- If you do 1 activity in Iceland out of the many on offer then let this be it!!!!!

- Anup was our guide (is also the owner) and was an exceptional host/guide as were his other instructors. All very professional guides, gave clear and concise briefs regarding the experience ahead of us which was the reassurance needed, particularly for those that might have had reservations or were perhaps feeling nervous (group ranged from ages 18-65). Felt very safe, developed a positive rapore with all and felt like a real personable experience. It was clear that safety was paramount as it should be but this did not detract from all the fun to be had on the river, so much fun and very chilled out and relaxed.

- Do take note on their website of the clothing that you need to wear to remain warm on the river but rest assured that the dry suit, etc that they provide is of the highest standard and will keep you dry.

- If you manage to chill out enough and have a look around you then you will not be disappointed by the breath taking views.

- We signed up for photos of the adventure and they utilised a go pro on the raft to film/photograph me and my girlfriends adventure. A few days later Anup sent us our photos and even a video that he edited himself which he didn't have to do and far surpassed our expectations as it is clear how busy they are day in/day out.

- Essentially we had a great time on our 1st day of our road trip round Iceland and this was by far the best activity we signed up to and that was considering that we did a skidoo on the glacier and ice lagoon trip thereafter.

- Thank you Anup and Viking Rafting for a great adventure, especially for the 'green room' flip and enjoy the rest of your season.

These guys were fantastic! The trip was very safe, gear was in great condition, guides were very knowledgeable and skilled with the boats. We went on the "Beast of East" trip on the East River, which had some decent rapids and one highly technical rapid. They put us in dry suits in case we fell in, which people on the other boat did and said they stayed perfectly dry. We opted for the lunch, which was provided back at the cabin-like headquarters at the end of the four-hour trip and was hearty and plentiful. We really enjoyed the day and felt well cared for. Thanks, Viking!

We went on the 3-4 hour trip (the West Glacial River), and had a blast. Our guide was Chris and he was very friendly and helpful. The drysuits were good and kept us warm. The views on the trip were amazing, and at one point we could even get out of the boat if we wanted to (so that we could be in the glacial water). Recommended!

My mother and I decided to raft with these guys and had a blast! Mike and Anup were amazing guides from start to finish, lots of laughs, and we enjoyed every minute of it. This will be the best memory of our trip to Iceland!

WoW WoW WoW!
The Whitewater Action tour is something you DO NOT WANNA MISS!
It was packed with action, fun and excitement from minute one. Gorgeous scenery, crazy fun rapids and dry suits, that actually keep you dry!
You can feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins the entire time. Loved it to bits.
The guides are FANTASTIC, really friendly, experienced and very safety conscious. Thank you Anup, Alex, Chris, Surjan and Mike! You are all brilliant!
Can´t wait to go again someday :)
