Get your adrenaline pumping on a thrilling and beautiful ride down the Gullfoss river going through a stunning canyon and extraordinary landscape. Our expert guides will make sure you have the best experience, before taking your taste buds for a whole new trip of their own. Iceland is known for it’s delicious beer and here is your chance to see why!
The breathtakingly beautiful Gullfoss waterfall is getting to be world famous for being powerful and scenic. It flows through a great canyon filled with glacier water and mesmerizing landscape. One of the absolute best ways to explore the canyon is by river rafting through it. This activity is somewhat a local sport in Iceland as groups of friends and family seek the activity to celebrate or to enjoy an exciting adventure day together.
The tour starts from Drumbó, a charming farm near the Golden Circle route. There you will be handed all the proper gear and our expert guides will go through how to use the equipment and give you helpful tips for the experience ahead. Next, we will all join in an old school bus which the Arctic team renovated after the US army left their base in Keflavík, 2006. We will drive down to the Hvítá river where a safety briefing is held before the boats are dragged into the river. Now the real excitement starts as we make our way through the canyon, splashing and paddling in an extraordinary landscape. This experience is one for the books!
After the tour, we will return to the Drumbó base again for a quick shower and sauna (optional) before getting a history lesson in Iceland beer and beer culture. By then your mouth will definitely be all watery and longing for a nice cold beer and that’s when we bring in the actual Icelandic beer tasting; a platter of 4 local favorites for you to enjoy.
If you wish to have something nice to eat with the tasty beers we recommend adding the lamb BBQ extra. You really can’t go more Iceland local than this!
