The beauty of the Icelandic regions can be appreciated like no other way when you are on a dog sled. Most tours last for about an hour and in that hour you will take away a lifetime of wonderful memories. Winter tours provide the cold and snow experience of a life time. Some summer tours are on a trolley with wheels pulled by the dogs while some can be on a sled.
