Good day. Thank you for contacting Snow Dogs. From Reykjavík it is a long way. 460 km. There is easiest for you to fly to Akureyri (45 min) and take a taxi or a tour from there. All the best. Sæmundur Snow Dogs.

Good day. In summer we offer cart tours and kennel visit. I recommend you drive around Iceland in 1-2 weeks. From south Iceland it takes about 12 hours to drive to us. All the best. Sæmundur Snow Dogs
