River Ride - Canoeing tour
Available 15th of May - 11th of September
This white water canoeing tour is run yearly in the lovely river of Hvítá. If you're looking for a challenging adventure out in the Icelandic nature river ride has it all. The canoes are inflated and selfbailing, meaning
that they do not fill with water and are easy to manuever in the rapids. Two
people sit together in the canoe and steer it, meanwile a guide in a kayak makes
sure everything is safe and sound. You'll 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 RiverRide is a great action trip,
specially for those with some experience in rafting.
