Sometimes we need to change departure times slightly due to the weather. Please check your email before your booked time and leave us a phone number so we can call or text you in case we have to contact you with changes in schedule.

The Beginning

Our Zipline is situated right next to the village in Vík in South Iceland surrounded by beautiful hills and valleys. It is not directly accessible by vehicle so after we meet at our base at Víkurbraut 5, we drive for 5 minutes, then hike for another 5 minutes at a moderate pace to reach the take-off platform for the first zip, named Little Rush. We will give you detailed safety instructions and make sure you are comfortable with what to do during the zipline so you will enjoy the ride to the fullest and stay safe. Once you’re ready then you wait your turn and next thing you know, you are zipping above the canyon, heart pumping with excitement and having the best birds-eye view of the area that you can’t imagine beforehand.

The End

Our second zipline, The Gentle Giant, is just around the corner from the first one, this is our longest ride, 240 meters and often named the prettiest one. When everyone has safely finished the two first ziplines it’s time for a short hike (about 10 minutes) through amazing rock formation of Grafargil (Grave Canyon) to the next activity, named Leap of Faith. This is our shortest line and we do things here a little bit differently, we won’t tell you more for now because we don’t want to spoil your surprise. Lastly follows the fourth zip-line that we call Big Rush, it will take you over a stunning waterfall, named Hundafoss (Dog’s waterfall). To finish off the experience we might offer a short hike back to our base if the weather permits.

Hiking boots

Remamber your hiking boots! You will be travelling in Iceland, our terrain is mostly untouched and we would like to keep it that way. That’s why we don’t make huge walking paths in the landscape but follow narrow and uneven sheep trails along our trails. Hiking boots help you when the route is wet and slippery and support your ankles if you are unused to walking on uneven surface.
