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 Myvatn. 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 they get from our guests.

Absolutely wonderful experience! Bergthora, the owner, the leader of the beautiful and kind Huskies was such an incredibly pleasant woman. I didn't own waterproof shoes and she gave me festival shoe covers to protect my sneakers. She was very informative, met and played with the...More

My father and I visited Snow Dogs in July and we had a blast! They were using a cart instead of a sled to operate without snow and it was so much fun and exciting! The dogs are very well trained and love to run...More

We had been looking forward to our time at Snow Dogs for months. We love dogs, but can't have any of our own where we live. We weren't sure how "sledding" would work in the summer, all the snow having melted by May, but we...More

This review is long overdue. I booked a snow sledding activity as I was near Lake Myvatn back in November 2016. Sæmundur and Bergþóra just started the company and it was unfortunate that the snow level was low in November. We had no choice but...More

We went with our two boys, 10 and 12. The older one's comment says enough: "that was the best day of my life". The sledding was great, and the welcome exceptional. So much more than just the sled ride too. We got to meet the...More

It is a small farm that can accommodate up to around 3 carts max, so you won’t have a chance for this great great thing if you come with a tour. We were a private group of 4 ppl, then 2 carts were arranged for...More

We had a wonderful time sledding with the dogs in the snow. Bergdora was a very nice guide, who told a lot about the dogs. The dogs are well trained and love to cuddle. One of our most remarkable activities during our stay in Iceland.

This 2nd generation family run husky kennel is AMAZING! Our friends thought we were crazy to pay 35 euro each to just pet dogs, and at the time we thought so too, but the experience was beyond worth it (if you love dogs, especially huskies)....More
