Imagine sailing down a glacier river, surrounded by a magnificent landscape. On our Gullfoss Canyon Rafting tour, we will do just that. We head out from our base camp in Drumbó after we gear up and get a safety briefing from our skilled rafting guides. With an oar in hand, we are driven down to the riverside where we get the final instructions before we set sail down the river. Hvítá river has it’s origin in Langjökull, Europe’s 2nd largest glacier, and rushes from there down the famous Gullfoss waterfall and into Brúarhlöð canyon. The canyon is made from the powerful glacier river carving its way into the rocks over the centuries, leaving us a stunning gorge and rock formations that can best be enjoyed from the water.

After the paddling, we go back to the base camp where a warm sauna awaits us. Here you also have the possibility to enjoy a delicious grilled lamb in our restaurant*.

*It is a good idea to book your meal when you book your rafting.

Trip advisor reviews

Great Experience!

Everyone who worked here was great! I was worried about being cold but the sun was out and the wetsuits provided kept us warm. Make this part of your trip!

Brilliant fun and great instructors

the rafting was amazing. the instructors really are very passionate about their jobs and the scenery is second to none. depending on the time of year the river will flow differently and as such no two experiences will be exactly the same. if you can, get the lunch or dinner afterwards. It to is amazing.

Awesome fun and laughs on the Hvita river

This was a fantastic day out to take our 3 teenage boys for some much-needed adrenaline rush! The lamb BBQ steaks at the end of the day were the best meal we had in Iceland. Highly recommended.
