A simply superb adventure - fun for all the family. This is a combination trip organised by Arctic Adventures - the morning is spent going to the highlights of the Golden Circle Tour (Geysers, Volcanoes, Viking parliaments, massive waterfalls...) so by the time you actually reach the river (which ends just 7km away from the amazing Gullfoss Waterfall) you are...

As avid white water rafters, we wouldn't miss rafting in such a unique place. Getting into the wet suits was a bit chilly and the bus ride out to the drop in was wild. I would say we were rafting mostly class 3s. There is a point where they had us get out of the raft and you could jump... More

Good service with pick up from hotel, facilities a bit basic , changing areas too small for the number people, rafting was good fun but felt it a bit tame , guides were friendly knowledgeable and a good laugh, enjoyable for a one off.

We are a family of 8 (14-53 years old) and had a blast on the white river! Well organized, beautiful scenery and great guides (Marcus?)! Playful but serious and highly skilled, thanks from team Isbjörn!

We really enjoyed our white water rafting experience because it was not overtaxing but was a lot of fun with enthusiastic guides. We even got to jump of a small cliff which was really exciting for us. We would recommend this experience to anyone who was looking to doing something different in Iceland,

Great fun, but not a challenging river. Only two rapids that provided a challenging ride. But, the views were worth it, as well as the narrative by our rafting guide. They provide all of the gear to make it enjoyable.

We did the tour on Hvítá River. We've been rafting in many countries with our kids and were a little bit disappointed about this one. The trip is relatively short and considering Icelands beauty we had higher expectations on the landscape of the river. The most thrilling thing was the 8m jump in the beginning. The river itself is most... More

We wanted to experience Arctic rafting, so this was our chance. Honestly the entire experience was well run, however the river-ride was not all that thrilling. I have been rafting before in West Virginia, and I found that that river had much more "white water" than this one. Both trips were for beginner rapids. However, the entire experience was quite...

Well, I fell out of the boat - so that was a memorable experience! But the river was gorgeous. I will have to just remember it in my mind.
