If you love dogs and/ or the Islandic countryside then this a must for you. The crew were extremely friendly, and having dealt with dogs for many years I can confirm they are loved and well looked-after ... definitely family members, not beasts of burden by any means. If you have the time take this trip even if there is no snow, it is definitely woth it and - I imagine that COVID 19 has also had a detrimental impact on the dogsledding business too - help support their livelyhood and help their fourlegged friends in the process :-)

It's 7 AM, and we are leaving Reykjavik in our newly rented car. The adventure begins! Whatever you expect from the dogsledding be prepared for the best dogsledding of your life. You wouldn't spend three days in open artic landscape, but these guys give a taste what is really like to ride the dogs and enjoy the wind passing through your face when you hear "hoi, hoi" from your chef rider. These guys are super nice and help you to get warm before you sit on the sledges. That said dress well cover the nose, get sunglasses, get yourself and a good pair of gloves too. The ride is approximately an hour, which is enough time for you to take some fantastic pictures. So get your camera ready - so can share some memories with your loved ones. These guys rocks! We'll be back again soon J+

The tour was easy to book with a convenient pickup right near my Reykjavik hotel. After reaching the sledding site, luckily it was a clear cold day with plenty of snow. We were greeted by about 40 or so dogs of many breeds, equipped to handle multiple sleds...some barking for attention, and some more chill and relaxed, but all beautiful in their own way. Leading up to the "mush", we had the opportunity to meet the dogs, pet them, and take pictures with them. They were so inviting and friendly, and they loved the attention! As the staff prepared the dogs to begin sledding, it was quite a sight to observe the dogs happily spin and howl in anticipation. Once the mush began, I was the first to stand at the helm on our sled, and very impressed by their strength and intelligence. After periodic stops it was amazing to observe our lead dog "Chinook" look back intently waiting for the next instruction. I enjoyed the experience so much, that the 45 minutes went by so quickly. Ultimately, the dogs appeared to be well cared for and happy, which is the most important thing. Special thanks to Kristin, who was very informative on what to expect, and gave us a lesson on the type of dogs that we would be seeing that day... and to our musher Q, for his expertise and patience with endless questions. Being born and bred in an urban city environment made this extra special for me. This was a highlight of my trip to Iceland, and provides a timeless memory. Very recommended for the animal lover.

This was my favorite and most memorable activity on my vacation, without a doubt you must do it if you love dogs. The dogs are clearly well taken care of and very loved - and they love what they're doing, too! Such a great time hanging with the dogs before the sledding began, you'll have lots of opportunities for photos and videos. Must do!
