What to bring: The first thing you need to know about our trip is that we give you a dry suit. This incredible piece of gear should keep you 95% dry during your rafting trip, but they will NOT keep you warm! There is nothing tropical about our river or environment. The water we will be rafting on is fed directly by a Glacier, so it’s very cold. The key to being happy on the river is to stay warm. We strongly encourage you to bring multiple layers; tops, bottoms, and socks to keep you feeling comfortable while rafting. If you bring the correct clothing, you won’t be cold at all.
Please trust us when we say that the river can be the worst of all thieves, and that any valuables you bring with you on the raft (cameras, sunglasses, laptops, etc.), are likely to disappear to the bottom of the rapids when you are fully distracted and least expecting it. Trust us, we’ve learned our lesson too many times, and we’ll do our very best to avoid saying “I told you so”! Hide your valuables somewhere that you can find them safe and dry after your trip.
This is an unforgettable rafting adventure in Iceland. Featuring steaming riverside hot springs and magnificent canyon landscapes, this gentle rafting tour offers everyone an opportunity to pick up a paddle and explore Iceland’s stunning river wilderness. As you negotiate the gentle rapids through the twists and bends of this towering gorge, enjoy the opportunity to sample some riverside hot cocoa from nature’s kettle. You may even find yourself in a friendly water fight, bathing in the invigorating glacial runoff, or simply kicking back and letting your cares drift away with the meandering waters!
If your idea of rafting is to hit big waves and feed your inner adrenaline junkie, this is not where that happens. If you’re after action and more excitement, my crazy friend, then our whitewater river rafting tour is probably what you’re looking for.
The Rafting base for this tour is located at Hafgrímsstaðir. Hafgrímsstaðir is located on Road 752, 15 kilometers from its junction with the Ring Road (Road 1) at the west end of Varmahlíð. Follow Road 752 up the valley for about 10-15 minutes until you see us on the left-hand side of the road!
