River Fun Rafting from Reykjavik

Rafting has been a favorite adventure activity amongst Icelanders since 1985, when we began running river trips from Drumbó River Base. From Gullfoss waterfall, a glorious canyon descends, creating the perfect scene for a fun rafting experience with a perfect mix of serene canyons and adrenaline-pumping waves and rapids. On this beautiful rafting journey on the Hvítá river, you raft down 7 kilometers, enjoying a view you can only experience while floating downstream in a boat. You will be making a stop at Brúarhlöð canyon, where the thrill-seekers can cliff jump into the river below if the conditions allow. This tour is suitable for most ages and abilities; all you need is the desire for adventure. We firmly believe that a journey down a fun and beautiful glacier river should be on everyone‘s bucket list.

After the excitement, you can warm up in the hot tubs and sauna, relax and maybe even enjoy a well-earned beverage.

Join us and experience the power of the river. Grab your paddle & let’s get wet!
