Dog Sledding

Long before the invention of the snowmobile, First Nations people were getting around by dog sledding. Later on, European explorers quickly adopted it because it was the most efficient means of transportation on a snow-covered surface. These days, the tradition of mushing continues, whether for pleasure or for races such as the famous Yukon Quest. This winter, experience a most magical and extraordinary adventure with dog sleds. Let huskies, malamutes and other large, playful pooches take you for a ride through the kilometers of wild and snowy trails of Lanaudière-Mauricie in a silence punctuated by a few barks.

To the sound of the steeds’ panting, we thread our way through the snow-covered landscapes of Authentic Quebec. You can play the role of dog leader for a few hours or a few days, with overnight stays in a tipi, cottage, or otherwise.
