Did you know?

The first thing you need to know about your rafting trip is that you are probably going to get wet, so don’t be too surprised! The second thing is that there is nothing tropical about Iceland, and even though you are on summer vacation, your speedos will do you no good here.


  • All rafting equipment: drysuit, PFD, helmet, booties, gloves.
  • Qualified, professional raft guides and safety kayakers.
  • Transportation between our rafting base and the river.
  • Riverside refreshments.

Good to know

All clothing worn on the river should be of a material that keeps its insulating ability when wet. We highly recommend fleece, wool, and synthetic materials.

Please do not wear cotton, so not your jeans and favorite hoodie! Bring dry clothes for after the river.
