Operation of rafting the Hvítá River (pronounced Kveetau) began more than 35 years ago and since then it has been the most popular adventure activity in Iceland.The Hvítá river is located about 90 minutes from Reykjavík and has the perfect mix of scenic canyons and adrenaline pumping rapids. After most definitely getting wet in some fun rapids, you will be amazed as we float through the famous Brúarhlöđur canyon.
