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.

the rafting was amazing. the instructors really are very passionate about their jobs and the scenery is second to none. depending on the time of year the river will flow differently and as such no two experiences will be exactly the same. if you can, get the lunch or dinner afterwards. It to is amazing.

Everyone who worked here was great! I was worried about being cold but the sun was out and the wetsuits provided kept us warm. Make this part of your trip!

We had the best time on this tour, our tour guide was called Svenni and he was just brilliant! We did this on our 2nd day in Iceland and for the next five days of tours and trips we wished we had Svenni again!! Golden circle and Rafting is a must! Rafting not too wild but prepared to go into the water! This was definitely one of our best days in Iceland! Ravi our raft guide was awesome too!!! Thank you for making the trip so memorable

A white-knuckle ride; and that was just on the bus to get to the river!

This was a fantastic day out to take our 3 teenage boys for some much-needed adrenaline rush! Our rafting guide - 'Swanny' was the perfect host. I never knew so much of the Hvita river was inspiration for Hollywood :-).

It's a must to have a 'splash war' on the river, and the lamb BBQ steaks at the end of the day were the best meal we had in Iceland. Highly recommended.

This was one of the highlights of my trip. Everyone working for the company was lovey and made the experience so enjoyable.
