Dogsledding Iceland is the first and still only professional dogsledding kennel in Reykjavik area, having provided dogsledding tours throughout the highlands and glaciers of Iceland since 1998. Working with Greenlandic dogs, traditionally used by the Inuit people of Greenland, they provide people with an experience unique in the world of dogsledding. Greenlandic dogs are tough, hardy and stubborn sled dogs known for their strength and ability to resist any kind of extreme weather conditions. Working through anything with their tails wagging, not bothered by what mother nature throws at them.
By using this unique breed of dogs this company offers people an insight to the traditional uses of sled dogs.
Over the past few years, DogSledding Iceland has also rescued a few Siberian Huskies, with their slight build, these arctic dogs work well with the Greenlandic dogs, enabling the teams to run at a faster pace than usual freight dogs.
Alaskan huskies are the latest addition to the kennel, bringing their high efficiency to the pack. Such a diverse combination of breeds gives guest a well-rounded introduction to the world of sled dogs.
The main concern of the company is always the well-being of the dogs and therefore you will find them moving around the island always looking for the best conditions for the dogs. These people have a serious passion and addiction to mushing and live with their dogs wherever they set up camp. Groups are kept small to ensure a personal experience, so make sure to book well in advance, and remember, whatever tour you choose, belly rubs are mandatory!
