What You Can Expect

Day Trip from Reykjavik: River Rafting on the Hvítá River

Cliff Jumping into the Hvita River

Get a unique, watery perspective on Iceland’s dramatic landscape. Choose from a morning or midday departure, and then travel to the river base camp on a short coach drive from your Reykjavik hotel. Prepare for your ride with all the gear you need and an overview of raft safety and paddling techniques, then set out on the scenic Hvítá River. No rafting experience is necessary — just bring your sense of adventure!

With the help of your guide, navigate the river’s Class II rapids — a difficulty level suitable for novice and experienced rafters alike. On calmer stretches, give your arms a rest and soak up the serene Icelandic landscape while gliding on the currents. 

Admire the black-rock walls of Brúarhlöð canyon, and disembark for a chance to plunge from the canyon cliffs into the refreshing water below. (Don’t worry, the water is more cool than icy!)

At the end of your rafting trip, warm up and rejuvenate your muscles in the base camp sauna. After this time-honored Icelandic tradition, your 8-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your Reykjavik hotel.
