Take your Icelandic trip to the next level by joining this zipline tour in Vik over the diverse landscapes of South Iceland. Those who want to embrace new adventures while enjoying nature should look no further than here.

The exciting tour begins as you meet your guide at the zipline base in Vikurbraut, 116 miles (187 kilometers) from Iceland's capital. The village of Vik is one of the most scenic coastal areas in Iceland, so you may enjoy exploring the area before or after your tour. However, you should book your transfer separately as this tour doesn't include a pick-up from Reykjavik.

From Vik, the guide will drive you to the base of some picturesque hills. Then you'll start a brief hike to reach the take-off platform of the zipline. The walk will only take a few minutes at a moderate pace while stunning views of lush valleys surround you.

The zipline express features two lines with varying lengths, speeds, and overall experience. For this excursion, you will try both ziplines plus an exciting surprise activity from your guide if you're up for it. Before the adventure begins, you will suit up with all the safety equipment included in the package, such as harnesses and a helmet.

First on the list is the Leap of Faith line that will let you zoom across a shallow river in a spectacular canyon. Although this is the shortest zipline in the area, it provides one of the most exhilarating experiences for the perfect adrenaline rush. The guide will send you one by one to the other side of the river.

The day's highlight is the 400-foot (120-meter) zipline called Big Rush. This line is a classic favorite among the guests because of the incredible flight speed over the sprawling valleys of South Iceland. A bonus sight here is a beautiful waterfall that you can marvel at while high above the air.

To help you prepare for this zipline tour in Iceland, wear appropriate clothing for the cold weather. In particular, consider wearing windproof clothing with warm layers and gearing up with gloves and a thin that you can wear under the helmet. As the tour will also involve easy hiking, sturdy hiking shoes will also be necessary.

After a back-to-back zipline experience across the region's hills, valleys, and rivers, you will hike and drive back to Vik. Then, you can either explore the village and its black beaches or see other attractions in the land of fire and ice to get the most out of your holiday.

See the breathtaking beauty of South Iceland as you whiz across valleys and rivers on this zipline tour from Vik. Check availability now by choosing a date.
