Family Fun Rafting - From Reykjavik

Meet on location Family River Fun Rafting!

River Rafting on the lower section of Hvítá River offering a more playful and serene trip for the little ones!

Difficulty: 1/5 very easy

Trip details: This tour is also available with pick up from Reykjavík.

Time of Departure from Drumbó River Base: 11:00 and 15:00. Please arrive at Drumbó 15 minutes before departure.

The Family River Fun Rafting sets sails from the strikingly beautiful Brúarhlöður canyon. The Hvítá river is a glacier river, flowing from Langjökull glacier and it is the river that feeds into the amazing Gullfoss waterfall. The river from Brúarhlöður has smooth fun waves for rafting while being situated in a wonderful place. On this rafting journey we sail down 4 kilometres, rafting down friendly rapids and playing games while admiring a view from a whole different perspective.

We have created this tour for the kids, so that they too can enjoy and have fun on the river. It is very popular among the children. We begin a bit further down the river than the main tour, the River Fun Rafting tour does, since the water becomes more smooth and more child-friendly. If any grown-ups in the group prefer to join in on the whole river trip, the River Fun Rafting, then you are in luck. It is possible to book the whole tour, and then sail down to meet up with the rest of the family or group at Brúarhlöður.

We provide you with a wetsuit to make the experience pleasing and a life-jacket to ensure everyone is afloat. There is no need for a previous rafting experience and the tour is suitable for most ages and abilities.

Rafting down Hvítá is one of the best ways to spend any day, and we are certain that no family should leave Iceland without enjoying the fun that the river gives us, playing and splashing down an Icelandic glacial river.

You can be sure, it's fun for the whole family!
