Horse Riding & Rafting


This combination day adventure includes river rafting on Hvítá River & horse riding on the Icelandic horse.

The trip starts at the farm Vellir in Ölfus where the first half of the day is spent horse riding. This trip will help to give you a taste of Icelandic nature and the opportunity to get to know the unique and beautiful Icelandic horse.  You will be provided with all the necessary equipment and a friendly and suitable horse to fits your skills.  At Hotel Eldhestar you are served a refreshing fish soup.

After lunch you will head to Drumbo Basecamp to begin your river rafting on Iceland´s most popular river, Hvítá.  The river has a perfect balance of serene canyons, adrenaline pumping waves and rapids.  You will raft for 7 kilometers and at one point you will get the exciting opportunity to jump from a cliff into the river.  No one should leave Iceland without experiencing the power of its rivers and the scenic canyons of Brúarhlöð in Hvítá are something you will never forget.

This truly is the ultimate family activity trip and an excellent way to explore the countryside of Iceland.
