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 an easy hike through breathtaking river canyon and two zipline rides.
The first one, which is the longer of the two, stretches 235 meters followed by a shorter line of 135 meters. The scenery below you, named Grafargil is incredibly beautiful and you will have the birds-eye view of it as you whiz down the zipline.
All safety equipment, ride to the start from the meeting point, certificated guided hike and two zip-lines.
You will need:
- Hiking shoes
- Warm and windproof clothes – dress according to weather
- Gloves and a thin hat to fit under your helmet
- If you have long hair it’s recommended to braid it under the helmet.
Nordur Vik, Suðurvíkurvegur 5, Vík í Mýrdal, South Iceland – see map here. 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.
Our Zipline is situated right next to the village in Vík in South Iceland surrounded by beautiful hills and valleys. It is not directly accessible by vehicle so after we pick you up at Nordur Vik we drive for 5 minutes, then hike for another 20 minute at a moderate pace to reach the take-off platform for the first zip, named The Gentle Giant. We will give you detailed safety instructions and make sure you are comfortable with what to do during the ride so you will enjoy the ride to the fullest and stay safe. Once you’re ready then you wait your turn and next thing you know, you are zipping above the canyon, heart pumping with excitement and having the best birds-eyes view of the area that you can’t imagine beforehand. Then we take a short hike through amazing rock formation of Grafargil (Grave Canyon) to the next activity, named Leap of Faith. Then follows the second zip-line that we call Little Rush, it will take your over a stunning waterfall, named Hundafoss. Last but not least we have a short hike back to our base, if the weather permits.
We take safety very seriously. Our zipline equipment has been installed and safety-tested by Van Riswick BVBA and is certified according to the strictest EU standards.
A full refund will be offered for any cancellations due to weather conditions or any other safety considerations.
An Zipline Ride is always at your own risk.
