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!

This was one of our most favorite things while making the ring around Iceland. Absolute must do. The Huskies sang us a song when we arrived and took us on an adventure through their home lands. Afterwards we were invited into their home and were made to feel as if we lived there. Then we got to cuddle with the pups. Warm, fuzzy, fun, and cozy experience.

Gunnar and Maria are fabulous hosts … warm, welcoming, and passionate about their huskies, who are the friendliest, sharpest and most delightful dogs you’ll ever meet! We visited for a second time this year, went sledding, and it was the trip of a lifetime! Amazingly lucky to see the dogs working as a skilled team, and the fjord and forest around their home is breathtaking. If you ever get a chance to visit this amazing family of humans and dogs - go! You won’t regret it, and you’ll have friends for life.
Thanks Gunnar and Maria - we really appreciate your hospitality. And hi to the huskies!

Visited with my kids aged 5 and 10. Had a wonderful time with all the dogs. Completely immersive experience- owners were so kind. We also learned a huge amount during our visit. Highly recommended.
