  • My husband and I did this with a group of family/friends while in Iceland for a wedding. The base was easy to find- plenty of signs showing the way. We had booked the more challenging East river tour ...  more »
  • As the title assume I have experienced my first rafting trip with compeny of Bakkaflot on a East glacilar river of Iceland. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life. Our trip ...  more »

  • This is a great outfitter for glacial white water rafting in Iceland. Took my whole family on a trip with them one morning. They completely outfitted us with everything we could possibly need including dry tops, neoprene booties and gloves. All the equipment was in excellent condition. They shuttle bussed up through the valley and we could see the river below and then they gave us a very, very thorough safety briefing before venturing off for a two-hour glacial Whitewater Adventure. The Nepalese guides were extremely competent and we felt very comfortable having them in charge. Very talented kayak chase boat was always right nearby just in case. Terrific bunch of Gods at this Outfitter. The shuttle bus driver was even good enough to scramble down the rocks and take photos of us which he then sent to us later. Hot lamb soup at the take out to warm us up. Oh, and then hot Jacuzzis once we got back. Love this place. Great white water too.
  • Great spot to camp. Affordable and the guy was nice enough to let us use the wifi. Full kitchen and showers.
  • Nice camping with all facilities and good price.
  • Great location close to river (camping nearby is so relaxing). Great thing to count on a kitchen. Only downside, no shower included.
  • We had a great time river rafting with Bakkaflöt. We took the easier river as we are beginners (West Glacial River). All the equipment was very good and the guides were terrific. When the tour ended we went in the hot tub in Bakkaflöt guesthouse (included in the price) which was just what the doctor ordered after having been in a cold river for more than an hour :) A whole lot of fun and highly recommended experience!
