Iceland: Dog Sleeding

We spent a night in a Reykjavik Airbnb between our week in South Iceland and our week in East Iceland. We needed a real bed, hot showers with clean towels, wifi and a place to defrost. And then this life of 24 hour "luxury " led to another night in Reykjavik so we did a day trip and went dog sledding. This was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity because I have done it and I don't need to do it again. I feel bad for saying that but it is kind of true because it is a very expensive hour. We got on the sled and made circles in a snow field while learning Icelandic dog sledding commands and driving straight over the dog poop. Yup, the dogs pooped on the run and the sled (with us on the sled) ran right over it. Anyone who has been dog sledding before, can probably relate to our initial shock when we found this out. However, there is nothing like a navy blue one piece snowsuit and learning about each dogs style of poop. By the end of the ride we knew what dog pooped by just looking at it. FYI.
