Service Description

We operate this unique experience in South Eastern Iceland where we'll spend half a day moving down a river canyon using a variety of safe techniques such as; - Jumping and sliding into crystal clear pools - Rappelling down between sheer rock faces and down waterfalls. We begin by meeting on location, getting you geared up and briefed on safety. As we set off we will walk through the nurseries of trees planted by locals of the Forestry Association of Austur-Skaftafellinga. On the way to the canyon we will hike through an old farmstead now home to a forest. Along the way you will see what it would've been like to be a farmer at the foot of Europe's largest ice cap, Vatnajökull. This trip is built for all who can move with ease for half a day, walking on uneven trails and being confident in water. We will take you through and practice the techniques that will be required to get down the canyon safely on the day. Canyoning experience is NOT necessary. Come with us and we will make sure to send you home with a story.
