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

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.

This is one of those great day trips! No fear, not the most challenging rafting and the guides make it fun with a bit of irreverence. Go for the afternoon start so you you can have the lamb Bbq! And drink Gull...cold cold Gull mmm. You may have time to drink enough to figure out how to pronounce the name!... More

if you have the time, this is great fun. The sauna after will warm you back up and you won't feel the cold because you are having so much fun.

I loved the rapids but the best part according to those who did it was jumping off the cliff into the river. The guides are fun but keep your eyes open or you may find yourself floating down a glacial river. It was all fun.

Where else are you going to be able to raft and cliff jump into an Artic River? Despite the wet suit my kids and I were shivering at the end of the trip. Well- run organization.
