Your Musher will explain to you the basics in dog sledding and how to work with these amazing dogs. You also have the opportunity to help mush the sled with one of our guides if you want to try it.

After the dog sledding adventure there is plenty of time at the kennel to meet, cuddle and take pictures with the lovely Siberian Huskies.

    Note that sometimes the dogs get very loud when we are about to leave for the Dog sled ride, they just want to run not wait….

    Coming to Iceland in the winter it can come in handy to have warm clothing good shoes and goggles.
