The sledge trips with dogs have their origin in the need to move quickly through the vast frosty extensions of the northernmost countries.
The mountainous regions in general and the Pyrenees in particular, with their abrupt geography, do not have a historical tradition in the use of this method. However, with the massive arrival of tourism, the dog sled ride is being developed by spectacular itineraries perfectly adapted to the activity.
The musher or sled guide leads a group of Nordic dogs, conformed by breeds like Alaska Malamute, Samoyed or Siberian Husky. These animals are endowed with exceptional resistance and have an innate instinct to pull the sled.
The activity of the "Mushing" allows the participant to enjoy a ride through incredible natural landscapes, with the company of animals that are now part of the winter landscape of the Andorran mountain.
In the ski resorts of Grandvalira and Vallnord there are flat circuits with wide extensions of terrain to practice of this sport. They are ideal places for dogs specially trained by the "Musher", who directs and controls at all times this endearing and entertaining activity.
