Take a thrilling whitewater rafting trip in Iceland by booking this tour on the Hvita River. Whether you are an experienced rafter or a complete novice, this is the perfect voyage for those traveling around the Golden Circle looking for an adventure.

You’ll start this unforgettable experience when you reach the base camp of Drumnboddstadir, just downriver from the iconic waterfall of Gullfoss. You’ll be equipped in life jackets, helmets, wetsuits, and oars, then escorted to the river edge by bus along a bumpy gravel track. Your guides will brief you on operating the rafts before letting you board them and leading you out into a spectacular valley.  

Following the current of the Hvita, you will paddle through breathtaking scenery with geological marvels, rolling countryside, and mountain views. Though all abilities are welcomed on this tour, the course often gets a little choppy, making the experience as exciting as it is serene.

When you reach the canyon of Bruarhlod, renowned for its unique columns of breccia, you will bank your raft and have the opportunity to climb and jump from the cliffs! The water is refreshingly cool, and the experience fantastic for thrill-seekers.

The second-largest glacier in the country, Langjokull,  fuels both the Hvita river and Gullfoss, which provides the water with a milky appearance and the trip with an added level of intrigue.

After sixty to ninety minutes of fun, you’ll reach the end of your course and be bussed back to basecamp. You are welcome to shower and use the lovely sauna here for free and purchase a drink at the bar or food from the Icelandic lamb barbecue. The relaxed, welcoming vibe promises to make this an equally enjoyable part of the tour.

Embark on a thrilling summer adventure rafting along the Hvita river in Iceland! Check availability by choosing a date.
