Description de l'activité

Grab a paddle and raft along northern Iceland's wild West Glacial River for an afternoon full of action and fun for the entire family. 

From the novice rafter to the whole family, this gentle whitewater rafting experience features bubbling hot springs and mind-blowing scenery you do not want to miss. Explore the Icelandic wilderness from the depths of the West Glacial river's canyon with this unique rafting experience. 

This afternoon tour will deliver unforgettable beauty! You will meet your expert guide at the rafting base in Hafgrímsstaðir where the journey begins. Here you will get prepared, listen to a safety briefing, and get dressed in dry suits. A rafting bus will take you on a short drive to the put-in point for the raft at the West Glacial River. Now it's time to paddle! As you push off from the river bank, you will head for a 90 minute, 10 km descent on gentle rapids. Along the way, you can enjoy a steaming cup of hot cocoa made directly with natural hot water from a riverside hot spring! If the conditions are favorable, get an extra rush by jumping from one of the cliffs and swimming in bubbling glacial waters.
