We did a round trip of Iceland & dogsledding was definitely the highlight of our trip.
The dogsledding took place at Krafla fields which is near Myvatn lake, since it had the best snow at that time.
The owner Bergþóra answered all our questions prior to the trip and was very kind and helpful.
Everything went smoothly, once we met, we got overalls to wear which kept us warm,
We had great time on the dogsledding, took many pictures and had a lot of time with the dogs.
Bergþóra also allowed us to mush with her on the sled which was a great experience for us and was a lot of fun, we learned the magical word … "Hike"  .
The dogs are beautiful & fluffy and were very excited to go running.
We can't put in words how amazing this experience was, just book it, you will not be disappointed.
Bergþóra, thank you so much for this exiting adventure, we will definitely do it again on our next trip to Iceland, our only regret is not being able to come to your farm due to our personal constraints on that day, but we will definitely won't miss it the next time.

Visiting Myvatn, we managed to get the dog sledding tour for 2 hours.
What a nice experience :)
The owners are friendly and they do not check time. You have plenty of time for the tour, have time with the dogs and talk with the couple as they offered us some coffee and chocolate. The dogs are so sweet and we enjoyed that experience so much.
We were - quite - ready for the cold but the overall suit is very warm, don't worry about that. We definitely recommend that experience.

We planned our trip around doing this. It was an amazing experience that we'll never forget. My husband and I loved that it was just the couple who ran this at their home. The dogs are beautiful and were so happy and excited to go running. We learned a ton from the caretakers in the few hours we were there about the local life near Lake Myvtan and how they take care of the dogs. There wasn't much snow because it has been a warm winter but enough to sled on! After we got to pet the dogs and meet them up close and they invited us in for coffee and chocolate and to chat in the kitchen. We loved the personal touches and they are such a friendly couple. I'm so thankful they shared this with tourists! And they gave us coveralls so we weren't cold! I actually wore my snow pants underneath. Best experience - book it! And the area around Lake Myvtan is magical!

The owners are very friendly and are happy to answer any questions about the dogs as well as offering tidbits of information throughout the tour.
The dogs seem to be very happy and well cared for. They're also very friendly so you can pet them and give them belly rubs.
The dog sled ride itself is a wonderful experience and it's very peaceful on the trail. I would definitely recommend this to friends as it was the best part of our entire trip.

My wife and I were at Lake Myvatn in January and heard about this dog sledding outfit. We booked the night before and showed up the next morning to be greeted by the owners, Saemi and Bergthora. They are a charming and energetic couple who invited us into their home to get suited up in super warm overalls and gloves. We started with a dog sled trip around the Lake Myvatn area for a little over an hour. It was amazing! We were on Bergthora's sled and she was great, she even allowed us to take turns as mushers. After the dog sled ride we got to hang around with the dogs in their kennel and barn. The dogs are super well cared for and are very affectionate. We closed the day by having hot cocoa and cookies in the kitchen. This day was one of the highlights of our time in Iceland! We absolutely recommend Snow Dogs if you are in the Lake Myvatn area.
