    The trip starts at the farm Vellir in Ölfus where the first half of the day is spent riding on Iceland’s beautiful horses whilst exploring the offbeat open nature. This tour gives you a true taste of Icelandic nature and the opportunity to get to experience a ride with the unique Icelandic horses. We provide all the necessary equipment and a friendly horse that fits your skills. What better way to become in sync with Iceland’s nature than on a unique and peaceful horseback riding excursion. Back at Hotel Eldhestar, you can enjoy a light lunch from the buffet.

    After lunch, we will make our way to Drumbo base camp, where you will go on your river-rafting adventure down the Hvítá river. The river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. Join our trip 7 kilometers down the beautiful river and the chance to jump from high cliffs into the glacial water. No one should leave Iceland without experiencing the power of its rivers and the scenic canyons of Brúarhlöð. The rafting is suitable for kids 11 years and older. This truly is the ultimate family activity trip.
