When planning the trip to Iceland everything looked to good so I hastely booked the 5 day summer tour, which seemed to include most adventure activities from Reykjavik. On day two we were picked up by the lovely guides and began our trip to Hvalfjord Bay (Whale fjord Bay). If you are staying in Reykjavik and don't have a car... More

We pre booked and paid for a trip and they never turned up at the pickup point to collect us. They then lied about what time they were there so we never got to do the water rafting and half the group missed the whale watching. You can book the whale watching trips direct at the harbour and I would... More

I was impressed by how well the tour was managed and how the guides adjusted it to the people taking part. I went with a friend who can't swim who was more than a little nervous before the tour. However, the guide was reassuring and made sure she stayed on the boat the whole time. I on the other hand,... More

Our experience was titled "UnderWorld Caving" and consisted of an icy, dangerous drop into a dark, icy cave with absolutely nothing to see. No chambers, no colors from the lava, nothing but dropping water and low headspace. It started with a bathroom stop at a gas station in which our guide disappeared while while the group of twelve was left... More

We booked a tour with Arctic Adventures for mid September. The weather was cold and the water was freezing. That didn't stop our party from enjoying an amazing experience. This is a perfect trip for novices; the rapids were pretty easy going. Our guide, Robby, made our trip memorable. He encouraged us to stand on the rim of the raft... More

While this is not the most rapid-filled rafting adventure you can find, it is still not to be missed! The guides really know what they are doing and make the ride fun and adventurous. The scenery is uniquely gorgeous! We were even given the opportunity to jump off a cliff into the cold water. It was an unforgettable highlight of... More

My company did a team building trip in Iceland, we did all sort of amazing activities, but this was everyone's overwhelming favorite! Such beautiful scenery and so much fun. We weren't given much info in advance, not sure if that was because of communication between booking the events and someone in my company who was coordinating them, but we didn't... More

Prepare for a day of thrills, fun rapids and beautiful scenery. I have rafted in many places around the world and this is a top notch day trip packed with exciting Rapids and good surprises. If you get yourself to north Iceland do this adventure

A great rafting trip for me and my 12 year old daughter. The water was cold, but they give you a wet suit and let you borrow a fleece (take it, you will need it). The rapids aren't too hairy and the guides were great. A lot of fun.

we did white rafting with the golden circle tour with Arctic adventure. I highly recommend this tour to any one. Class II Rapids and 25 ft cliff jump in ice cold water, what fun it was.
