We had the best time visiting with Gunni and his pack! We spent a ton of time playing with the dogs. Gunni was great and showed us around the property. We even got to meet some of their newest puppies! No dogsledding due to the season, but still highly recommend for animal lovers!

Thank you to Maria & Gunni for welcoming us into their home and introducing their Husky Children to us! I have never met a Husky before and I was a bit anxious because of their stereotype however they were all so friendly! Ella has taken a particular liking to Stormur and is already asking when we can next see him! We hope to see you again in the future! And I hope Gunni receives the same hospitality and friendliness when he visits to U.K. in May!

Thank you for coming. One of my favorite things is having a guest who comes in, a bit nervous but when leaving, all of that is gone. Especially when a child is a little scared, in the beginning, but then refuses to leave when the visit is over. That's priceless.

Unbelievable that this has only 1 review - my wife found Maria and Gunni's experience via 'Visit Akureyri' and it is one of the best experiences of my and our life. If you love animals, I challenge you to think of a better experience than this once you've done it! I don't want to ruin any surprise, just book it and have the time of your life :-D

We did the petting but it was anything but. Fully immersive and lots of fun!! Thank you guys!!

There are more reviews but we changed "petting" to private and group visits and all the reviews were put into private petting instead of spreading them between both. But thanks for the compliment and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit.

We had a great experience with goHusky tours from start to ending. We were picked up at the cruise port and welcomed into Maria and Gunni's home. Not to mention the 18 huskies that gave us quite the welcome as well. We enjoyed a great hike with a few lucky huskies (rocks are drawn to take a few each day). After we returned from the hike, Maria showed us the sleds as well as hats being knitted from the husky fur-how cool! Such a great experience and day trip. We would recommend it to anyone traveling to the area. Just an awesome experience.

The highlight of our trip to Iceland!Gunni picked us up at the cruise port with one of his gorgeous pups! He drove us to his lovely home right on the water! We met his wife Maria and they made us feel like we were old friends. They introduced us to their 18 beautiful huskies! The dogs were so sweet and you could see how loved they are. We learned so much about Iceland and Huskies, it was the best time! We definitely want to go back in the winter to have a sled ride! Highly recommend!

We had a great time with the husky’s. The dogs were friendly and well behaved. What made the trip was the family. They couldn’t have been more attentive. We arrived 40 minutes early and they made us feel welcome. Our walk with the dogs was individualized. After the walk we were served hot chocolate and had a great conversation. The scenery was beautiful. I can’t speak highly enough about the couple. Our visit with them was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend them.

Hiking with the husky sled dogs and their owners was one of the highlights of our time in Iceland. Our teenage daughters loved meeting and petting the fourteen dogs, and my husband and I enjoyed our time conversing with Maria and Gunnar while hiking. It was an easy way to have an authentic conversation with locals and get to know a bit about life in Iceland. And the location was breathtaking! The hike started at their home, where all fourteen dogs live (and are obviously very well cared for). Highly recommend!

Awesome activity. Everyone had a long go at running their own team. The guide was fun, informative and patient. Clearly these dogs are adored, they are beautiful.

My friends and I visited with Maria, Gunni, and the huskies in November and we had a lovely time! Maria and Gunni were so warm and welcoming and the dogs were so sweet and entertaining. Their house sits in an amazingly beautiful location on the water and it was a great backdrop to playing with the pups. They dogs were well behaved and each had such distinct personalities, some wanted to snuggle, others wanted to run around. We didn’t have enough time to do a sledding tour but next time we’re in the area it’s on the top of our list with goHusky. If you love dogs I can’t recommend goHusky enough!

We visited GoHusky with our two year old daughter and it was so much fun. The family who run it are amazingly accomodating and so friendly and informative and told us so many interesting and cool things about the dogs.
And the dogs, oh my gosh they are so beautiful, sweet and friendly. We played with them for hours and could of stayed there all day! Our daughter had the best time with these furry dogs, she didn't want to leave.
I can't not mention either the location, beautiful! We went in January and there was snow everywhere, a cute little church right next door, and mountains and water as a backdrop, breathtaking!
If you are in the area I highly recommend a visit or a sled ride, we'll definitely be back!
