What To Expect
We started rafting at the Hvítá River (pronounced Kveetau) almost 25 years ago and since those early days, it has been the most popular adventure activity in Iceland. The Hvítá river is a beautiful and fun river a little more than one hour from Reykjavík. The river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. On our way we will pass through the magnificent Brúarhlöð canyon. In that stunning setting, participants have the option of jumping from a cliff into the river. Who can resist going glacier river swimming in Iceland?
No one should leave Iceland without experiencing the power that its rivers contain and lay eyes on the scenic canyons of Hvítá river, not to mention relaxing with a beer in our sauna or hot-tubs after a day of adventure!
We raft a seven kilometer stretch of the river adn in the famous Brúarhlöð canyon the rafters get to jump from a cliff into the river.
