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.

Hvita River Iceland

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.

River Jet Experience

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.

The tours are available four times over the day:

If you wear glasses they will fit under the goggles we provide. If you are pregnant we do not recommend that you join the Jet Boat Tour. It is, also, not recommend that people heavier than 130 kg participate.

What equipment is provided?

On this tour, you will be provided with an overall, gloves and all the necessary safety equipment.

When did beer become legal in Iceland?

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.

What does meet on location entail?

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.

How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Arctic Adventures?

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.

Can I drink alcohol before or during Arctic Adventures tours?

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

Do you offer any family friendly tours, for younger children?

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.

Can the itinerary for the tour change?

Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.

Is there a guide on each Arctic Adventures tour?

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

All of our tours are guided in English.

What type of power outlets are used in Iceland? Do I need to bring an adapter?

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

How are the tours rated in terms of difficulty?

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.
