Spice up your trip to Iceland with an exhilarating zipline tour in Hveragerdi over canyons and geothermal valleys. Adventure-seekers who want to experience a seated ride and freefall jump in the longest zipline in Iceland should book this tour today.

The combo tour begins as you arrive in the reception area of the zipline operator in Hveragerdi. This ticket includes no pickup, so guests must arrange their transfer from Reykjavik or other Icelandic locations. Fortunately, the area is relatively accessible because it lies on the ring road or Route 1.

Before your zipline flight, the guide or operator staff will first drive you to the black canyon and lead you for a short hike. After a few minutes, you will reach the flight tower on top of a plateau, where you will suit up for the thrilling ride.

For your safety and convenience, the guide will brief you with tips and rules as you suit up with the necessary gear. They will provide you with a safety harness and helmet, making you comfortable and steady throughout the journey.

The first part of this experience is called the freefall line, which will let you plunge like a puffin bird from a height of 49 feet (15 meters). Apart from being an exciting experience, the freefall is an excellent opener to keep your adrenaline rushing before the main activity. 

Soon after, you’ll embark on a thrilling Icelandic zipline covering one kilometer of track. At an elevation of 108 feet (33 meters), you’ll fly at a great yet relaxed speed over stunning valleys and landscapes in Hveragerdi.

The conventional zipline ride features a seated harness you can partially control. You can slow down slightly by sitting upright, while you can speed up by keeping your arms and legs close to your body. There’s also a handrail attached to your harness that you can hold while feeling the cold air breeze.

You’ll enjoy beautiful sceneries unique to Hveragerdi and Reykjadalur valley as you go through the flight. The Svartagljufur gorge, also known as the Black canyon, snakes through the entire valley. River streams, small waterfalls, and lush vegetation crisscross the area, surrounded by picturesque mountains.

If you’re traveling with a partner or friend, you can experience the zipline simultaneously. Two lines run parallel, allowing you to try the longest zipline in Iceland together. 

After the exhilarating combo flight, you’ll return to the reception area, where you can access the local cafe and check out the videos from the tour. The entire experience will take you around 40 minutes. 

If you’re still up for more adventure, you may also try hiking and geothermal bathing at the hot spring area in Reykjadalur.

Experience the nature of Iceland, from canyons to hot spring valleys, with this exciting zipline tour from Hveragerdi. Check availability now by choosing a date.
