Aventures plein air offers you a unique sled dog experience, in direct contact with the local fauna and flora!

Discover the trails specially made for dog sledding, next to Lake Morency in St Hippolyte, less than an hour from Montreal! This region is known for its natural resources and vast snow-covered areas in winter.

First, get to know your experienced mushers, who will pass on their knowledge about this beautiful discipline that is dog sledding. Then, it's time to meet your team, made up of huskies who can't wait to run! Then you leave for a change of scenery and an authentic getaway, not far from Montreal!

You have the choice between several rides :

- A 30 minutes introduction including a 10 minutes ride, where you learn about all aspects of the activity.

- A 2 hours immersion where you set off to discover the snowy and mountainous landscapes of the Laurentians region. Transport to the top of the mountain and back, drive your sled on trails for 1 hour, and visit the kennel with a hot drink.

- A half day in total immersion, for dog sledding enthusiasts!

So don't hesitate any longer, take part in the adventure, for an unforgettable dog-sledding getaway and above all, a must-see when you're in Quebec!

Chiens de traîneau. Parfaite activité pour les enfants, qui ont pu flatter les chiens après l’activité. Ça passe vite, mais c’est préférable lorsqu’il fait très froid.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time there, first-time experiencing dog sledding in the cold Quebec winter. There are plenty of other activities around the area as well, e.g. spa, snowmobile, ice fishing, hockey, sight-seeing, or simply walking on the frozen lake.

Wonderful excursion!

L'expérience est géniale mais le tour du lac a pris maxi 10 minutes alors que la publicité indique 45 minutes. Le reste du temps a été consacré à caresser les chiens et cinq minutes de formation à la conduite (en tout 25 mn au plus).

Perfect

The experience is great but one lap around the lake only took 10 minutes while the advertisement was 45 minutes. The rest of the time was spent petting the dogs and five minutes of driver training.

Super expérience !

Enceinte de 6 mois, les guides nous ont donné une équipe de chiens bien tranquille. Je suis tellement contente d’avoir fait l’activité avec mon 3 ans et mon mari.
