Bakkaflöt Travel Service

Bakkaflot is located by road number 752 about 10 kilometers from road number 1 at Varmahlíð in North Iceland. At Bakkaflot you can go river rafting in the Austari Jökulsá river and the Vestari Jökulsá river.

Klara Jónsdóttir & Sigurður Friðriksson first opened the doors at Bakkaflöt in 1987. Since then Bakkaflöt has grown to become a well established activity and accommodation base in the heart of Skagafjörður.

1993 was the start of the river rafting operation. In the early days Bakkaflöt introduced 200 people to rafting here in Iceland. After almost 20 years Bakkaflöt now employs 6 professional raft guides and takes more than 3000 people for an adventure on both the East and the West Glacial River each year.

Travel service Bakkaflöt has a variety of accommodation to suit everyone. In 2011 we built 5 nice cabins with en suite facilities for those wanting their own privacy with a great view.

Bakkaflöt now proudly offers:

  • 22 rooms in the main guesthouse
  • 5 cabins
  • 2 summerhouses
  • Campsite with kitchen and toilet facilities
  • Swimming pool and hot pools

Besides rafting we are more than happy to help you to arrange great activities for the whole family, including wipeout-course, horseback riding, paintball just to name a few. After the excitement our hot pools are waiting for you!

Bakkaflöt is also a perfect place for arranging a party! We can cater for any kind of occasion, such as family meetings, weddings and birthday parties. Our dining room can serve groups up 70-80 people.

Each year we look forward to welcoming our guests, both old and new visitors and helping to make your holiday perfect in every way we can. We hope this website provides you with all the necessary information needed.
