"7. Rafting in Jokulsa Vestari..." Iceland Favorite Tip by inuit

Iceland General: 275 reviews and 309 photos


Favorite thing: 7. Rafting in Jokulsa Vestari - north Iceland. 2-3 rafting grade.
'The Boat People' in Skagafjord area will take you for rafting in a glacial river coming out of the Hofsjokull and run north. They have great Nepalese stuff who work there in summer. The rafting it self take about 2 hours but the all thing take about 4-5 hours. You will get dry suites since the water is 2-3 Celcius. The river runs inside wonderful basalt gorge. In one point the guides will give you the chance to jump of a small cliff into to milky water. Great!!! if you are more advnture like try the Jokulsa Oustari 4-5 rafting

Fondest memory: falling off the boat in the Jokulsa Oastari and saved by a safety Kayak. Dont try it!!!
