Zipline & Lava show
Zipline & Lava show
This combo tour combines great outdoor activity and our adventurous zipline experience. You’ll view a steaming hot show from the lava experts at the Icelandic Lava Show. The Zipline Adventure takes you through a breathtaking river canyon. Afterwards, the lava show will warm you up, which we think is necessary after a day out in Icelandic weather.
Booking both together get’s you a 30% discount on both activities, which is ideal for the curious traveller. Total price: ISK 17.800kr. Our price: ISK 12.460kr.
1/2 day adventure – Zipline & Lava show
About this experience
We have daily departures from Easter to Christmas (or thereabout).
Allow 3,5 – 4 hours for this combo experience.
All safety equipment, a ride to the starting point from the meeting point, a certificated guided hike, four ziplines and a lava show with natural sizzling hot lava.
You will need
Hiking shoes and warm, windproof clothes – dress according to the weather; gloves and a thin beanie are optional. We recommend braiding long hair or tying it in a low bun to fit under the helmet.
Víkurbrat 5, Vík í Mýrdal, South Iceland (check map). Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your departure 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 the schedule.
We meet up on location at our base. If you arrive early, feel free to use the restroom facilities, use Wi-Fi and sip a cup of tea or coffee before our guides arrive to meet you. You will be briefed on safety protocols, get dressed in a harness and helmet and drive to the zipline starting point. We start by hiking to the first of 4 ziplines. We will give you detailed safety instructions and ensure you are comfortable with what to do during the experience so you will enjoy our ziplines to the fullest and stay safe. Once you’re ready, you wait your turn, and next thing you know, you are zipping above the canyon, heart pumping with excitement on our two first ziplines, Big Rush and The Gentle Giant. Then we take a short hike through the unique rock formation of Grafargil (Grave Canyon) to the next activity, Leap of Faith. Lastly, the last zipline, Big Rush, will take you over a stunning waterfall named Hundafoss. Last but not least, we have a short hike back to our base if the weather permits. If not, we drive.
Icelandic Lava show
After your exciting experience outdoors on our ziplines, you’ll attend the Icelandic Lava Show (showtimes vary depending on your booking time). This is the only place to experience hot molten lava close safely. The show recreates a volcano eruption, similar to what Eyjafjallajökull and Katla volcano is famous for, by pouring molten lava (1100°C / 2000°F) into the showroom and over ice. It is an epic battle between the elements and a unique opportunity to get close to red-hot lava, see it flowing, hear it sizzling, and feel the intense heat that radiates from it. A true feast for all the senses.

NEED SOMETHING MORE CUSTOM? YOU DREAM IT, AND WE’LL MAKE IT HAPPEN
Do you have a big group or just a small group wanting privacy? Want to entertain your staff or add to the activities in Vík? Whatever it is, we can customize it to your needs. Get in touch.
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.
