Historically a mode of transportation used to travel into hostile or hard-to-get-to areas, dogsledding is now making a name for itself as a recreational sport for tourists. Suitable for all types of travellers, it makes a great activity for families, groups of friends or couples, or a fun corporate team-building exercise.
Accessible to adults and children ages three and up, the dogsledding activity at Baluchon, Éco-villégiature is more than a simple tour. This adventure will have you exploring the vast estate on snow-covered trails as the team of sled dogs gleefully races across the snow, cutting through the air. What’s more, your guide will provide an introduction to the sport and teach you basic mushing techniques. And when your guide tells you about the dogs’ training, nutrition and physical strength, you’ll realize the incredible bond that exists between the musher and his pack.
Since the dogsledding activity comes with access to the trails for the whole day, why not make the most of it and spend the night in one of the four inns on the Baluchon estate? Treat yourself to cozy accommodations after a day of dogsledding, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. There are also a few heritage buildings on the estate that give it extra charm and character.
A thrilling adventure is just around the corner. Mush! Mush!
