West Glacial River Rafting Tour from Varmahlíð, North Iceland

Summary

All of our trips start and end from our onsite boathouse. Our friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers. We provide wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets and rafting booties. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm long sleeve fleece and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humour and adventure! We will then take a 20 minute drive towards the West Glacial river. Your trip leader will give a full safety brief. You will then be divided into crews and assigned a boat and most of all your guide. Once on the river we will enter the canyon with its high walls and amazing geology. Along the way we may stop for a unique hot chocolate and for a spot of cliff jumping for the brave ones. The bus will be waiting at the takeout for the short drive back to the base where the hot pools await.
