About tHE TOUR
This package allows you to book both horse riding and river rafting at once with a discount.
First, you start at Syðra-Skörðugil and ride for two hours. We ride towards the river Skarðsá and back. In this tour, you will be amazed at how this small, unique Icelandic horse can steal your heart. This trip is for riders with no riding skills as well as advanced riders.
We provide riding equipment such as saddle, bridles, helmet and raincoats if needed.
After the riding tour, we drive to Bakkaflöt and go river rafting in West glacial river. The West glacial river is a family suited rafting experience where you will enjoy a trip through the magnificent West Glacial canyon. This trip is ideal for those who want to enjoy a relaxing trip and take in some breathtaking scenery.
All of our rafting trips start and end from our onsite boathouse. Our friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers.
We will then take a 20-minute drive towards the West Glacial river. At the rafting put in your trip leader will give a full safety brief. You will then be divided into crews and assigned a boat and most of all your guide. Once on the river, we will enter the canyon with its high walls and amazing geology. Along the way, we may stop for a unique hot chocolate and for a spot of cliff jumping for the brave ones. The bus will be waiting at the takeout for the short drive back to the base where the hot pools await.
