Dog sledding was organized by him as the highlight of the final day after hanging out at the Geysir and checking out the Mid-Atlantic Ridge earlier.
We drove all the way into the sledding area on our 4×4 vehicle, walked towards the huts where they kept the equipment.
Introducing the dogs
I was under the impression that the main dogs were usually huskies! (I love huskies)
The musher then explained that the greenlandic dogs were much stronger and they can withstand harsher temperatures. Apparently, 6 degree celsius was considered too warm for these dogs.
We thought we were well-prepared.
The staff asked us to add a thermal suit on (modelled by the man). What??
It was a damn good decision. I was so glad I did cause I was mad freezing throughout the sledding!
Ready, Get set, Go!
All wrapped up and ready to go 🙂
There was a mid-way stop, where the humans could have some time with the pups. I was totally mobbed.
The pups love it when you give them a good belly rub.
Spending time with the dogs was awesome, so was the glorious sunset that greeted us.
Summary of the activity
Cost: $210 per person
Duration: 90mins, includes briefing and dressing up. The real sledding time is around 45 to 60 minutes.
Attire: It’s awfully cold during the sledding even on a sunny March late afternoon, so wear your warmest attire.
