One of Iceland's most popular adventure activity - for a reason
River rafting on the Hvítá river right next door to Geysir in Iceland is one of the most popular adventure activitty in Iceland. The Hvítá river is a beautiful and fun river a little more than one hour from Reykjavík. Hvítá river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. On our way we pass through the magnificent Brúarhlöð canyon and 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, not to mention relaxing with a beer in our sauna after a day of adventure!
The Drumbó basecamp serves a lunch buffet every day from May - September from Noon - 1:45PM. So if you have your own car you can stop there for lunch before your afternoon rafting trip or after your morning trip and save money and time. Dinner is served after the afternoon trip at 18:00.
PLEASE NOTE: Although you don´t need to "swim" while river rafting/canoeing, we recommend that you can. The reason for that is people that can´t swim tend to panic when they are in the water. You have to be comfortable with floating in water.
