Canoing is the perfect activity if you are looking for a hands on adventure out in the Icelandic nature. The canoes are inflated and self bailing, meaning that they do not fill with water and are easy to maneuver. Two people sit together in the canoe and steer it, meanwhile a guide in a kayak makes sure everything is safe and sound. We paddle down the Hvítá river which has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids.

We travel for 7 kilometers and at one point participants get to jump from a cliff into the river. We only recommend this trip to those looking for action and are in good physical condition. The River Ride is a great action trip, specially for those with some experience in rafting. Guaranteed departures: Everyday at 12:30 from Reykjavik and 14:00 from Drumbo base camp. Available from the 1st of June to the 1st of September.

Note: Canoing is very often booked for groups where some have never rafted before and others have rafted often, i.e. some persons want adrenaline but others a scenic ride. In those cases, a part of the group can raft and the another part can canoe the same route down Hvítá river.
