River Rafting in Hvita


River Rafting in a glacial Icelandic river

A short distance from Reykjavik, the river Hvita flows from the glacier Langjokull towards the south and creates the majestic waterfall Gullfoss.

The river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. No one should leave Iceland without embracing a river rafting adventure and experiencing the true power of nature in ts rawest form!

Along the journey, we raft through the scenic Bruarhlod canyon and in that stunning setting participants have the option of jumping from a high cliff into the river below.

At the end of the tour, return to the base camp to relax in the sauna and enjoy the scenery.
