South East Of Iceland

South East ehf is a small family business located in the town of Höfn on the southeast coast of Iceland.

Our names are Anna María and Siggi, we run this business and our aim is to make your visit to our beautiful area as magnificent as we can. We have lived here almost all our lives and know the area and all of its hidden gems.

We have one 4×4 Nissan Patrol on 38″ tires and one Ford Excursion extended on 45″ tires. The Patrol takes 6 passengers and the Ford takes 10 passengers. We specialize in smaller groups and private tours but if we have a request for larger groups we do our best to supply the survice our customers seek. We are so lucky to have friends with super jeeps to help us if needed.

Siggi is the driver and guide, he has worked for many years in our local rescue unit. He worked as a fisherman for about 23 years but for the last 7 years he has been a harbor pilot and the director of the port of Hornafjörður.

If you have any questions or want to book a tour please send us an email or you can contact us on Facebook, our email adress and Facebook link are at the top of our home page.

Viking Rafting Iceland

Our commitment to international standards

Far more than a small isolated rafting company in North Iceland, we are an active member of the International Rafting Federation and the world’s whitewater community. In an environment where local standards are virtually non-existent, we work with world leaders to bring home the highest standards in the industry. International standards do not come without international experience; last season, our team of 10 came from 8 countries and represented a combined professional rafting experience of 67 years in 14 countries.

How this sets us apart:

− Viking Rafting is the only International Rafting Federation (IRF) recognized company in Iceland, and 1 of only 5 in Europe.

− All of our guides and safety kayakers hold International Rafting Federation certification.

− The 3 founding guides of Viking Rafting are the only IRF-certified Grade 4/5 Rafting Instructors in Iceland, two of whom are the only Grade 4/5 Safety Kayak Instructors in the country.

Our focus on quality

QUALITY GUIDES.

You will not find a team of more highly experienced, trained, or certified river guides in Iceland, we promise you that. Every one of our Trip Leaders, Guides, and Safety Kayakers hold the following certifications:

– International Rafting Federation (IRF) Award, meaning that they meet internationally-approved standards in professional skill and experience (for more on IRF standards, click here)

– Advanced Wilderness First Aid or higher

– Swiftwater Rescue Technician Level 1 or higher

– Many other country-specific qualifications in professional river guiding and instruction (UK, New Zealand, Canada, etc.)

QUALITY EQUIPMENT.

We are the only rafting company in Iceland, and one very few in the world, that provide all of our guests with dry suits. Despite the significant costs of having and maintaining this equipment, we believe it vital to the safety or comfort of our guests in a paddling climate such as ours. Our off-river time is almost entirely dedicated to regular maintenance and repair of our equipment, all of which is done on site, by us.
