The Mahikan Dog Sledding Adventure Winter Holiday in Quebec
Mahikan: the wolf who fears nothing, neither other beasts, nor distance, nor cold; not even the isolation of his territory.
Journey across frozen lakes in complete silence will evoke in you the greatest feelings: those of freedom and sobriety. Come and discover the snow partridge, the fox, the lynx, and the mahikan along the trail and immerse yourself in tranquillity, beauty and the grandeur of the Quebecois forest. Travel around Quebec's splendid Saguenay region as your dogs guide you over frozen lakes and rivers and through snowy forests. Accommodation is in a variety of hotels, inns and arctic tents.
Here's a day-by-day guide to your itinerary. Feel free to ask us to add other days or ideas and excursions by adding them to your wishlist, so we can give you the best price.View full itinerary
