Andreas and Noah took great care of us and there was lots of time for dog petting and photos. The sledding itself is actually quite physical! You are a part of the dog team and expected to actively participate! Had a wonderful time, would absolutely recommend. Thanks!

Never did dog sledding before.....Andreas and Noe' were very informative about what to expect and how to treat the (special) dogs. It was an exciting experience. Was expecting an "open" field run, but was on a 2 mile strip of "street" (maybe because of the amount of snow). Time actually on the sled was about 15 minutes. Expensive for the... More

I cannot possibly speak any more highly of Inspiration Iceland and its owners Andreas and Ulrica, and their staff! Booking with Inspiration Iceland allows you a local's view into majestic northern Iceland. The couple has built a beautiful and welcoming Wellness Center for yoga retreats and the like and also offer dog sledding with their packs of Alaskan Malamutes and... More

This was an amazing experience. Andreas and his team were helpful, professional and really cared and looked after the dogs. We went with a group of 5 and went in groups of 3 (2 groups of 2 and one solo). They were aweome at teaching what we needed to know to mush ourselves and follow nearby to help out too.... More

Wow, what an amazing experience! Andreas and Noé were great; friendly, funny, professional and passionate. Their knowledge of the dogs and how their personalities and strengths add to the team, is something to admire. The dogs were of course fantastic; friendly and full of energy, just wanting to run and be active. I would highly recommend this tour!

What an amazing experience! I was a bit nervous beforehand, but the guys took time to really talk us through what to do. Andreas skied ahead the whole way, keeping an eye on me and giving me tips. The dog-sledding itself was such a rush, there's nothing like it! The dogs were super-friendly and enthusiastic, too. My favourite part of... More

From the beginning to the end, the team was professional, efficient, friendly and fun. Andreas went to great lengths to ensure each rider remained safe and enjoyed themselves. The dogs were so friendly and spirited. We adored the spa package after to top it off. This experience was without a doubt one of the most incredible of our life's !... More

Andreas and his team were absolutely amazing. They made my trip to Iceland one to remember! They took the time to share stories with us, teach us about Icelandic culture, and share their passion and enthusiasm about Iceland with us. Spending time with them was seriously one of my most favorite parts of the trip! Because of them we were... More
