Why we love this tour
Started with a Hvítá River rafting A tour to Geysir area! Free pickup and drop off from Reykjavik Small group travel
The adventure starts with a transfer to our rafting base camp, pick up starts at 8:00 am from your Reykjavík accommodation. Please note, that the pick up can take up to 30 min.
We will then take off to a great 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 before continuing on the road.
Our first stop on the famous Golden Circle is the geothermal area, Geysir, 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. Next, we stroll down to 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. Our last stop of the day is the Þingvellir National Park. 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.
