Family River Rafting in North Iceland
Enjoy a beautiful river rafting trip through the magnificent West Glacial canyon in North Iceland, Skagafjörður. This trip is ideal for those who want to enjoy a relaxing trip and take in some breathtaking scenery.
- White water rafting, level: easy
- Wonderful scenery
The West Glacial River is classified level 2-3. Friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers (wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets and rafting booties) All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm long sleeve fleece and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humour and adventure 🙂
From the meeting point about 12 km away from Varmahlid, you will then take a 20 minute drive towards the West Glacial river. At the rafting start your trip leader will give a full safety brief. Once on the river we will enter the canyon with its high walls and amazing geology. Along the way we may stop for a unique hot chocolate and for a spot of cliff jumping for the brave ones. The bus will be waiting at the takeout for the short drive back to the base where you can warm up and relax in one of our hot pots. Trip time is ca. 3 hours.
