Description de l'activité
Enjoy a trip through the magnificent West Glacial canyon. This trip is ideal for those who want to enjoy a relaxing trip and take in some breath-taking scenery.
For family rafting the west is the best. The West Glacial River is classed 2-3 (class 1: easy to class 5: very demanding).
All of the trips start and end from the onsite boathouse. The friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers. You’ll be given wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets and rafting booties. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm long sleeve fleece and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humour and adventure!
You’ll then take a 20 minute drive towards the West Glacial River. At the rafting spot your trip leader will give a full safety briefing. You will then be divided into crews and assigned a boat and of course a guide. Once on the river you will enter the canyon with its high walls and amazing geology. Along the way you may stop for a delicious hot chocolate and a spot of cliff jumping for the brave ones. The bus will be waiting to take you back to the base where the hot pools await.

Rafting is a weather dependent sport. Bakkaflöt reserves the right to cancel or change any trips depending on the weather conditions. They also have the right to cancel the trip for people who put themselves and others at danger during or before a trip.
Rafting takes place on glacial rivers where the water is cold all year around. Once you get cold it is very hard to get you warm again. By bringing the correct thermal clothing you reduce the possibilities of becoming cold. Please do not bring any cotton products with you to wear on the river. If you are too warm on the river there are many creative ways to cool you down, for example cliff jumping.
