The Wonderful West tour offers whitewater rapids without the higher levels of danger seen in other rafting tours, but is still a lot of fun! In addition to river rafting, you'll also get to sample some local hot chocolate made in the surrounding hot springs.

What to expect?

On this West Glacial River trip, fun and scenery swirl around you to deliver an unforgettable rafting adventure in Iceland! Featuring steaming riverside hot springs and magnificent canyon landscapes, this gentle rafting tour offers everyone from the novice rafter to the whole family an opportunity to pick up a paddle and explore Iceland's stunning river wilderness.

As you negotiate the gentle rapids through the twists and bends of this towering gorge, enjoy the opportunity to sample some riverside hot cocoa from nature’s natural kettle! You may well find yourself in a friendly water fight, bathing in the invigorating glacial runoff, or simply kicking back and letting your troubles drift away with the meandering waters!
