River Rafting Iceland – The trip

Once we are all changed we will then drive you into the East Valley to our rafting put in. Our trip leader will give a safety brief with all of the relative safety information needed to get the most out of your trip.

We take to the river rafting 16 km through the East Glacial canyon. We will tackle rapids such as Alarm Clock, Commitment, Screaming Lady and of course the famous Green Room. Depending on the water levels we will also stop for some cliff jumping for those that feel they need a little more excitement. The bus will meet us at the takeout where steaming bowls of hot soup are waiting. After a short 20 minute rides back to the base you can unwind in our hot tubs.
