Great fun in a fantastic setting
Aug 2019
After having done the Shotover Jet in Queenstown, NZ, we decided to try this out as it seemed similar - we weren't disappointed. The drive from Reykjavik took about an hour to the river basin area and the Arctic adventures camp is very secluded but easy to find with signs leading the way. Before starting the short (5 mins) bus journey down to the river, we were asked to sign a disclaimer and suit up. All the gear and equipment provided were excellent and ensured we stayed warm and safe during the ride. The ride does get bumpy so I would not recommend it to anyone who gets sea sick easily. The river basin lined by rocky cliffs is beautiful and happily the ride wasn't too short either, about 20-25mins if I remember correctly. We loved the speed and all the twists and turns. The place is very close to the Geysir mud pools, so make sure you stop by afterwards.
