Dog sledding

Dog Sledding experience by Lake Mývatn, North Iceland.

Get a taste of the wonderful winter sport of dog sledding!   It is great to be out on the trail with our amazing sled dogs in our beautiful nature by Lake Mývatn.

We will instruct you in the basics of driving a dog team, and then introduce you to your team of Siberian Huskies.   All of our dogs are friendly and love the exercise and attention the get from our guests.

Tours have 2 clients and one guide per sled.  After instructions you’re off exploring our trail close to Lake Mývatn. Take a turn as a musher driving the team with your guide or relax as a passenger.

You will be out on the trail with the dogs for approximately 1 hour. There will be plenty of opportunities for taking pictures on the tour with the dogs and the great landscape around lake Mývatn.

In late April and May when snow is melting from the area around our farm and Kennel at Heiði.   We will move our tours to higher grounds were there is good snow.  We will inform our guest where the new location is the day before departure.

Best enjoyed by people in at least average physical shape.

Equipment: Geo Travel will provide you with warm overalls and gloves if you need.

Please dress warm and bring a pair of sunglasses.
