The rapids were only a category 2 but the view was worth it. You will find yourself floating through canyons carved out of the lava over thousands of years of water flowing from glaciers. It is a site to see.

Had a great time. The gear is all provided, explanantions clear and concise. We will defenetly go again next year. Then we will ask to... More

Makes you want to go again and again. Comfortable afterwards, specially if you are cold, in the sauna and the hot tubs!

We booked with Allrahanda - Iceland Excursions and really enjoyed our River Fun afternoon! It's an easy river; the rapids are not intense, so this is not the trip for you if you're looking for level 4 or 5 rapids. If you want a fun and easy trip down a river with absolutely beautiful views, then here you go. We... More

This is a must! Even if it is a little cold it is too much fun. The guides are really well prepared, they explain and teach you how to row, how to swim safely in an arctic river and so on. The river is not extremely dangerous, so if you fell into the water it is pretty easy to get... More

Tour led by arctic adventures. All attire provided and facilities spotless. Although only class 2 the guides filled the time with stories and games for all within guaranteed to get you wet or dunked in the river. Afterwards is a healthy lunch and sauna and hot tub! Very fond memories -

On our trip to Iceland, I convinced my new wife to come wite water rafting. Neither of us had done it before and I thought it would be a great way to get out and see some neat scenery. We booked our trip and we were off. Our particular trip consisted of only three people plus the guide. The Hvita... More
