Tour description

Family Fun Rafting

The tour begins from Drumbó River Base. Please be there no later than 15 minutes before the departure. 

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

For the kids

We have created this tour for the kids so that they too can enjoy and have fun on the river. It is trendy among children. We begin a bit further down the river than the River Fun Rafting tour since the water becomes more smooth and 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 entire tour and then sail down to meet 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 sure that no family should leave Iceland without enjoying the river’s fun, playing, and splashing down the Icelandic glacial river.

What to bring

  1. Warm wool or fleece sweater and thermal underwear (pants) to wear underneath the wetsuit. Warm wool socks. This might get wet during your tour. Don’t wear cotton as it will not keep you warm when wet.
  2. Bathing suit underneath the neoprene pants on the river and for the sauna
  3. Towel
  4. Change of clothing
