Dog sled stay Mézenc - Montagne Ardéchoise - Massif Central

Hiking atmosphere of the Far North
3 days / 2 nights - Gift idea
2017 - 2018 Season

Sled dogs team in underwoods

Impatient to leave, the dogs of the team are excited and let you know by barking, jumping... You finish loading the sled as the musher gives you the last advice before the start... With its vast open spaces that stretch to infinity, its deciduous and coniferous forests, the plateau of the Massif Central are a perfect place to learn how to ride a dog sled. Through this discipline, you will discover both a natural atmosphere and unique sensations. And then, you will probably understand a little better the need for physical expenditure of these dogs who will be your companions during this stay.

So don't miss the start, it will be difficult for you to join the team !

They went there, they came back and they talk about it :

"I keep a magnificent memory of this weekend. a "sportive" experience but mostly humane with warm meetings, beautiful landscapes, wonderful people, a real parenthesis of happiness !!
... To be recommended !! Or to be repeated !!!!! Kind regards and thank you. Régine "

ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS: 

 

 

- Proposed accomodations : guest houses or gîte.

- Lunch : Picnics

- Dinner : "local flavours"

 

 

LEVEL: 

You will be supervised by a graduate musher who, in all safety, will share with you his passion for his activity and his complicity with his companions. This stay requires a regular physical condition : regular practice of any sport is of course advised (walking, jogging or bicycling). It sometimes is necessary to walk a little bit at some passages to relieve the dog team.

 

 

It goes without saying it is recommended to like dogs. It is advised to not give "the leftovers of your cake" to the dogs, only the musher gives food to the dogs (but he will tell you all this!).

 

 

COME BY TRAIN: 

We are all aware of the environmental impact of our car trips. Going to holidays produce a significant amount of CO2 notably when we drive for a fair distance for a change of scenery...

So if the "light mobility" tempts you, the Puy en Velay stations and the Valence stations are here to welcome you. Then, the junction could be made with a rent vehicle or a taxi cab.

Simulate your train trip or contact us for any complementary information.
