Get the ultimate Arctic experience and join this fun-filled dogsledding tour in northern Iceland. Breathe in the cool mountain air as you whizz across the snow on a small sledge pulled by adorable Huskies.

Those travelling to the town of Akureyri and want to spice up their holiday with a unique adventure should not miss this tour. You'll be picked up in the morning at your accommodation in Iceland's 'Capital of the North', Akureyri, or from the town's domestic airport. From there, 2 qualified guides, or mushers, will take you to the best slope available in the vicinity of the town.

The musher will tell you everything you need to know about this ancient method of transportation, dogsledding, from how it started to the encouraging words to use and how to steer, stop and slow down the sledge. Then, there is nothing left but for you to take the lead of your own dog sledge, pulled by the kennel's charming Huskies.

For half an hour to one hour, you and your new four-legged friends will race across the powdery snow, surrounded by nothing but northern Iceland's beautiful wintery landscapes. You will feel the wind in your hair and the adrenaline surging through your veins as you whizz past white hills and snow-topped mountains on this exciting tour.

After your ride, you'll get to cuddle and pet these friendly and adorable pure bred Siberian Huskies. You will also get to have your picture taken with the dogs to commemorate this adventure in the North before you return back to Akureyri.

Gather up your favourite people and come along on this unique, family-friendly adventure just outside of Akureyri town. Meet the charming Huskies and race through the beautiful winter landscapes of northern Iceland on this fantastic dogsledding tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
