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.

We had an absolutely wonderful time meeting and playing with the huskies at Snow Dogs. We had to call about a time change and the dog trainer was understanding and flexible. In all we were able to spend about and hour and a half learning about the dogs and the Snow Dogs kennel. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. I would recommend this tour to any dog lover or any one else for that matter. 10/10 would highly recommend.

We had a truly wonderful time - this was a great experience and i'd recommend it to anyone! My 11 and 9 year old children were thrilled to meet the dogs. We got to play with, stroke and generally love these gorgeous animals. We learned about huskies and sledding, got to help groom a dog, and then had a lovely time playing with the puppies. The host was welcoming, kind and generous with her time. Thank you so much snow dogs!!

This place was amazing. The owner was warmth to us and very kind to her dogs. It was an amazing experience to learn about the dogs, alot of time with them and touch them while understanding their personalities. I highly recommend this if you are a dog lover as you will constantly be surrounded by the huskies :) As for location, good to use google gps to search for exact location as compared to the car's gps.

Booking was changed last minute by us. Missed the email from the company saying that they could not accommodate the tour. However, when we reached, something was arranged for us so that the tour could go on. Thumbs up for the customer service! Highly recommended. Will definitely go for the dog sledding next time round back in Iceland!
