River rafting on Hvítá river is fun for the whole family! The river, rated 2 out of 5 in difficulty, guarantees you a fun and soaking wet trip which will leave you smiling ear to ear for the rest of your day.

Located about an hour from Reykjavik, the Hvita river has a perfect mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping rapids. On our way we pass through the magnificent Bruarhlod canyon where participants can jump from high cliffs into the glacier water.
Experience Iceland’s wild water and glacier river swimming. Rafting down the entire length of the river will take us up to an hour / hour and a half. Following the excursion, we will close with a relaxing time in the sauna.
The Drumbo base camp serves a lunch buffet every day from May – September at 12:00-13:45. This is a great place to stop for lunch before or after your rafting trip. Dinner is served after the afternoon trip at 18:00.

Good to know before the tour:
Jeans are not suitable clothing; warm undergarment clothing including fleece/wool sweater and pants, warm socks, bathing suit and a towel are recommended.


Although you don’t need to “swim” while river rafting/canoeing, we recommend that you can. Thus, we prefer everyone on this tour to be able to swim or at least comfortable with floating in water.

Minimum Age: 12 years old for rafting the whole river and 10 years old for half of the river.

You can expect any kind of weather in Iceland, and your rafting tour might be cancelled with short notice due to weather. Your safety is our number one priority!

This tour can change depending on weather conditions, so this tour needs to be flexible. We are concerned about your safety. 

Get ready for the action and don’t forget your camera!
