Siberian Husky Cart Ride in Iceland

Go on a true summer arctic adventure with a Siberian Husky Cart Ride from Snow Dogs. Come and experience a dry land dog-cart tour with their beautiful Siberian Huskies and visit their un-chained Siberian Husky Kennel at their farm Vallholt, between Akureyri and  Lake Mývatn, North Iceland. Two guests and a Musher from Snow Dogs share a cart pulled by 9-14 Siberian Husky dogs. Your dogs will pull you on a trail of approximately 2.5 km in the beautiful and remote area of Iceland.  Note that the trail is a little bit bumpy!

What do I need to bring with me for this sled dog experience?

You don’t need to bring much with you; basically everything is provided for you. However, it’s recommended that you do bring sunglasses, sunblock and warm clothing.

Your Musher will explain to you the basics of dog sledding and how to work with these amazing dogs; especially how to train and work with them in the summer conditions. The trail will take about 15 to 20 minutes and then afterwards you will go into the kennel and meet the dogs and of course, give them a cuddle. So total time of visit is approximately 1.5 hours with the kennel visit. There will be opportunities to take pictures of the dogs! This is a unique opportunity to see the summer training process for our sled dogs. Note that the tour is not suitable for people with back problems or pregnant women. Sometimes the dogs get very loud when we are about to leave for the Cart ride, they just want to run, not wait…
