Explore the gorgeous rural landscapes near Reykjavik on a family-friendly three-hour dry-land dog sledding tour. Book this unique excursion to enjoy the countryside scenery led by an adorable team of four-legged friends.

You'll be picked up from Reykjavik and escorted to the nearby nature to begin this tour. At the base camp, your expert guides will brief you on safety on the dog sled and your route before you set off.

Dog sledding is suitable for almost all ages and fitness levels. Children as young as four years old can partake in the thrill of dry-land dog sledding, and even those who avoid demanding activities will enjoy the relaxing ride.

Riding on the back of a dog-powered sled is an experience that all dog lovers should try at least once. It is an exciting way to enjoy time with these fun and friendly animals, and the dogs love it too! 

You only need to see their tails wagging as they greet you and their tongues hanging out after a satisfying run to know they enjoy it as much as you do.

Although Iceland does not have any significant history with dog sledding, it is now a widely-loved activity.

Historically, the transportation of people and supplies was the most common goal of dog sledding. Today, the experience is more commonly a sport or a tourist activity. 

As a passenger, you won't be guiding the dogs, but you can get involved and help them along the way. Make sure you dress warmly, even during the summer months, because you'll spend much of the tour sitting down.

When the harnesses are on, you will feel the power and excitement of the husky dogs, ready to take you on an unforgettable journey. Check out the picturesque landscapes as you whiz across the land, and your musher shares their knowledge of and passion for this unique activity.

You might think of snowy terrains when you first hear about dog sledding. However, today's adventure will take you across rural lava fields for a different experience. A dry-land sled has wheels and seats. 

With a steering wheel and handbrake in front, you're ready to hit the road on your dog-powered vehicle. It's probably the cutest form of transport you'll take during your vacation! 

You'll stop for photo opportunities and interaction with the dogs halfway through the tour. The dogs love a good belly rub!

The total length of the kart ride is 45 minutes, after which you will head back to Reykjavik.
