I come from Barcelonnette. The passion for sled dogs has grown in my heart since I have read Paul Emile Victor’s books. In his books he was perfectly able to put the reader in his universe. I was imagining him surviving just with his Greenland dogs team and food on the sledge.
He explained very well how exciting it is for Human to meet different people, run across wild nature and reconnect with it.
So I have done my own sled dogs team with malamutes, alaskans, huskies and Greenland dogs, with whom I have been twice to Arctic Circle (trip to Arctic in 2013 and 2014).
Still thinking about auroras, it’s a pleasure for me to share with you my nordic attraction in the wild and authentic Ubayan height valley, near to Barcelonnette.
It’s very important for us to welcome you and make this experience unique and magic.
Dogs are the center of our life, we will share with you our dogs team lifestyle, the specifics of every type of nordic dog, their life style, what they eat, how they are.
You will be set in the very comfortable sleds, adapted to the number of passengers.
The team of sled dogs is adapted to the weight of the sled, that’s why we ask your weight when you book a trip.
The trip is running along safe route.

We went up yesterday for the first sled ride of the season for Coralie and Paul's dogs. Speeding along through the snow was just fantastic. We were lucky enough to have already spent a week with these wonderful animals. This gave us an insight into how they lived, how they were trained and cared for, and the intricacies of putting together a sled dog team. Such a professional setup, and lots of fun. These guys are passionate about what they do, love every one of their dogs, and both have a wealth of experience which they are happy to share. My partner said it was one of the best moments of her life. Highly recommended for anyone who is thinking about a sled dog ride. Thanks!
