Stop at the charming Drumbó River Base for a Whitewater Jet Boat Adventure before getting a chance to taste some of Iceland’s most delicious beers. This River Jet and Beer Tour Combo is the perfect detour to make while doing the famous Golden Circle tour.
The Hvítá river originates in Langjökull glacier then runs into the Gullfoss waterfall making quite the spectacle before getting ready to flow through the Brúarhlöð gully. This is where you will be Jet boating at a tremendous speed up and about in this staggering setting with incredibly beautiful basalt columns and purple lupin flowers surrounding the area.
Your expert guide will provide you with all the gear needed and help you suit up before going over all the safety instructions and things that are good to know before taking off on this memorable adventure. You will feel like a Hollywood action hero as soon as the boat speeds off and starts blasting through the glacial water filled canyon and the feeling of doing something as exciting as this in a setting as intensely beautiful as this is hard to beat.
Once done with the speed boating we will rejoin at the Drumbó River Base for a fantastic beer tasting experience. The guide will talk you through everything you need to know about Icelandic beer brewing and answer any questions you might have all whilst you enjoy tasting some of Iceland’s most tasty drops.

Iceland struggled to seek independence from Denmark and because beer was associated with Denmark it was very much frowned upon. This is what led to the banning of beer. The 1st of March 1989 saw the legalisation of beer in Iceland after 74 years.
Meet on location means travelling to the location of the tour yourself and then meeting our tour guides rather than being picked up and taken to the location.
This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.
Here you should wait for your guide.
Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Special Tours, has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summer time).
Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at time of booking. The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us. Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
