Don’t know much about mushing?
It is estimated that this activity was first practised around 2000 BC, when native Siberian and North American tribes used dog sleds to transport goods. In 1534, the Canadian peninsula of Gaspé was invaded by French soldiers. To defuse tensions between the colonisers and the Iroquois tribes, some of the French stayed to learn their language and culture. It was at this time that the first European mushers appeared and later introduced the sport to the old continent.
This ancestral practice is a form of transport, mostly used in Nordic countries, where draught dogs (usually huskies) are used to travel through snowy areas on sleds. Today mushing is also a competitive sport, at events such as Pirena, but above all it is a fun and unique mountain activity.
You must be itching to try this experience for yourself?
You can do this activity as a family with children aged 1 and over (children under 3 years old are accompanied by an adult and the activity is free for them). Every child under 11 years of age must be accompanied by 1 adult who also takes part in the activity (only one child per adult is allowed). Children aged 14 and over can drive the sled if they wish.
