Zipline Adventure in South Iceland

Embark on an exhilarating zipline experience in south Iceland suitable for thrill-seekers who appreciate both excitement and safety. The adventure involves a scenic hike through a breathtaking river canyon and four zipline rides, each varying in length (120, 240, 30, and 140 meters). As you glide down the zipline, you’ll enjoy a mesmerizing birds-eye view of the picturesque surroundings.

Located near the village of Vík in South Iceland, the ziplines are nestled amidst beautiful hills and valleys. The adventure begins at Ránarbraut 1 in Vík. After a 5-minute drive, we embark on a 5-minute moderate-paced hike to reach the take-off platform for the first zipline, known as Little Rush. Detailed safety instructions are provided to ensure your comfort and safety during the zipline experience. Once prepared, you eagerly await your turn, and before you know it, you’re soaring above the canyon, filled with excitement and enjoying an unparalleled view of the area.

Adjacent to the first zipline, the second, The Gentle Giant, awaits. Stretching over 240 meters, it is often lauded as the most scenic ride. After the safe completion of the initial ziplines, a brief 10-minute hike through the unique rock formation of Grafargil (Grave Canyon) leads to the next activity, Leap of Faith – the shortest line, with a few surprises we won’t divulge now to maintain the element of surprise. The adventure concludes with the fourth zipline, Big Rush, which takes you over the stunning Hundafoss (Dog’s waterfall). Depending on weather conditions, a short hike back to our base may be offered to wrap up the experience.

We have daily departures from Easter to Christmas (or thereabout).

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