This was my second ride down the Beast of the East and it did not disappoint. The guides were awesome-even funnier this season:) Safety is very important to the them but they have a great way of presenting the safety rules-how could you ever forget the "sexy style" of grabbing on to a safety kanoe??
The ride down the river is an action packed, adrenaline fueled experience and really something everyone visiting Iceland should do!

Rafting in East Glacial River is an amazing ride, an adrenaline rush to say the least (done it three times) but Viking Rafting take it to another level. All the guides know exactly what they're doing and they go above and beyond to make your experience something you will never forget. Very professional and very friendly each and everyone and their basecamp is without a doubt the coolest you will find.

The Best of the East trip was simply amazing! It was my first rafting experience and despite the fact that I was really scared at the beginning the professional crew of Viking rafting just made me feel content and ready for some fun. The whole trip went smoothly and we all could feel we are in good hands. We had fun, loads of action and great people around us. We also got a special treat in the middle of a canyon in a form of waffles and hot chocolate - just what you need to gain some more energy for more fun. So in a few words it was friendly, professional, fun and simply awesome!

This was my second time rafting in Jökulsá Austari and it was so much fun. I have previously tryed rafting in Hvítá. Although the weather was gloomy the first few hours, the sun broke out in the end. The guides are all so good at what they do and they really make the trip unforgettable. It was full of laughter and action packed - just the way i like it.
