When your children meet the dogs there is magic and excitement in the air, dreams of adventure in the frozen north. The dog sled is a very practical means of transport, ideal for a trip through the forests whilst they learn all the techniques needed to become real mushers. It is a fabulous experience for both young and old.

The strengths

  • An introduction to nordic activities for your children
  • A real complicity between the specially trained dogs and the mushers
  • An unusual way to explore the the mountains and nature

The 'Wild Kid's Club', as its name suggests, is a completely new nature activity club for children. It opens this winter in Bareges with the aim to introduce children between 5 and 10 years to the universe of nordic activities. In a safe enclosed area with its own tepee, your children can discover what its like to be a trapper from the Great North. They will learn how to harness the huskies, how to steer, brake, slide and to get the dogs to obey vocal commands, to lie down to get up...
Just like indigineous children they will learn dog sledding from two experience mushres, in this case state registered instructors, bu that is not all. The activities are adapted to the weather : building igloos, snow shoe walks, following animal tracks, learning all about the mountains in winter. It is a real introduction to nature, and maybe it will awaken a real taste for adventure.
