Snow dogs Iceland

We are Snow Dogs :) a group of 25 Siberian Husky sled dogs that love to play.   We live in our open kennel with our Icelandic local family on a farm close to Lake Mývatn, North Iceland.  480 km(300 miles) from Reykjavík

 

Come and experience how much we love to pull a sled, on snow in the Winter, and on our special off road wheel carts in summer.   You are always welcome to come and visit us at our kennel and give us belly rubs, meet our pups and learn about dog sledding.

 

How many people go on a sled?

Usually 2 customers/sled and one guide.   Families with children under 12 years go together on one bigger family sled.

 

How much time to we spend on the sled and what distance will we cover?

Time can vary quite a bit depending on the dogs, people, weather and trail conditions. So on average, the 2 hour tour is out for about 45-60 minutes on the trail and covers about 7-8 km.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT GOOGLE MAPS DOES NOT HAVE OUR ROAD IN ITS SYSTEM. PLEASE FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS BELOW FOR THE FINAL SECTION OF THE DRIVE TO OUR FARM.

 

From Akureyri:

Drive road nr.1 from Akureyri for about 80 km. Instead of taking a left turn like you do if you continue driving on road nr. 1, you continue straight ahead on road 848 for about 1,5 km. Make a right turn when you see the sign "Baldursheimur road 849".   Continue on that road for 5 km than you will see the sign "Heiði" and make a right turn there and drive to our farm about 3,5 km.  There is a small bridge on the way with a gate.

Don´t worry if the gate is closed it is because of sheep.

Please open the gate and close behind you.
