Rafting has been a favourite adventure activity amongst Icelanders since the year 1985 when we began running river trips from Drumbó River Base. Situated within the Golden Circle and an arm‘s length from Reyjavík, Hvítá has both exhilarating whitewater rapids and jaw-droppingly beautiful canyons. On this tour we sail through the breathtaking Brúarhlöður canyon while enjoying a view only visible from a boat. This tour is suitable for most ages and abilities, all you need is the desire for adventure. We firmly believe that a journey down a fun and beautiful glacier river should be on everyone‘s bucket list.

Afterwards to warm up, we have hot sauna waiting for you as well as showers. You can grab drink at the bar or add a Lamb BBQ to your booking for your convenience and deliciousness.

Come with us to experience the power of Iceland‘s wild glacier water!
