About this experience


Daily departures in summer.


The whole tour takes 1,5 – 2 hours. Depending on the size and shape of the group along with weather conditions.


All safety gear certificated guided hike and five ziplines.

You will need

Hiking shoes and warm, windproof clothes – dress according to weather. If you have long hair it’s recommended to braid it or tie it in a low bun.

Meeting Point

Glerárgil við Hlíðarbraut, Akureyri. Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your booking time.


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.

We welcome you at the Zipline Akureyri headquarters (see map below) where we will help you put on the safety gear.

Then we walk 2-3 min. to the first line. One of your guides zips ahead and then receives one guest at a time. The other guide assists and secures you to go.

Following the short forest paths between the 5 lines our guides entertain you with stories of the area, probably not all true.

At the end of the fifth and last line, we hike the 5-10 min, back to headquarters.

There you can relax in the excellent weather, swap photos and experiences with other tour guests and perhaps enjoy a packed lunch if you bring it.

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.
