Wear your drysuit and embrace yourself with this whitewater rafting tour under the midnight sun from Fludir. Anyone who enjoys adrenaline-pumping adventures will love this midnight sun tour while facing the strong waters of the Hvita river. 

This adventure tour begins at your tour operator's rafting base in Fludir in South Iceland. It is also here where you'll meet one of your guides, who will go over the basics and safety guidelines of water rafting. 

The tour package includes the necessary whitewater rafting equipment, such as a dry suit, a life jacket, a helmet, gloves, and shoes. 

On your part, make sure to wear warm clothes, a base layer under a wool or fleece layer, and a pair of warm hiking socks. Make sure that these are not made from cotton, as they can absorb a lot of moisture, which is not good for your body. You should also bring a dry set of clothes to change into after your rafting trip.

You'll ride a vehicle from the base in Fludir to the Hvita river, where you'll begin your rafting adventure. Note that this tour does not require previous whitewater rafting experience. Your local expert guides will be there to teach you and ensure you safely make it through your rafting adventure. 

After learning everything you need about whitewater rafting, you'll start your adventure at the Hvita river, near the Golden Circle. 

The tour sets off during the midnight sun, a natural phenomenon that only occurs during summer in some parts of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. During the midnight sun in Iceland, the days are longer and are still around even at midnight. This rafting tour in Iceland will allow you to experience this unique phenomenon in a more exciting way. 

During the tour, you'll face the rushing waters of Hvita. However, there will also be occasional peaceful sections where you can admire some sightseeing spots near the river. 

One of the best views you'll see during this summer tour is the Bruarhlod Canyon, famous for its towering stone sculptures. According to the local folklore, two of the canyon's pillars are trolls who became stone after exposure to the sun. The canyon's dark walls and stone towers create a striking view as the milky white water of the river dramatically crashes on it. 

After some time riding the raft, you'll then ride down the river toward the landing site. After landing, you'll get escorted back to the base, where your adventure in Iceland's Hvita river ends. 

Embark on a summer in Iceland adventure with this unforgettable whitewater rafting tour, and experience the Hvita river at high speed under the midnight sun. Check availability now by choosing a date.
