Dogsledding from Reykjavík

Dog sledding is a unique, memorable, and popular Arctic activity that we warmly recommend when travelling to Iceland. It is a fun and adventurous way to witness the spectacular Icelandic landscape from the back of a dog sled. This dog sledding tour is available all year and designed for travelers that stay for a few days in Reykjavik. Dependent on the location of the base camp, the transfer from Reykjavik takes only 30 to 60 minutes.

It is a fantastic feeling to ride behind a team of dogs and experience an ancient and thrilling mode of traveling. The majority of the pack are Greenland dogs, but you will also be able to give a scratch to a few Siberian and Alaskan huskies.

The tour operator will pick you up close to your accommodation in Reykjavik and the transfer to the base camp takes only 30 to 60 minutes. You will get an introduction to the sledding and there will be some time to socialize and take pictures with the dogs. They are very excited to meet you!

All tours are led by a guide who steers the sled. Tours are available all year and dependent on the season, the tour takes either place on snow or dry land.

Dog Sledding Reykjavík– On Snow

Between December and the beginning of April, chances are good for having enough snow in the area. Once you and the dogs are ready, the real adventure will start. You will slide for approximately 45 minutes through the snowy landscape of South Iceland. Halfway through your journey you will make a short stop so that you can enjoy the nature, take some great photos and give the dogs a good belly rub.

Dog Sledding Reykjavík – On Dry Land

If you embark on this adventure in summer, or if there is no snow, that will be no hindrance. The dogs enjoy a good run all year and your musher will use wheeled equipment. The ride takes approximately 45 minutes and there will be opportunities to take pictures on the tour of the magnificent landscape and of course the dogs!

This husky sledding tour is operated by one of our reliable partners.
