No one should leave Iceland without experiencing its powerful rivers. The rafting tours range from fun family-friendly trips to action packed rafting madness or even multi-day tours; our rives can cater to anyone!
The most popular rafting trip is also the one closest to capital city Reykjavík, on Hvítá river only a little over an hour away.
Hvítá is also located only 15 kilometers from Geysir & Gullfoss of the golden circle tour so it's easy to combine sightseeing with your daily dose of excitement. The river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping rapids, this tour is suitable for anyone.
If you're traveling up North we recommend a scenic and fun family rafting tour on the Vestari Jökulsá river, through its towering canyon. You may well have the opportunity to jump off a cliff into the river, get caught up in a friendly water fight, or simply kick back and allow the scenery to blow you away as you float down the gorge.
Choose pure fun or add some adrenaline to the mix, it's up to you!
But for those with rafting experience or a strong spirit of adventure we recommend the legendary action packed rafting trip on the class 4+ Austari Jökulsá glacier river in North Iceland.
The tour is a Lonely Planet favourite and you will easily see why, the East glacier river simply provides the ultimate river rafting experience in Iceland!
This trip is also availble in a 3 day rafting package between mountain huts, hot springs and incredible highland surroundings. This is your once in a lifetime chance to travel through some of the most remote and stunning otherwise inaccessible areas in Iceland while facing your 3-day rafting challenge!
