The suits that they provided were very good. These included life jackets. They had good changing facilities as well. I would recommend bringing a swim shirt and bathing suit which will get wet. Contrary to the picture this is white water rafting with stretches of rough Rapids. They give you the option of jumping off one of the 15 foot cliffs in the water.It helps to know how to paddle.

Yippee!! Our guide went the extra mile; she took us to a special ice cream dairy farm, scrumptious. The waterfalls, geysers, and the river rafting experience were absolutely amazing. Don't miss out on teamwork and an up-close river activity with a lesson in Icelandic geology.

river rafting was the finest thing I did. I thank you. Great company to do business with.

Wonderful experience! Rafting was the most fun we did in Iceland.
