Combine nature & action in one perfect day! This tour offers an adventurous day, starting at our farm Vellir where the first half of the day is spent riding the unique Icelandic horse in scenic surroundings. After riding 1.5-2 hours on soft trails along green meadows with views of volcanic mountains light lunch is served at Hótel Eldhestar. Then you will be picked up for rafting in the glacial river Hvítá, the “white river”. This popular river has a perfectly balanced mix of serene canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. We raft for 7 kilometers and at one point participants get the chance to jump from a cliff into the river.
Included: 1.5-2 hours riding, light lunch at Hotel Eldhestar, rafting.
Hotel pick-up in Reykjavik every day between 8:00-8:30. Return to Reykjavík ca. 20:00
