Activity description

Go on a dog sledding adventure on snow or land near Selfoss, located only one hour drive from Reykjavik.

Your driver will pick you up at your accomodation in Reykjavik to take you to Dogsledding Iceland's headquarters near Selfoss.

After the dogs are hitched up, you musher will guide the dogs along the trail. Your guide will explain how we train and steer the dogs. 

Sled dogs are meant for running and pulling. They enjoy it as much as you will enjoy being on the ride.

You will be surrounded by the wonderful Icelandic nature, hear and ask anything about sled dogs. Half way during the tour, you will take a break to take pictures with the dogs and offer them a good belly-rub.

Next, you will return to the kennel to meet all the dogs: Greenlandic dogs, Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Huskies. 

At Hólmasel, there is a great view to the largest glacier river in Iceland called Þjórsá (Thjorsa), to the Westman Islands, Eyjafjallajökull and the volcano Hekla, on a clear day.
