From Akureyri we drive for about an hour, straigth to Bakkaflöt in the heart of Skagafjörður fjord, in the NorthWest part of Iceland. Bakkaflöt is a 30 year old family-run company that has years of experience in the field of tourism.

At Bakkaflöt we take you for an adventure on both the East and the West Glacial Rivers, a family River rafting tour that you will never forget. These family river rafting trips aren´t only for families, they are for anyone who wants unlock Iceland’s wild natural beauty while riding through a majestic glacial canyon.

The river rafting trips can be tailored to your wishes, you can bumble on down the river while taking in the amazing geographical landscape of the north Iceland and cascading waterfalls or get in a splashing match with your team and if you dare the guide! 

During the trip you will stop at one of the many geothermal hot springs to enjoy the steam, warm up your fingers and toes and relax as your rafting guide makes some outbound style coco right by the river. For those who are brave and excited about getting closer to the mineral rich waters of the west glacial river there is also an option to do some cliff jumping.
