Owner description: Arctic Rafting is an Icelandic adventure and activity company with an emphasis on ecotourism and environmentally friendly river trips in the amazing Icelandic nature. We try to be sustainable in all ways, whether it is regarding our rafting operation, restaurant, equipment or anything else. Arctic Rafting was originally founded in the early 1980s when we started rafting on the Hvítá glacier river in South-Iceland. Since then we have welcomed and entertained thousands of happy customers and look forward to keeping on doing so. Now we are a part of the Arctic Adventures family wich gives us an advantage of being able to offer all kinds of great combo tours.

Had a great day on the river with arctic rafting. The team was super helpful and knowledgeable. Post raft sauna was nice to warm up. The actual trip was about 10km and took us maybe an hour to complete, had a good boat and our rafting guide was pretty fun making the trip enjoyable. Worth doing for sure, loved it!

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.
