Tour Description

Enjoy beautiful landscape from a new angle! Experiencing Canyon Rafting down the Hvita river is a splendid way to spend the day.

On the Gullfoss Canyon rafting tour, you will raft down the Hvita River. It is a magnificent way to enjoy the Icelandic nature in a different way. Cruise down the great glacier river running all the way from Langjokull glacier, Iceland’s second biggest glacier. Take in the incomparable surroundings that the roaring river has created over the years, with Bruarhloð canyon as one of the highlights. The canyon has grand rock formations and portholes and you can see how the water has sculptured the breccia walls. Hvita river also feeds the grand waterfall, Gullfoss, that is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. After the raft, you can relax in the sauna at Drumbo, enjoy a grilled lamb meal in our restaurant or a drink at the bar.

This tour is for everyone that enjoys a little adventure in an outstanding landscape. Located just off the Golden Circle Rafting on Hvita river is a perfect addition to your golden circle tour.
