From Iceland — Kayakers Take On Icelandic Waterfalls

Kayakers Take On Icelandic Waterfalls

Published June 7, 2012

Three kayakers who travel the world in search of more challenging waterfalls have recently stopped by Iceland, kayaking some waterfalls which have already claimed lives.
The three kayakers in question – Steve Fisher, from South Africa, and Ben Brown and Jarred Meehan from New Zealand – have been around the world at times kayaking down waterfalls that few have dared approach. They have recently come to Iceland and kayaked Aldeyjarfoss and Goðafoss, both of which have formidable drops themselves and have claimed the lives of people attempting to navigate them.
Amateur photographer Desre Tate has taken some photos of their exploits, which can be seen on this Daily Mail page.
A video of previous kayak runs in Iceland – which includes a drop off Aldeyjarfoss – can be seen in this video (overdub music warning):
