a fire-breather is also hot on the heels of the jumpers – making the spectacular stunts even more dangerous.

These incredible pictures were shot by father and son team Frank and Simen Haughom, founders of Spectacular Norway, during a recent trip to the iconic Mount Kjerag.

Kjerag, which towers above the Lysefjord in south-western Norway, is a popular destination for base jumping.

Eleven people have died throwing themselves from the mountain, including British stuntman, Terry Forrestal, who died in 2000 aged 52.

Frank said: “It’s very special being at Kjerag.

“To see people jump over the cliffs is fascinating but also very scary because they are so close to the cliff face.”
