Bakkaflöt Travel Service

Bakkaflöt is a family-owned company that started in 1987. We offer a variety of accommodations. We have a 22 room guesthouse that offers cozy cabin with en suite bathrooms, double or triple rooms with shared

bathrooms. We also have two bigger cottages with cooking facilities.

We have a small heated swimming pool outside and two hot tubs. Other facilities include a TV lounge, terrace,

restaurant and bar area.

Next to the river Svartá we have a beautiful campsite with good cooking facilities.

In 1994 we started the river rafting in East glacial river and West glacial river.

West glacial river, class 2. Family rafting:

Scenic ride down the majestic Glacial Canyon. We´ll make a stop for a delicious hot chocolate from a geothermal spring and another stop to jump off a cliff. Great experience for the whole family.

East glacial river, class 4. Extreme rafting:

East glacial river is by far one of the best 1-day rafting rivers in Europe. Enjoy a delicious traditional Icelandic meat soup after the tour. The Extrem rafting is a total bliss and we can guarantee you will get wet.

Sit on top kayak trip down the river Svartá is an enjoyable and scenic nature ride in the midnight sun.

On site: accommodation in cabins and our guesthouse, camping site, small swimming pool, hot tubs, restaurant and bar.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
