Our zip line is located near to the idyllic village of Vik on Iceland's iconic south coast, surrounded by rolling green hills and picturesque valleys. It cannot be directly accessed in normal vehicles, so we will collect you at Nordur in Vik and make the 5-minute drive to our base camp, where you will meet our friendly guide, get kitted out and get a short safety briefing. Then we will take the short 20-minute hike, through a dramatic river canyon, to the platform where the zip line starts.
Then, before you know it, you will be soaring over some stunning Icelandic scenery, enjoying a bird’s eye view over some wonderful sights. There is nothing quite like zip-lining: the whistle of the wind in your ears, the exhilaration of being up so high and the visual feast that is whizzing past below. Following that we will take a short hike through the stunning Grafargil (Grave Canyon) rock formation, which has earnt the nickname ‘the Leap of Faith’. Our second zip-line is nicknamed the ‘Little Rush’ and will take you over a roaring waterfall named Hundafoss and the sensation of seeing the frothing white waters from above is equally as amazing as the first. Finally, we will hike back to our base (weather permitting), the perfect way to end an unforgettable experience.
The zip-line ride is completely safe, and our friendly team of experts means that it is suitable for children too. The tour begins with an easy hike through an awe-inspiring river canyon, followed by two zip-line rides. The first, which is longer than the second, encompasses a 235 meter stretch of land, while the second is slightly shorter at 135 meters. Beneath both is a majestic area of Icelandic countryside, known as Grafargil, renowned for its spectacular natural beauty. There is no better way to experience it, than with a bird’s eye view!
The safety of our guests is always paramount: our zip-line equipment is state-of-the-art and is regularly safety tested by Van Riswick BVBA and is certified in accordance with the most rigorous European Union standards. All safety equipment that you need will be provided and a certified guide will operate both zip-lines.
Please note that we may sometimes have to alter departure times according to the weather. Please make sure that you check your email before departing on the tour. It is vital that the number that you provide us with is accurate so that we can text or call you if the schedule is changed.
