Description

Explore the trails of the Quebec forest on your sled led by 6 Nordic dogs and experience a day in the life of a Musher!

The day will begin with a meet-and-greet of the pack: 77 Nordic dogs (including Huskies, Malamutes, Akitas and Samoyeds)! You can take the time to get to know them a little better, pet and cuddle these friendly and endearing companions. Your guide will then give you a small training lesson on navigating a sled.

In the morning, ride across typical landscapes of the Haute-Matawinie region on a 2-hour long circuit. For even more thrilling emotions and if weather allows, your guide will transport you across the frozen lake to a Prospector’s tent where a warm meal and wood fire will be waiting for you. Enjoy this friendly and warm break while you admire the Nordic landscape and refuel thanks to a hearty home-cooked meal. The dogs will also be taking a break near you. Once you have eaten and rested, the excursion continues with a new sledding trail of roughly 60 minutes. 

Options

The excursion takes place with 2 people per sled You may take turns navigating the sled. You may also choose to have a guide navigate your sled or to navigate your sled alone (for a supplement)
