Arctic Rafting

Drumboddsstaðir, 806 Selfoss

From Gullfoss waterfall, a glorious canyon descends down, creating the perfect scenario for a fun rafting experience. The Hvítá river originates from Langjökull glacier and has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. On this beautiful rafting journey you raft down 7 kilometers, enjoying a view you can only experience while floating downstream in a boat. You will be making a stop at Brúarhlöð canyon where the thrill-seekers can cliff jump into the river below if the conditions allow.

You will be outfitted in a wetsuit to make the experience enjoyable and a life-jacket to keep you afloat. Hvítá River is a class 2 river which means that there is plenty of fun and excitement but no previous rafting experience is required. This rafting trip is for everyone that fancies a little adventure and is suitable for most ages and abilities. 

Rafting down Hvítá is an amazing way to spend the day and we firmly believe that no one should leave Iceland without experiencing the jaw-dropping views, splish-splashing down an Icelandic glacial river. After the excitement you can warm up in the hot tubs and sauna and relax and enjoy a cold beverage. We also recommend adding a delicious BBQ lamb or a hamburger (vegan options available) to your booking for you to enjoy at Drumbó River Base.

Come join us and experience the power of the river. Grab your paddle & let’s go get wet!

Iceland Challenge

Holtasel , 109 Reykjavík

Iceland has just welcomed a remarkable addition to its tourism industry. Travel Agency Iceland Challenge, which focuses on challenge tours, has officially opened its doors to those seeking extraordinary travel experiences under the safe conditions of this enchanting Nordic island.

Iceland Challenge Travel Agency offers adrenaline-pumping activities in spectacular and extreme destinations. This kind of travel might be interesting for those who find ordinary bus excursions around Golden Circle boring but still want to feel safe and protected while exploring Iceland.

“We believe that traveling could combine the world-discovery process and self-discovery. We are convinced that Iceland offers fantastic opportunities for this purpose. A country that has turned the course of the world’s history time and again can turn the course of life for those who are ready to carve out room for adventure in their lives”, – commented co-owner Yulia Zhatkina.

As Iceland's popularity as a tourist destination continues to soar, adventurers and thrill-seekers from around the globe are flocking to this Nordic gem in search of unique and unforgettable experiences. Iceland Challenge Travel Agency recognized this growing demand and has meticulously curated a range of challenge tours to cater to the adventurous spirit of its clients.

The agency's team has already created a few Challenge Tours for the upcoming season. For example, the ICE Challenge offers to discover three main Icelandic glaciers in three days. The participants will hike on the glacier, ride snowmobiles, explore an ice cave inside the glacier, and see this frozen beauty from the flying heights. This tour combines thrills, expedition experience, and learning. It is a unique opportunity for people with an adventurous spirit.

Another FOOD and NATURE Challenge is a 9-day culinary and exploring adventure around Iceland that allows you to explore unique flavors of local food as well as the island’s natural wonders. The company's travel experts selected the most famous courses of national Icelandic cuisine, some of which, perhaps, could only be eaten by real Vikings. But some could break hearts and become a favorite food for the rest of their lives. Participants will explore Icelandic extreme cuisine and traditional delicious food in different parts of the country and discover the most spectacular places in Iceland: waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes, and black sand beaches.

The company is also a fully licensed DMC in Iceland and is ready to provide a full range of travel services, including meet & greet, transfers & transportation, hotel accommodation, restaurants, activities, excursions, conferences and themed events, group adventure trips, as well as handmade private tours for groups and individuals.
