Had an amazing afternoon on the Hvita river with Arctic Rafting, the facilities are great and the staff amazingly friendly and helpful. The base is a little remote if you are driving, so leave yourself plenty of time if travelling from Reykjavik. Definitely give it a try :)

If you're driving to this place it's quite remote and may need a sat nav or a good idea of where you're going because there are many rough roads but towards the end it is sign-posted. The staff were very funny, helpful and knowledgable about the place and the river with the sights along it. They provide all the gear you need. The rafting was very thrilling and the scenery beautiful, the rapids were a bit bigger than expected and the guide makes it a lot more enjoyable. Even though we were not able to do the jumping from the cliff sides into the river because of the conditions, it was still enjoyable and well worth the money. Would highly recommended doing this as a fun and thrilling half day activity.

My girlfriend and I participated in a rafting trip organized by Arctic Rafting.

The crew take safety very serious : We were equipped with a neoprene suit and boots, a life jacket, a splatter shirt and a helmet. Before boarding the boats there was a safety briefing and the use of paddles was explained.

The rafting trip offers some thrills with a number of rapids and an optional cliff jump but is also family oriented, engaging in water fights with other boats and playing games like keeping your balance while standing on the edge of a spinning boat.

Our guide, nicknamed Sanchez, proved very witty and took the trip to another level, assuring great team spirit and keeping everyone thoroughly entertained.

Upon our return at base camp we had the opportunity to shower and even enjoy a sauna to warm up.

Me and a friend went rafting in Hvítá and we had a great time! My friend had been rafting before but it was my first. The guide made us feel very safe. I'm definitely going again, next time I'm going to try the Beast of the East :)
