A 1km-long zipline, offering riders speeds of 120km/h, is set to open in Iceland later this year.

Called Mega Zipline, the project is the brainchild of Iceland-based Kambagil Ehf, which has now partnered with two attractions specialists to create the experience.

Mega Zipline will offer two 1km "flights" over the natural landscape of Svartagljufur Canyon, a popular tourist attraction near the capital city Reykjavik.

The zipline will be fitted with what Kambagil describes as the "most advanced technologies currently available in the world of ziplines".

Kambagil Ehf is working together with Skyline Ziplines on the project, whose proprietary systems will be used for safety as well as RFID monitoring.

Mega Zipline will also be the first zipline in Europe to be equipped with a next-generation video system developed by Kool Replay, which captures the highlights of a rider's experience from multiple viewpoints.

Halli Kristinsson, Kambagil Ehf's project leader, said: "Our goal was to develop an attraction in Iceland that gives visitors a dose of adrenaline and a unique view of the country's stunning neutral landscape.

"Mega Zipline will also have the highest standards of safety and a unique vide replay experience. We're working with Skyline and Kool replay, who have demonstrated a unique edge in those areas."

Construction of the attraction is now nearing completion, with the first guests set to take the flights in October 2022.
