You’ll also get to learn more about the dogs of the pack and the roles they each have.

Another option is cani-karting at Centre de Vacances - Ferme 5 Étoiles. This activity with dogs harnessed to a kart allows dog lovers to experience a thrilling ride, while also giving the pack a great opportunity to train for winter and dogsledding season. Race down the trails and get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a musher leading a pack of sled dogs.

There is also the cani-scooter, available at La Reine et le Millionnaire. This activity includes a training session before you head out, an hour on the scooter and a visit to the kennel. Step on the scooter and let the magnificent northern dogs bring you on the trails through the boreal forest.
