Description:

Combine fun adventure and adorable sled dogs in the stunning remote places...

Combine fun adventure and adorable sled dogs in the stunning remote places of Iceland.

Families, friends and lovers will have an unforgettable unique experience.

Imagine the sound of the dogs breathing is the only noise you will hear.

Dog sledding is a lot of fun and a real treat for anyone with adventure in their blood. Dog sledding does not create any air or noise pollution; it's just you, the frosty stillness and our majestic furry friends leading the pack across the snow.

Unique activity in the Land of Ice and Fire ALL YEAR ROUND

Siggit, the owner of the dogs, came to pick us up to Reykjavik. He is the kindest and most passionate person in Iceland without doubt. He cared about our happiness throughout the whole tour. The dog sledding experience was amazing and we got to spend a lot of time with the dogs. Overall, the best tour I had in Iceland!

My husband and I did the dogsledding last week and we had a blast. It was a cold, windy day, but that just added to the atmosphere on the glacier. We were on our own sled with the musher (Henrik), and he had a lot of interesting information about the dogs and dogsledding. We each got a turn to mush,... More

My friend was really gung-ho about doing this. I was more reserved, but I regret that now! It was absolutely amazing. I loved the experience more than I thought possible. If you are even moderately on the fence, I would recommend going. The owner is so nice and really cares about the dogs. The mushers are experienced and caring. You... More

I'm so happy I went on this tour. The mushers were super cool and very knowledgeable about the dogs and all things related to dog sledding. The tour is very well priced compared to other tours in Iceland and well worth it! You will have to drive to Husafell but the drive is absolutely beautiful and on the way you... More

This is quite simply the most amazing experience. We were picked up from our accommodation in the city and drove for just under an hour to the site of a Ski resort for the husky ride itself. On the drive over our host was incredibly friendly and informed us about all the different dogs we were about to meet and... More

One of the best things I have ever experienced! I definitely recommend dogsledding.is, from the ridiculously cute puppies we played with while waiting for the trip to start, to getting to spend time with the sled dogs at the end. I can't fault the team running this, everyone was really friendly and helpful, insuring we were adequately wrapped up against... More

We had a nice and funny moment with them and their dogs. We couldn't choose especially one moment that we prefered because we loved all time we spent with them! We loved the dogsledding but also the moment where we could hug and kiss the lovely dogs and puppies. Our musher was very kind and skilled. He explained us a... More

We had this trip booked last year but the storms meant we couldn't do it. So we booked early for this year, and so glad we did! It was such good fun, and loved meeting the dogs before and afterwards, and especially loved cuddling one of the puppies. He said he would check my coat before we left - just... More

We absolutely loved the dog sledding and it one of the best parts of our trip! Our 'driver' was extremely personable and it was really neat to hear about each of the dogs and their personalities. The sledding itself was so much fun and we had a beautiful clear day, which it made it that much more spectacular. Being dog... More
