Husky Sledding Iceland – All Year – South Iceland

Witness the spectacular Icelandic landscape in the most fun way possible: from the back of a dog sledge. This husky sledding tour is perfect for those who love animals and adventure. The tour is available all year and designed for travelers on a self-drive tour in Iceland. 

Embark on the ultimate arctic adventure and experience an ancient and thrilling mode of traveling. This tour is perfect for those who love animals, adventure, and spectacular scenery.

The tour operator is running the tour in different locations depending on where are the best conditions for the dogs. The travel time from Reykjavík will vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Therefore, it is a good idea to book your accommodation in Reykjavík the night before your tour. Approximately one week before departure, you will receive more detailed directions to the location of your husky sledding tour.

Once you reach the base camp, your dog sledding adventure starts with meeting the dogs and saying hello to a bunch of friendly huskies. 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.

Tours are available all year. Dependent on the season, the tour takes either place on snow or dry land.

Husky Sledding Iceland – 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. After mounting the sled, 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 nature, take some great photos and give the dogs a good belly rub.

Husky Sledding Iceland – 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 attach tires to the sled. 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.
