Family Rafting

The West Glacial River

Even though we call this a "family" trip, it's not just for grandpa and the little guys! This is a fun and relatively gentle trip that is suitable for everybody out there, but if your idea of rafting is to hit big waves and feed your inner adrenaline junkie, this is not where that happens. If you're after action and more excitement, my crazy friend, then our WHITEWATER ACTION trip is probably what you're looking for!

On this West Glacial River trip, fun and scenery swirl around you to deliver an unforgettable rafting adventure in Iceland! Featuring steaming riverside hot springs and magnificent canyon landscapes, this gentle rafting tour offers everyone from the novice rafter to the whole family an opportunity to pick up a paddle and explore Iceland's stunning river wilderness. As you negotiate the gentle rapids through the twists and bends of this towering gorge, enjoy the opportunity to sample some riverside hot cocoa from nature’s kettle! You may even find yourself in a friendly water fight, bathing in the invigorating glacial runoff, or simply kicking back and letting your cares drift away with the meandering waters!

What do they say?

We went rafting with the whole family including my son who was 7. It was a great first experience for him and the guides had been good saying it should be okay to take him if there had been no excessive rain fall. So we took a class 2 rapids trip and it was exciting and a great introduction for my son and wife. Timothy B Lucerne, Switzerland
A friend talked me into doing the Beast of the East rafting day, it's not something I'd usually do but I absolutely loved it. The guides we had were all so professional and chilled out, explained everything really well and made the whole day really enjoyable. Fred was the guide on our boat and was awesome. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Iceland.Rachael, Melbourne
