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!
