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:
