River rafting in Iceland

River rafting is a great activity to see Iceland's beautiful countryside. While floating down these rivers, you will see plenty of impressive scenery and noteworthy locations. The tours on offer range in difficulty so there is someting to suit everyone, from first timers to seasoned rafters. 

Iceland has three rivers where it is possible to go river rafting; the Hvítá river in the south, and two rivers up north, Jökulsá Austari (e. East Glacial River) and the Vestari Jökulsá (e. West Glacial River) which runs adjacent to it.

All offer their own benefits and challenges, but share the fact that they all originate from glaciers; Hvítá from the mighty glacier Langjökull and the other two from Hofsjökull glacier.
