This is a thrill ride but who really needs that in Iceland? I agree with other reviewer that this is for Disney, not for a country filled with natural wonders. Spend your money on something else. Also, this is quite dangerous and all it would...More

This is suitable for Disney-world or 6 Flag attraction and not for Iceland. It's just a thrill ride on a speedboat. If it rains it's even painful. A roller-coaster will be cheaper and more amusing. And at Euro 120 per person it's crazy.

We were 6 friends and we got a invitation to try Riverjet tour and we just said yes. My girlfriend was a bit scared in the beginning but after a while she loved it! It is a fantastic sensation when the boat spins!

I booked this with my husband in mind, not thinking I would enjoy it much myself as I thought I would find it too frightening. Instead we both had a fantastic time. The ride was thrilling, the scenery beautiful, and the staff very friendly and...More

7 of us took the Riverjet ride and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The combination of the thrill from the ride itself, combined with the gorgeous location made it truly unforgettable. Absolutely a highlight of the trip!
