Quebec's wide-open spaces lend themselves wonderfully to dogsledding excursions. Take a seat on a sled driven by an experienced guide or opt for the privilege of driving your own sled, once you’ve mastered the basics, by following a musher who will guide the first dog team. Whether you are on your own, with your sweetheart or with family, treat yourself to this unique experience with man's best friend!

Please remember that travelling outside of your own region is not recommended.
