Dogsledding Iceland was founded in 1997 under the name Dog Stream Tours. It then changed over to Dogsledding Iceland in 2007 when the ownership was transferred to Siggi.
We are the only dog sledding tour operator that runs tours all year round in the South Coast of Iceland.
We have been operating from many different locations in Iceland (Langjökull, Mýrdalsjökull glacier, Hólmasel, Húsafell, among others) as for today we are operating in Hólmasel, just one hour away from Reykjavík.
At Hólmasel we have a great view to the largest glacier river in Iceland called Þjórsá (Thjorsa), to the Westman Islands, Eyjafjallajökull and the volcano Hekla, on a clear day.
