Zipline Adventure in South Iceland from Reykjavik

This trip is an eye-popping, adrenaline-fueled zip line adventure that has you soaring through the air like an eagle over the South Coast of Iceland. We combine it with visits to some of Iceland’s most iconic waterfalls to create an unforgettable experience.

Our first stop is Skógafoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s largest and most powerful waterfalls. The 25-meter-wide cascade thunders down over 60 meters at a site where you can walk almost all the way up to the falls. And if that’s not enough, you can climb up a set of steps to an observation deck at the top of the waterfall to get some amazing pictures of this beast from an unexpected angle.

But you really haven’t seen a waterfall properly until you’re up in the sky dangling over it hurtling down a zip line. Ziplining is a sensational way to get a bird’s-eye view of Iceland’s scenery—lush, green hillsides, trickling streams and a roaring waterfall. And while it’s certainly a thrill to soar through the air, it’s also completely safe. Our equipment has been installed by professionals and certified to pass the strictest EU standards.

After a thorough safety briefing, we take a short hike to the first platform where you sail out on the first line, a 235-meter long segment. From there we take another light hike through picturesque Grafargil canyon to the next take-off point, a 135-meter stretch that takes you over Hundafoss waterfall. The rush of zipping down these lines is enough to get your blood pumping but set against the wild backdrop of South Iceland really turns up the volume on an already rip-roaring good time. Don’t forget some good hiking shoes; warm, windproof clothes (whatever the weather calls for at the time); gloves and a light cap that will fit under your helmet.

On our way back home we stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is unusual in that you can actually take a footpath behind the cascade and fell the cool mist on your face. Having a walk around Seljalandsfoss is a delightful way to get close nature and wind down after the thrill of the ziplines in a beautiful and serene place.
