Enjoy a trip through the magnificent West Glacial canyon. This trip is ideal for those who want to enjoy a relaxing trip and take in some breathtaking scenery. For family rafting the West is the best.
The West Glacial River is classed as 2-3.
All of the trips with Bakkaflöt rafting start and end at their onsite boathouse. The friendly and professional guides will provide you with all the equipment needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers. Bakkaflöt rafting will provide wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids/life jackets and rafting booties. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm long sleeve fleece and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humour and adventure!
From the boathouse we will then take a 20 minute drive towards the West Glacial River. Once there, your trip leader will give a full safety brief. You will then be divided into crews and assigned a boat and a special guide. Once on the river we will enter canyon with its high walls and amazing geology. Along the way we may stop for a unique hot chocolate and for a spot of cliff jumping for the brave ones. The bus will be waiting at the takeout for the short drive back to the base where the hot pools await. Trip time is approx. 3 hours.
Trips on the West River are run daily at 10:00 and 14:00 (minimum 4 people). The minimum age is 12 years. Any children younger than 12 years old must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian.
