If you’re a dog lover, this tour is for you! Iceland is home to a vibrant dog-sledding community, composed of canines with hardy athleticism and the devoted people who love them. When you combine the experience of sledding through an Arctic wonderland, bonding with a team of lively, lovable Icelandic huskies, and exploring the world-famous Golden Circle route, you’re sure to have an adventure like no other. This tour is offered by dedicated family-owned DogSledding Iceland and Iceland Buddy.
You will be picked up from your Reykjavík-based hotel two hours before the commencement of the tour. You’ll be driven out to Iceland’s ethereal countryside, where you’ll meet your fluffy companions for the day and learn how to man their customized wheeled sleds. You’ll even have the time to enjoy a break, give the huskies a good belly-rub, and even cuddle with a few of the ranch’s adorable puppies.
Next, you’ll embark on the world-famous Golden Circle route, where you will have the opportunity to witness the historical birthplace of the Icelandic nation, the idyllic and historically significant Þingvellir, the glowing “Golden Waterfall” Gulfoss, and the explosive geyser whose name, Stóri Geysir, gave birth to the very name of the geothermal phenomenon.
This tour operates for nine hours in total, and your dog-sledding ride will last for an exciting forty-five minutes out on the snowy hills. Not many travelers will be able to say that they spent the day gliding through the snowy hills with beautiful huskies and exploring some of Iceland’s most significant and famous sites all in one day!
