Zipline adventure in Vík

A zipline ride is a great adventure for all those who love the thrill of doing something challenging but, at the same time, very safe. The tour includes a hike through a breathtaking river canyon and four zipline rides; 120, 240, 30 and 140 meters long. The scenery below you is breathtaking, and you will have a birds-eye view of it as you whiz down the zipline.

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 the schedule.

The Beginning

Our Ziplines are next to the village of 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 in Vík, 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 ensure 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, you wait your turn, and the next thing you know, you are zipping above the canyon, heart pumping with excitement and having the best birds-eye view of the area you couldn’t imagine beforehand.

The End

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

Hiking boots

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