rafting the Hvítá River (pronounced Kveetau) more than 27 years ago and since those early days it has been the most popular adventure
activity in Iceland. The Hvítá river is a beautiful and fun river a little more than one hour from Reykjavík. The
river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. On our way we pass through the magnificent Brúarhlöð canyon and in that stunning setting participants have the option of jumping from a cliff into the river. Who can resist going glacier river swimming in
No one should leave Iceland without experiencing the power that its rivers contain and lay eyes on the scenic canyons of Hvítá river...not to mention relaxing with a beer in our sauna after a day of adventure!
The Drumbó basecamp serves a lunch buffet every day from May - September at 12:00-13:45. So if you have your own car you can
stop there for lunch before your afternoon rafting trip or after your morning trip and save money and time. Dinner is served after the
afternoon trip at 18:00.
PLEASE NOTE: Although you don´t need to "swim" while river rafting/canoeing, we
recommend that you can. The reason for that is people that can´t swim tend to panic when
they are in the water. You have to be comfortable with floating in water.
