Snow dogs is a small family run company in Mývatn, North Iceland that specializes in dog sledding tours. We are located at a farm called Heiði, one of Iceland highest houses in Iceland, which is great for dog sledding tourism as we have a lot of snow during winter season. Our doglsledding on snow  season runs from November till May.


We run a small dog sledding company with only 20-25 Siberian Huskies and therefore we manage to give each one of our dogs more attention and greater care. The wellbeing of our dogs is very important to us and we want them to feel good in the Kennel. The Husky dogs are unchained and loose together in small groups with plenty of space for exercise and to  socialize with each other..


All our dogs are pure breed Siberian Husky and most of them are from Múla ræktun ( but also we do foster for short terms Siberian Husky that have needed a temporary home. It´s wonderful to see how our dogs change when they have enough exercise and are part of the pack. Our dogs are all very friendly and love to run and pull plus attention and a belly rub is always something they like.


Our dogs mostly come from 2 separate litters, the first one was from Atlas and Þruma, with total of 6pubbiess and they are all now big part of our operation. Atlas has been our most prolific dog sled dog and was for a good reason we chose him for breeding. He also loves people more than most dogs do. Þruma is very clever, beautiful and really easy to work with and a good sled dog. We are very excited about our young dogs,  they are great sled dogs but also delightful to be around and very beautiful.


The second litter is from Atlas and Tara and we also got 6 puppies there. They are now teenagers and almost ready to join our dog sledding family for next winter 2017-2018. Tarahassbeen  our bestteamk leader, very focused, hard working and a wonderful to have. Also she is our nicest dog to be around.
