Discover the joy of soaring over magnificent landscapes on Iceland's longest zipline. Travelers keen to enjoy natural beauty combined with adrenalin-pumping fun should book this tour from Reykjavik now.

Your exciting excursion begins at the BSI bus terminal, located near Reykjavik's city center. For added convenience, you can include a pick-up service straight from your accommodation to the bus terminal for a cheap cost when booking.

Pick-up is 30 minutes before the scheduled departure. You'll travel on a bus to the ziplining base camp near Hveragerdi, the location for the adventure.

In less than an hour, you'll arrive at the starting point, full of anticipation for what lies ahead. The base camp is at the trailhead of the Reykjadalur hot spring valley. It's a beautiful location featuring a canyon, rugged hills, a thermal river, and waterfalls.

The tour's total duration is just over three hours, with roughly 40 minutes allocated for the ziplining excursion. When you arrive, you'll complete the necessary paperwork and receive a safety briefing.

Then, it's time for a short shuttle bus trip to the top of the canyon, followed by a short walk up to the zipline launching platform.

Expert guides will ensure your safety. You'll wear a specialized harness, helmet, and goggles for the best possible ziplining experience.

Prior experience isn't necessary to participate in this exhilarating activity, and children as young as nine can join the fun. The minimum weight is 66 lb (30 kg), and the maximum is 265 lb (120 kg).

You'll complete the conventional zipline ride called "Free as a Bird." It places you in a seated harness with your legs extended in front. You can stretch your arms wide and feel like a bird flying across the sky!

Two zip lines lie side by side. The other is the Superman ride, known as "The Falcon," where zipliners lie stretched out and whiz head-first over the canyon.

With the harness and other safety gear on, it's time for the flight of your life! Feel the wind on your face and the adrenalin rush as you zoom over Iceland's breathtaking and unique terrain.

From the top of the canyon, you'll marvel at the vistas of Hveragerdi town, followed by unmatched views of the Reykjadalur valley. Witness the canyon stretched below amid the vast countryside featuring rivers, hills, and waterfalls.

Enjoy every moment of your birdseye perspective as you ride Iceland's longest zipline. It's also one of the longest in Europe, boasting 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) of thrilling fun that you'll remember for years.

Those who think they'll finish wanting more can add an optional freefall adventure to their tour when booking. Alternatively, you can book the freefall activity at the ziplining reception on the day of your trip, subject to availability.

After your unforgettable ride, you'll be full of energy and excitement from your experience. A driver will then take you back to Reykjavik, where the tour finishes.
