River Rafting Extreme in North Iceland
Are you ready for a real outdoor adventure? The East Glacial river has a reputation of being one of the most exciting rivers in Europe. It’s time to hook in and hold on.
- Adventurous white water rafting, classified 4+ rapids
- Great scenery
- Fun and adrenaline
You will raft on a part of the river that is classified as 4+ rapids. Friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment (wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets and rafting booties) and information needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm sweater or fleece and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humour and adventure!
From the meeting point about 12 km outside of Varmahlid we will then drive you to 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 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 take out where steaming bowls of hot soup are waiting. After a short 20 minute ride back to the base you can qarm up and unwind in one of our hot pots.
