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-eye 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 you over a stunning waterfall, named Hundafoss. Last but not least we have a short hike back to our base if the weather permits.
