Based on 2 traveller reviews

Witness the marvellous Icelandic landscape in the most fun way possible: from the back of a dog sled. This tour should not be overlooked by anyone who loves nature, animals and adventure.

The tour begins when you are picked up from Reykjavík and driven to Iceland’s South Coast; the journey is short and scenic, and takes your through lava fields, over rivers, and past a sleepy fishing village. 

Once you reach base camp, you will immediately have the opportunity to greet the dogs before they take you on your adventure. The majority of the pack are Greenland Dogs, but you will also be able to give a scratch to a few Siberian and Alaskan Huskies. Your guide - called a musher - will tell you all about the history of the different breeds and dog-sledding.

As soon as you meet the dogs, you will see that they are well looked after and 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 for a common goal. You can thus start this tour 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 landscape of wide fields and rolling hills. If you embark on this adventure in summer, or if there is no snow, that will be no hindrance; your musher will simply attach tires to the sled and your tour will continue. 

You will be rushing through the beautiful Icelandic nature for about an hour. You will have a chance, however, to stop and take photographs and to take in the incredible surroundings.

Do not miss this opportunity to witness beautiful Icelandic nature, take an exhilarating ride, and meet a pack of incredible animals. Check availability by choosing a date.

What a wonderful experience! We sadly didn't get the snow but it was still very magical to take a ride with the dogs. Clearly they are all so well looked after and you can see how loved each and every dog is. We even got to meet the puppies! Highly recommend, the snow would really just add to this experience.
