Welcome to the world's northern river rafting capital! Despite a secretive history of hidden whitewater treasures, Iceland has made a poweful emergence onto the global rafting stage in recent years, and continues to gain notoriety for its abundance of wild and beautiful whitewater. Today, as the local rafting industry continues to expand its horizons, Iceland's reputation now boasts some of the greatest single-day and multi-day rafting trips in the world.
The first rafting descents in 1983 marked the birth of a powerful era of adventure tourism, and Arctic Adventures has since grown to be Iceland's largest, longest-running, and most trusted rafting company. Today, we proudly offer a selection of unique and exceptional rafting trips all over north and south Iceland, varying widely in difficulty and length to suit everyone from experienced river junkies to families and first-timers!
