Take a 45-minute or half-day ride in a sled and let the musher and his 11 Nordic dogs guide you through the Glières Plateau near Annecy.
Come explore the wide open spaces and landscapes of the Glières Plateau in Haute-Savoie with the professional mushers of D'Oumiak Aventure.
Short history: The Glières Plateau is known to have been a hot spot of the resistance during the Second World War. This is where Lieutenant Morel, the 1st leader of the maquis of Glières, is buried, and also where is located the memorial of the resistance of the Glières Plateau designed by the famous Emile Gilioli.
Programme for the 45-minute ride: You meet the musher at the bottom of the Glières Plateau, on the toboggan run. He will give you a little presentation of the dogs and the activity before you lay back in the sled. You go for a 45-minute ride on the wide open spaces of the Glières before returning to the departure point.
This option is only available during the week.
Programme for the half-day: You meet the musher at the Chemin des Eaux Noires in Thorens-Glières. He introduces you to the dogs and you participate in the hitching of dogs. You hop on the sled and leave for a 2-hour ride with a short break. You then return to the truck and participate in the storage of the facilities.
For people who are not very sporty, toddlers, or just for a first contact with the mushers' world, this dog sledding excursion is perfect!
