On this tour, you will get to know a great team of Siberian Huskies and go dogsledding close to the Mývatn area.

We meet at Heiði farm, where you will be instructed about the basics of driving a dog team, and will be introduced to your team of Siberian Huskies. All the dogs are friendly and love the exercise and attention they get from the guests.

Tours have 2 clients and one guide per sled. After instructions you’re off exploring our trail close to Lake Mývatn. Take a turn as a musher driving the team with your guide or relax as a passenger.

You will be out on the trail with the dogs for approximately 1 hour. There will be plenty of opportunities for taking pictures on the tour with the dogs and the great landscape around lake Mývatn.

In late April and May when snow is melting from the area around the farm and Kennel at Heiði, the tours will be moved to higher grounds where there is good snow.  The guests will be informed about the new location the day before departure.
