The second option is a flight to the mountains with a landing at the top of the Massif de Charlevoix and from there explore the forests of the Massif by dog sled! Whichever you choose, the experience will be impressive and memorable!
The start of these adventures is at the Héli-Charlevoix reception desk. The return will be made by land with our shuttle.

An adventure tale
Departure time is approaching. They feel it, they know it, excitement rises. The dogs bark and leap with pleasure. They’ll be running: their greatest passion!
One by one they take their place at the starting line. The strongest first, the fastest next, And lastly, heading proudly to the front of the pack, the leading dog. Each place has its respective role. With a mixed display of discipline and impatience, they wait. Mushers take their place. Feet on the brakes, they’re excitement is often as palpable as that of the pack. Foot on the break.
Departure time is approaching, the tension is at its peak! Hop ! Let’s go! The guide gives the signal and takes the lead. The teams follow behind. Reaching full speed, mushers must keep control of the sled and trust their dogs. Within a few seconds they become a team.
The dogs rush forward like cannonballs. Up to 40 km/h, what a thrill! Their tremendous power is felt as they bolt through the snow.
Quickly, all is calm again.
Ouf ! Phew! The sled reaches its cruising speed. A small trot. It’s time to enjoy the ride!
Turn right, head downhill, climb up… In the lead, the guide demonstrates how to position yourself on the sled. It’s starting to feel comfortable, and beautiful synergy is formed with the pack. The dogs are giving us their very best.
Contemplating nature, the majestic boreal forest covered in a sheet of white, you witness winter in all its splendor. You hear the sound of the dogs’ paws in the snow, their breath, and the small wooden crackles of the sled…
Wow ! What a privilege to live this unique moment. What an emotional storm! Pride, wholeness, serenity, intense joy for some, gratitude for others… It is now clear: driving your sled in the Boreal forest,
You are the Reine et le Millionnaire!
A wonderful experience with an incredible musher.
The dogs live and breath health and happiness.
The guide and the entire personnel are passionate, warm and understanding.
A tremendous amount of love shared with all these dogs who were so nice and affectionate. We met a man who was very competent, in love with each of these magnificent beasts, and engaged in making sure that we took full advantage of this experience. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
