Arctic Adventures is an Icelandic adventure and activity company with an emphasis on ecotourism and environmentally friendly trips throughout Iceland.
Our story starts a long time ago in a faraway country. A young couple called Villa & Bassi went white water rafting in Nepal in 1983 and returned home with an absolute intent to launch Iceland’s first adventure company. They wanted to share their experience from Nepal with Icelanders and started exploring rivers for rafting. One day they came across the Hvítá River and knew that it was just what they had been looking for.
Ever since that time our team has been rafting this beautiful river, taking off from our base camp at Drumboddsstaiðir – aka Drumbó. Over time, our company has expanded and matured resulting in it becoming one if Iceland’s biggest operator when it comes to recreational tourism.
We are proud of our vast tour selection as well as of our great team of guides that do their best every day to make sure that our costumers get the best possible adventure in Iceland. Our primary aim is to offer a small group experience that delivers a comfortable and safe environment for all participants. We are committed to making your time in Iceland more than just a vacation.
Arctic Adventures is currently operating different outings from Reykjavik as well as glacier tours from Sólheimajökull and Skaftafell, snorkeling and diving in Thingvellir and snowmobiling on Langjökull glacier, and many other activities around Iceland, in addition to the rafting on Hvítá River. Choose us as your operator and be sure to go home with a story worth telling.
