Guaranteed sensations and magic!

An immersive Experience  

This activity will surprise you with the richness of this vast wilderness you will be traveling by dog sled. Here you will see traces of animals, such as deer, beaver, fox… After an hour of sledding, you will have the privilege of visiting the first Athabascaes Wood Bison Reserve in Quebec, erected to protect these animals, which are listed as threatened. During this unique visit, you will be able to discover the mores and way of life of bison in their vast territory.

You will then make a second stop at one of our shelters, where the guide will prepare a hot drink and maple syrup or honey toast on the wood stove. Then we’ll be back for another hour of dog sled exploration to fill up with sensations! A warm chocolate will be available at our Welcome Lodge, so you can share your most beautiful impressions and then freely go see the dogs, walk around, enjoy the area before boarding the bus again and go back to Montreal !
