This exciting trip begins when you arrive at the base camp of the longest zipline in Iceland. The attraction is located in the town of Hveragerdi, just around 28 miles (45 kilometers) east of Reykjavik. It will only take you less than an hour to reach the area because it’s along Iceland’s ring road.

Once you check in and complete the necessary paperwork in the reception area by the Reykjadalur trailhead, the guide will drive you to the head of the Svartagljufur canyon. Afterward, you’ll take a brief hike up the mountain to the beginning of the zipline.

The short ride and hike to the flight tower on the Kambar plateau will only take a few minutes. Both will let you see the beautiful valley surrounded by breathtaking views, from sprawling grasslands to rivers and mountains.

Before experiencing the longest zipline in Iceland, the pilot guide will brief you about the experience. They will ensure that you are well-suited with safety equipment such as a helmet and comfortable before you’re sent down the one-kilometer-long flight.

While on this Iceland zipline tour, you will fly down the mountain, taking in the beauty of the geothermal area of southern Iceland. The line passes over the stunning black canyon, also known as Svartagljufur gorge, and moves through the diverse Icelandic nature. You will see fascinating river streams and waterfalls all over this canyon.

The standard ticket for this zipline experience means you’ve paid for a seated position on the tour. You will be comfortably seated in the custom-made harnesses and securely attached to the line. This ticket is also the most popular option because of the more relaxing speed, which you can partially control.

As you continue the ride, you will be perfectly safe to look around and take in the beauty of nature around you. You can also focus on enjoying the flight itself, gaining speed, and savoring the thrills of the flight. 

After this unforgettable experience, you will return to the reception area, where you can drop off your gear.
