Family Zipline Akureyri, North Iceland

Minimum age

8 years old

Difficulty

Moderate

Duration

2 hours

Location

Akureyri

Professional guides lead you on an adventure trail with five ziplines, forest paths and informative stories. The river canyon Glerárgil is a hidden nature gem running straight through the middle of Akureyri town. On this tour, you will find your way through stunning scenery experienced by a few, even the locals.

Thanks to our thoughtfully designed trail, this experience is easily accessible to most. However, you need to meet minimum physical requirements: You must be 30 – 120 kg (65 – 260 lbs) for safety reasons and can hike uneven paths for up to 10 min. at a time. Children must be at least 8 years old and 30 kg (65 lbs) and accompanied by a parent. We strongly advise waterproof trail shoes with a good grip, because we walk on uneven paths in various conditions. Dress according to the weather and you’ll be happily zipping in any weather.

Itinerary

THE TOUR

The experience takes about 1,5 – 2 hours in total and goes something like this:

  • We welcome you at the Zipline Akureyri headquarters (see map below) where we help you put on the safety gear.
  • Then we walk 2-3 min. to the first line. One of your guides zips ahead and then receives one guest at a time. The other guide assists and secures you to go.
  • Following the short forest paths between the 5 lines our guides entertain you with stories of the area, probably not all true.
  • At the end of the fifth and last line, we hike the 5-10 min. back to headquarters.
  • There you can relax in the good weather, swap photos and experiences with other tour guests and perhaps enjoy a packed lunch if you bring it.
