Jet boat adventure on Hvítá River
Prepare yourself for breathtaking excitement and visually stunning landscapes!
The trip begins in a shallow part of the Hvita river where the water is flat and calm, and provides you the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the jet boat.
Further up stream, the river becomes more narrow and basalt rocks begin to rise above you as the expert river jet driver guides you on an intense and bumpy journey through the steep canyons and white water rapids. Then deeper into the canyon the river goes calm again and becomes more narrow, only 5 meters from wall to wall in some areas. The jet boat speeds up and your river jet driver maneuvers the boat so close to the basalt canyon walls that you feel like you can reach out and touch it. The graceful maneuvering of the boat, intense speed and heart stopping 360 degree turns are sure to please even the wildest of thrill seekers. Brace yourself, this trip is not for the faint of heart!
