We booked the easy rafting tour for our family of 4 and had a great time. The tourist season was quiet due to covid so we were the only ones on the boat with two guides and they were both really friendly, fun and instructive. The ride was not too challenging but it was fun and enjoyable. In a bumpy section of the river, our youngest son fell in the water and one of the guides was incredibly alert and immediately jumped in to "rescue" him - that was quiet impressive, it took the guide a second to work out what was going on and how to handle what could have been a tricky situation. I thought this was a great sign of how experienced and professional the guides were. The hot cocoa stop was fun and we went through some stunning landscape. The company was also flexible and helpful after we had to delay our visit due to unforeseen events and we were able to change the day of our trip. All in all a great experience with great people!

We went kayaking down Svartá river for your girls birthday, she just turned 8. She started the trip out in tow but about halfway down the river she wanted to try for herself and finished the tour kayaking on her own. Our five year old boy was in tow the whole time and loved it. He wants to go again as soon as possible. It was a great experience for the whole family and we will most definitely try some of the other tours :)

My boyfriend and I booked the easy river rafting and had an amazing trip! We were the only participants that day so we were accompanied by 2 guides (plus one extra in a kayak in front of us for safety). The guides (from Nepal) were very friendly, very experienced and really did their best to give us a fun rafting time. We would really recommend this activity with Bakkaflöt!

Great trip with our two early 20s young adult kids. Exciting and fun. Was not as cold as I was afraid it would be. Nepalese guides were excellent and took care of everyone. All were invested in all having a great time. I was concerned that they would not have equipment to fit me because I am a larger size. They did. Lamb soup and hot tubs were an excellent way to finish the trip.
