Reykjavik – Dog Sledding under the Northern Lights
The dramatic landscapes of Iceland hold a special place for any couple who is wanting to explore its magical scenery. It awakens a hunger within you to experience life at its fullest. Your first glimpses of Iceland’s wonders will come when you arrive at Keflavik Airport. Upon your arrival, you will be embraced by the snow-capped mountains and long, lazing rivers that look as if they have been drawn with a knife. Your private transfer will greet you and escort you to meet the dogs for your dog sledding journey around Langjokull glacier and the Golden Circle. During this journey, you can snuggle under the thick woolen blankets with your loved one as your musher leads you towards the second largest glacier in Iceland: Langjokull.
A fine spray of snow may tickle your cheeks as your team of dogs pulls you along the 361 square mile glacier. From here, your musher will guide you to the Geysir Geothermal Field to view the tremendous power of geysers that spew scalding water into the air. It is a shocking but thrilling opportunity to witness Iceland’s elemental power at its best. As you settle back into the dog sled and venture towards Thingvellir National Park, which is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site on the mainland, you can reach out and touch the winter wonderland of Iceland as it passes by you.
The pure beauty of Thingvellir lies within the dried magma fields that are covered in a blanket of bright and soft green moss and surrounded by glacial springs and jagged mountain peaks. Standing in its presence will take your breath away in one glance. The last stop of your day will be at Gullfoss, which is Iceland’s beloved and most famous waterfall, where the powerful rapids inject energy into everything that they touch. On your way to your luxury accommodation, you can look up at the skies and watch the glowing green and purple northern lights perform their dance for you. It will be a sight to behold as you are warm and cozy under the blanket with your loved one.
