Since 1996, Grandes Jorasses Adventures s.r.l. has been organizing exciting tour groups in Valle d‘Aosta and spectacular dog sledding sport events: dog sledding excursions.
Your first time dog sledding
Experience the thrill of driving a team of sled dogs in the unspoilt nature in the Valle d’Aosta while admiring the Mont Blanc, accompanied and assisted by musher Fabrizio Lovati and specialized guides.
After a few short and simple theoretical concepts taught by your instructors, you will personally drive a sled pulled by 3-4 huskies, and experience the charm and difficulty of this sport.
Usually a guide leads the group and adults follow, each with their own sled with 3-4 dogs. The excursion lasts about half an hour (it depends on meteorological conditions, the texture of the snow, and how good a pupil is).
Children between 4 and 6 ride in the sled with a guide. Usually, starting at 7 they can drive alone like adults, to their great satisfaction!
At the end of the excursion, you will be offered a hot chocolate or a drink at a shelter adjacent to the track and you will learn all you want about the world of dog sledding.
Courmayeur a flat circuit is being readied in the Entrevès plain at the foot of Mont Blanc chain, with rendevous point at the Val Veny cableway, this circuit is used exclusively for company incentives and events.
The excursions will operate in all weather conditions. We recommend wearing waterproof and durable footwear (after-ski or trekking boots), winter clothes, gloves, earmuffs or snow hats, sunglasses. Don’t’ forget your camera. At what age can you get started.

Younger children get a ride on the guide’s sled, whereas ages 9 and older can try on their own if they choose the Your first time dog sledding program.
