River Fun - Gullfoss Canyon RaftingTour ID: 269
CategoryMeet on Location, Adventure, Golden Circle
Join us to experience an adrenaline rush to spice up your holiday! Rafting down the Hvítá river is an amazing way to spend the day.
We started rafting the Hvítá River approx. 30 years ago and since then it has been the most popular adventure activities in Iceland. Located about an hour from Reykjavík, the Hvítá river has a perfect mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping rapids. On our way we pass through the magnificent Brúarhlöð canyon where participants can jump from high cliffs into the glacier waters.
Experience Iceland's wild water and glacier river. Rafting down the entire length of the river will take us up to an hour or hour and a half. Following the excursion, we will close with a relaxing time in the sauna. The Drumbó base camp serves a traditional lamb bbq buffet every day from May - September at 12:30 and 17:30. This is a great place to stop for lunch or early dinner before or after your rafting trip (you can add this to your trip as an extra).
PLEASE NOTE: 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.
