Departing from Hafgrímsstaðir in the North we head inland along the Sprengisandur route – heading for the source of the East Glacier River (Jökulsá-Austari) at the root of Hofsjökull glacier. Once in the interior, far from the routine of the everyday life, we arrive at Laugarfell where we will be spending the night in highland cabins. After a nice meal, we have a chance to soak in some natural hot pools before turning in. On day two, we start rafting on the only grade 4+ river in Iceland, East Glacier River. All rafters get a thorough safety briefing with one our certified rafting guide before we take off. The fist rafting day starts slowly but after an hour or so, the business gets serious – Splashing, rapids, fun, spraying, spatter, paddle, smiles! We take a short break from the action and go ashore to have lunch, but otherwise, we stay on the river until we reach our accommodation place at Hildarsel.
Day three begins relatively slow rafting down Austurdalur Valley, but before long we will be in a stunning canyon rafting some amazing rapids. The East Glacier River gorge is where some of Iceland’s most spectacular whitewater can be found.
After two action-packed, adrenaline rushing day’s on the river we have the chance to relax in the hot tubs at Hafgrímsstaðir and enjoy a delicious bbq dinner.
