River Rafting Family Rafting Extreme Rafting What to bring with you and the small print Safety Guides 2017

Each trip we run safety is our primary concern. We only use up to date modern equipment, all of our rafts, paddles, lifejackets and helmets are less than 5 years old. Our guide team all hold internationally recognised certificates in raft guiding, first aid and river rescue.

Each season we are constantly training and reviewing our safety standards and evacuation procedures.

On each trip we guarantee you the following:

  • 5mm thick wetsuit to keep you warm and protect you from any rocks should you take a swim
  • helmet
  • lifejacket (pfd - personal flotation device)
  • shoes
  • dry top
  • full safety brief in English/Icelandic.

We always carry minimum of 2 VHF radios, a comprehensive first aid kit and most of all well trained, friendly and professional raft guides.

Our buses all confirm to Icelandic transport regulations and all of our drivers hold commercial driving licenses.

Should you have any more questions, please contact us and we will help you! Welcome to our trips on the beautiful East and West Glacial rivers!
