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.
