Whether it is a  half-day or 1 to 3 days excursion, the supervised by qualified guides, Alexandra, Jean-François & Tobie, you will discover a legendary means of transport and appreciate the submissiveness of the huskies.

The departure take place in a very turbulent manner. One by one, the dogs are removed from the kennels to be harnessed. They’re so excited, nervous and impatient that they cannot wait to take to the woods. Showing their pleasure, they are attached to the sleds one at a time. This commotion always accompanies the harnessing ceremonial. After the departure, the dogs settle down and the sleds resume their normal rhythm. Well secured to the sled, luggage ande passengers calmly continue the rest of the excursion.
