Your excursion begins with a pick-up from your Reykjavik accommodation. You’ll greet your driver and enjoy a short, scenic journey out of the city. The operator’s base camp is approximately 21 miles (34 kilometers) from the capital. 

You should wear warm, waterproof clothing and waterproof outdoor shoes or boots for the tour. Bring sunglasses or goggles if you have them. Remember your camera, too, because you will have fantastic photo opportunities today.

Once you reach your destination, you will receive any extra clothing or gear necessary. The clothing includes waterproof overalls, gloves, and goggles if you need them. Dressing in this will ensure you stay cozy and dry during the ride. 

You can greet the dogs before they take you on your journey. Most of the pack are Alaskan huskies, but you can also pet a few Greenland dogs. 

Your guide is called a musher. They will tell you about the different breeds and dog sledding history. You can ask them any questions throughout the tour.

The dogs are very well cared for. All of these breeds love the exercise of dog-sledding and have a pack mentality, which means they enjoy working with each other to reach a common goal. You can begin your excursion knowing full well that all involved, human and animal, will have an excellent time. 

Once you and the dogs are ready, the true adventure will start. After mounting the sled, you will shoot across the breathtaking snowy landscape with four or five people in each sled.

You’ll zoom through the beautiful Icelandic nature for 35-45 minutes. Your musher will stop during the ride, allowing you to take photos and bask in your spectacular surroundings. 

The dogs love a good belly rub, so there will also be time to interact with them. They’re very friendly, so enjoy cuddling with them. It will be an experience that will stay with you for years.

After your unforgettable ride across Iceland’s pristine winter landscapes, you can say farewell to the dogs. Your driver will drop you back in Reykjavik, where the tour finishes.

Take advantage of the opportunity to witness stunning Icelandic nature, take an exhilarating ride, and meet a pack of incredible animals on this three-hour dog sledding tour from Reykjavik. Check availability now by choosing a date.
