The East Glacial River is indeed one of the most challenging and toughest rivers in Iceland and is, off course, the best place to go while you plan for an exciting rafting tour. Here, the whitewater ride starts down the wonderful East River Canyon.
The rafting venture kick-starts in the canyon and then the river flows through several bends and twists. Once you plan to paddle ahead and lean on the water, you might find yourself unexpectedly running down a rapid. Almost instantly, the speed of the water surpasses the speed of your paddle, and you get hit by the great wall of it. It splashes your face and you are drenched all over. Well, that is exactly what you can experience once you go on a rafting expedition on the East Glacial River.
The entire river turns from a peaceful water body to a massive piece of surging and splitting whitewater within a few moments. Rafters’ crash and jump through the rapids and stumble upon the frothy and biggest whitewaters. Some of the most challenging rapids on the river such as “The lost of screaming lady” and the “Green Room”, will make you crash down and disappear in the waters.
Well, you will soon resurface in the torrent and set yourself afloat through the white waves. While the cold water drenches your body, you can surely feel the sound of the waves and the waters falling from a height. Possibly, the voyage will be the best thing you had experienced in your lifetime, as it will set your adrenalin rushing and electrify you to some great extent. For a safer ride, it is best to seek the help of professional rafters.
