Know More about this tour

Leave Reykjavik by an air-conditioned vehicle, relax in your seat as you set out on your full day adventure tour, listen to entertaining stories about Icelands history and spectacular landscapes from your informative guide as you head towards Drumboddsstadir where the rafting base is located.

Upon arrival you will meet your certified rafting guides and be provided with all of the necessary rafting gear. Then, after a safety briefing, head out on an inflatable raft with a professional guide. Paddle along the fast flowing river past untouched coubtryside, gliding along calm waters and bumping over rapids and at one point during your trip, dare to jump from a cliff into the water!

After your river rafting adventure, you can use the shower and sauna facilities before enjoying your lunch (own expense) at the rafting base camp. Once ready,return to your air-conditioned vehicle and accompanied by your guide, take the popular Golden Circle route for an afternoon sightseeing.

Head through rugged landscapes to Geysir geothermal region, an area of bubbling pools, steam vents and waterspouts that gave the word geyser to the world. Follow the trails around the gurgling springs and ponds, and catch the sight of the spouting geysers bursting water up to 25 meters high.

Continue to the golden waterfall of Gullfoss, one of Icelands most visited attractions. Savor the views of the breathtaking falls, where the waters gush over two tiers of lava rock, and if yourre lucky, cath sight of the rainbow the can form in the mists.

Lastly, visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Thingvellir National Park, renowned as the site of Icelands 10th-century parliament assemblies. Thingvellir is rich of geological wonders and Icelandic history and holds many natural gems, such as Silfra fissure where frequent divers and snorkelers can be found exploring the wonders of the fissure. It is also the location where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are drifting apart. Make sure to view the awesome tectonic rift and snap photos of this natural phenomena before returning back to Reykjavik where your tour finishes.
