This was the first time I'd ever done white water rafting and I loved it. It was the perfect grade for my 7 year old who had a fantastic time. The team who took us out three boats of people were fantastic and made it fun for all of us, whether that was swimming down the river or cliff jumping optional!!!!, through to the good natured ribbing of people on the boats. I'd highly recommend it

This was an excellent trip for our kids 10 and 12 who are novices at whitewater. The guides did a great job explaining safety rules, the equipment and how a boat works together to go through rapids. We had a great time drinking hot chocolate made from fresh volcanic spring water and jumping off of a cliff into ice cold glacier water thanks to the dry suits. My kids loved the day and were doing things I never expected like jumping off a cliff! Thanks Phil and the rest of the team for making our day safe and fun!!!

It was a long drive from Reykjavik but well worth it! We all had a brilliant time and the guides were superb. Once our youngest is a bit older we would definitely try another rafting trip on a bigger river. Well done guys! John, Michael and Sousane
