An outing in a dog sled, an unforgettable experience

Payolle and La Mongie are some of the best spots to go dog sledding in the Pyrenees mountains.




Payolle for an excursion into the heart of wild, wide open snow-covered spaces, on the plateaus of untouched snow, through a forest of spectacular fir trees…

La Mongie

 La Mongie for an outing around the resort, after the day’s skiing, with a view of the resort which lights up at nightfall.

Want to take the reins?

Is the simple introduction to dog sledding not enough for you? Do you want more?

The professional mushers in Grand Tourmalet have plenty more to say and will be thrilled to invite you even further into their world. You can choose to head off for a half-day or a day trip or for even longer if you’re a real adventurer!

If you are in good shape, you can also take part in an introduction to mushing and drive the dog sled. Engaging your whole body, this sport requires balance but also an ability to create a bond of trust with the dogs. Because here, the motor is the power and astounding vitality of the dogs and their joy and excitement to get moving. But it is also and above all the authority of the musher and the main team member: the lead dog! This authority is based on a very strong emotional bond forged by daily care and petting.
