We started offering this ever-popular Iceland day tour rafting the Hvítá River (pronounced Kveetau) almost 25 years ago. The Hvítá River is a stunning and enjoyable river a little more than one hour from Reykjavík, with something for everyone, from serene canyons to adrenaline-pumping waves and rapids. We raft a 7-kilometre stretch of the river, passing through the magnificent Brúarhlöđ canyon. In this striking setting, you won’t be able to resist the option of jumping from a cliff into the river and going glacier river swimming.
