Dog Sledding near Akureyri

Northern Iceland is one of the best places to enjoy a thrilling and scenic experience common in the Nordic countries: dogsledding. With a pack of eight or so loyal pups leading the way, you'll sled through the idyllic countryside between Akureyri and Lake Mývatn. This route stretches about 6 miles (10 km) in Iceland's snow-covered landscapes, with plenty of opportunities to stop for pictures of the scenery and your hard-working crew.
