Why we love this tour
Rafting down Gullfoss canyon A tour to Golden Circle area! Free pickup and drop off from Reykjavik Only available in Summer! (From 15th May to 15th September)
We will go for a scenic and fun rafting tour down the Gullfoss Canyon. The river has a perfectly balanced mix of beautiful, steep canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. On our way, we pass through the magnificent Brúarhlöð (Bruarhlod) canyon where participants have the option of jumping from a cliff into the river. Afterward, we offer a nice hot shower and sauna in the rafting base.
The Golden Circle has more stops than just our famous rafting base including Geysir geothermal area , home of the original erupting “geyser” and his little brother Strokkur. Catch the sight of superheated water bursting from the ground up to 25 meters high. We will also stop at Gullfoss, the undisputed queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Gullfoss, “the Golden Waterfall”, is an amazing sight. The water flows 32 meters down three steps of lava rocks with breathtaking power and grandeur. Þingvellir National Park is a national treasure where we make one of our stops. Here lies the biggest natural lake in Iceland. Þingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site and the birthplace of Alþingi, the oldest existing parliament in the world founded by the Vikings more than a thousand years ago. Þingvellir is also a place of many geological wonders as it lies in the tectonic rift valley between America and Europe. It is completely surrounded by beautiful volcanoes created from the ongoing tectonic drift.
