What to expect?

  • This is like your favorite Disney World ride, but without a seatbelt! And just like that ride, you don't need any previous rafting experience to discover for yourself why the East Glacial River has become Iceland's signature whitewater rafting trip. The reason we're experienced professionals is so that you don't have to be, but if you're scared of getting wet and don't enjoy the excitement, this is definitely not the trip for you. However, we're pretty confident that you'll still love our FAMILY RAFTING trip!

  • The East Glacial River gorge (Jökulsá-Austari) is the setting for our most action-packed and exciting rafting day tour. With spectacular deep canyon scenery and relentless heart-pumping whitewater, the East has been consistently rated one of Europe’s best rafting rivers and topped popular guide books’ lists of "must-do's" in Iceland. One of the most remote single- day rafting trips on the planet, this whitewater adventure delivers an unforgettable journey into the untamed beauty of Iceland’s river wilderness and a dose of adrenaline strong enough to satisfy the most powerful of cravings.

What is included?


  • All rafting equipment: drysuit, PFD, helmet, booties, gloves
  • Qualified, professional raft guides and safety kayakers
  • Transportation between our rafting base and the river
  • Riverside refreshments (a tasty homemade surprise!)
  • Iceland's ultimate rafting experience!

What do I need to bring?

  • Thermal underwear/base layers
  • Warm fleece top/wool sweater
  • Fleece pants / extra long johns
  • Thick wool socks/hiking socks (at least 1 pair)
  • AVOID COTTON. As you are paddling down the river you are going to sweat. When cotton gets wet, it makes you cold.
  • Fleece, wool, and synthetics are the best materials to wear because when they get wet, they keep your body warm. If you only have cotton, we can still make it work!
  • Dry clothes for after the river
  • Any necessary medications (asthma inhalers, etc.)
  • Waterproof camera (optional)

Is this experience for me?

  • Most people can participate
  • Not recommended for people who fear huge waves
