Meet the incredible Siberian Huskies who pull sleighs through the Icelandic snowscapes. This tour is a must for animal lovers, as it is simply an opportunity to meet and play with some of the friendliest animals in the country.

You will start this tour by heading to the Snow Dogs Unchained Kennel at the farm Heiði, where at least twenty sled dogs are waiting for you to greet them. They are all friendly and used to visitors, and love the attention you will bring; you will have plenty of opportunities to take some photographs with them and give them a good belly-rub.

Siberian Huskies have a very gentle nature and are great with children. They are also some of the world’s most beautiful dogs, with their thick fur coat, perked up ears, and intelligent faces.

While you play with the animals, you will learn about how dog-sledding works, and how the Siberian Husky came to be an ideal breed for it. You will see the amount of care and training that goes into the dogs, but also the amount of respect for them; the dogs here get plenty of attention, rest and food so that they are always happy to do their jobs. 

Sled dogs have, over thousands and thousands of years, been bred to excel at what they do and to enjoy it. Huskies have a high amount of strength, energy, and resilience, resistance to cold conditions, and a highly ingrained pack mentality, making them perfect for the job.

Because of these traits, the dogs enjoy being outside, and are free to roam around the farm whenever the weather outside allows; they can handle almost any conditions but are taken into the kennels for their comfort during storms.

Don't miss this opportunity of enjoying the company of Siberian Huskies, and learn all about their history and training. Check availability by choosing a date.
