GO WITH THE FLOW - Rafting Down the Hvítá river with Arctic Adventures.

The Hvítá—White River—originates in a lake on the Langjökull glacier, where melting ice and rainwater begin their journey seawards. As the Icelandic highlands give way, the Hvítá plunges down the 30 m (100 ft) drop of Gullfoss waterfall, the climax of the Golden Circle, and then flows, tumbles and meanders its way through the low-lying farmland of South Iceland, before finally reaching the North Atlantic. Along the way, it passes Drumboddsstaðir, a family-run farm north of the Ring Road, reachable by one of those unpaved rural tracks I’ve always envied people for having a good reason to drive down. Today, I have a reason: a river rafting trip with Arctic Adventures.
