Our experience was titled "UnderWorld Caving" and consisted of an icy, dangerous drop into a dark, icy cave with absolutely nothing to see. No chambers, no colors from the lava, nothing but dropping water and low headspace. It started with a bathroom stop at a gas station in which our guide disappeared while while the group of twelve was left... More

We booked a tour with Arctic Adventures for mid September. The weather was cold and the water was freezing. That didn't stop our party from enjoying an amazing experience. This is a perfect trip for novices; the rapids were pretty easy going. Our guide, Robby, made our trip memorable. He encouraged us to stand on the rim of the raft... More

While this is not the most rapid-filled rafting adventure you can find, it is still not to be missed! The guides really know what they are doing and make the ride fun and adventurous. The scenery is uniquely gorgeous! We were even given the opportunity to jump off a cliff into the cold water. It was an unforgettable highlight of... More

My company did a team building trip in Iceland, we did all sort of amazing activities, but this was everyone's overwhelming favorite! Such beautiful scenery and so much fun. We weren't given much info in advance, not sure if that was because of communication between booking the events and someone in my company who was coordinating them, but we didn't... More

Prepare for a day of thrills, fun rapids and beautiful scenery. I have rafted in many places around the world and this is a top notch day trip packed with exciting Rapids and good surprises. If you get yourself to north Iceland do this adventure

A great rafting trip for me and my 12 year old daughter. The water was cold, but they give you a wet suit and let you borrow a fleece (take it, you will need it). The rapids aren't too hairy and the guides were great. A lot of fun.

we did white rafting with the golden circle tour with Arctic adventure. I highly recommend this tour to any one. Class II Rapids and 25 ft cliff jump in ice cold water, what fun it was. Please don't forget GoPro or rent one'll the sight. I regret that I did not do it. Proceeded from rafting for golden circle. A... More

the rafting was amazing. the instructors really are very passionate about their jobs and the scenery is second to none. depending on the time of year the river will flow differently and as such no two experiences will be exactly the same. if you can, get the lunch or dinner afterwards. It to is amazing.

Everyone who worked here was great! I was worried about being cold but the sun was out and the wetsuits provided kept us warm. Make this part of your trip!

We had the best time on this tour, our tour guide was called Svenni and he was just brilliant! We did this on our 2nd day in Iceland and for the next five days of tours and trips we wished we had Svenni again!! Golden circle and Rafting is a must! Rafting not too wild but prepared to go into... More
