Family Zipline Vík, South Iceland

Minimum age

8 years old




2 hours



Fun tour for the whole family. The trip in total takes around 2 hours, with guided hiking through a breathtaking river canyon and four ziplines, 30 – 240 meters (98-787 ft.). The scenery below you, named Grafargil is incredibly beautiful and you will have the birds-eye view of it as you whiz down our ziplines.

A zipline ride is a great adventure for all those who love the thrill of doing something challenging but at the same time very safe. The tour begins and ends at Norður-Vík, hostel in Vík. Departures are daily, multiple times a day.


Our Zipline is right next to the village of Vík, on Iceland’s South Coast, surrounded by beautiful hills and river canyons. It is not directly accessible by vehicle so after we meet at our base and get you dressed up in safety gear and brief your shortly we drive for 5 minutes where the hike begins.

We have around a 5-minute easy hike to reach the take-off platform for the first zip, named Big Russ. We will give you detailed safety instructions and make sure you are comfortable with what to do during the ride so you will enjoy it to the fullest and stay safe. Once you’re ready, you wait your turn, and the next thing you know, you are zipping above this breathtaking river canyon, heart pumping with excitement and having the best birds-eye view of the area you can imagine. Right after the first zip comes the second, The Gentle Giant. This one is pure joy.

Following the first two ziplines, we have another hike through the unique rock formation of Grafargil (Grave Canyon) packed with caves and other natural gems to our third zipline, Little Russ. On our way there we’ll have to cross the river in a little bit creative way so we named it Leap of Faith. Little Rush will take you over a stunning waterfall and crossing two canyons. Last but not least we have a short hike back to the base if the weather permits. The short drive-back is always an option though.
