We loved the GoHusky hike! The couple were extremely kind and told us everything about their dogs and every dog loved seeing new people! The hike was very easy and everyone in our group loved it!

Amazing husky experience, do it if you can

We were met at the pickup point (cruise terminal) by Gunni on time and were taken to begin our hike at his home (15 min drive). On arrival we were greeted by howls of delight from the husky pack and were given a tour of their home. We then picked our husky by lottery after Gunni assessed our abilities and were equipped with our harnesses. Our excitement mounted as we set off on our guided hike around the grounds and local area. The hardest thing was listening to the howls of disappointment of those left behind but were reassured that the lottery was conducted in such a way that they all got their turn in due course and those left behind had their own dog handler and adventure playground to amuse them. Gunni then shared his passion for the huskies and gave us an account of how his business had evolved all whilst in the stunning backdrop of the local area. We even met some local Icelandic horses who appreciated our attempts to hand feed them some grass. After returning home after approx 1 hour we were offered a hot drink and shown the many awards that the huskies had won and peace descended and we were accepted into the pack! Gunni even showed us a selection of apparel made from spun husky hair which was recycling at its most ingenious. We were finally driven back to the cruise port and sadly said goodbye. We will always treasure our time with Gunni and his pack of gorgeous huskies and would not hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone who is looking for a different excursion which left us wanting more. Apparently in winter you can be taken on a guided sledge ride around the grounds which would be even more amazing than our summer hike which was equally enthralling. Thank you Gunni, YNWA!!

WOW, I´m just blushing 🥰but I´m glad you liked the visit. Me and my dogs (as well as my wife, when she is home) love having guests over. Take care.

BEST Tour Ever!

This was truly the BEST Tour we have ever taken. On this tour, we traveled with our 6 kids, ages 7+. Each one of them loved the tour. The huskies are adorable, sweet, and so fun. The hike was amazing with the huskies. We absolutely loved Maria and Gunni (their owners). They were so kind, fun, and just plain great. They made us feel like family at their house, and with their lovely huskies. Seriously take this tour, you will not regret it.

Thank you 😍 We felt quite challenged getting family with five kids under 12 years old coming to visit but your kids were so well behaved and everything went so well 😊 Really loved having you guys.

The dogs are amazing…felt a little sad we could only take 3 dogs with us, the rest seemed so disappointed to be left behind!

Right from when Gunni picked us up (exactly as arranged) this adventure was a thorough mix of fun, friendship and learning about the Huskies. We went at the beginning of summer and had an individual Husky to escort us on our trail through the woods and shore. Such a beautiful setting. We left as friends so that says it all. Thanks Gunni and Maria.

Thanks. That's one of the best things about inviting guests to meet our dogs, you chat with people all over the world and makes new friends

This was an amazing experience! A must do if you’re visiting Iceland. We got to meet and spend the morning with this lovely couple & their 18 huskies. The hike was beautiful. The views were breathtaking! We enjoyed good conversation and cocoa after the hike. We truly recommend this tour!!
