Learn to drive a team of 3 or 4 dogs and set off for a mountain hike on the snow-covered slopes. An unforgettable half-day to discover the pleasures of dog sledding!

It's the ideal way to discover the joys of this activity before embarking on the long treks.

Then, depending on the group's progress, you'll gain altitude on a forest track before heading back down to the kennels.

General presentation

Learn about the world of sled dogs and discover the life of a musher for an evening. It's the ideal way to meet the dogs and learn all about this special way of travelling and the dogs themselves. You'll have the chance to interact with the dogs (get to know them, equip them and feed them) and, of course, take a little ride in the sled.

Level required

No experience of sledging is necessary, just a desire to discover this fabulous world and be prepared to brave the cold to quench your thirst for knowledge about Nordic dogs.

Course of a session :

Welcome at the kennel at 5.30pm.

Meet the dogs and the musher, and learn how to equip the dogs that will make up your team.

Once the dogs are ready, all that's left to do is climb into the sled for a 20-30 minute ride, an opportunity to see how the dogs work.

Back at the kennels, you'll help the musher remove the harnesses, water the dogs and give them a pat on the back.

Then it's time to give the dogs a breather to ease their excitement before lunch, where you'll share a hot drink and answer any questions you may have.

Finally, you'll help feed the dogs and return them to their respective pens for a good night's sleep.


The minimum age for this activity is 5 years (it's cold at the kennels and the session is too long for the little ones)

This is the ideal activity for families, or if you're not physically fit to drive a sled but really want to discover the world of mushing.however, we do not accept pregnant women or people who are injured, as sledging can be a shaky experience, and you don't want to be sitting comfortably in the back of a car.)
