Dog Sledding

In Alpe Cimbra you can experience the awesome sport of dog sledding, a new and extremely fascinating way to discover nature in perfect harmony with beautiful Huskies.
When dogs realize it's time to tow the sledge, they wag their tails, fidget and rear up; their sound echoes in the silence of the beautiful Alpine environment. When they start, it seems they want to reach a goal that escapes the man's gaze.

You will definitely be fascinated.

Moreover, imagine what thrilling emotions can feel a child sitting in the basket of the sledge or, driving it by himself (from 8 years old)!

Night-time excursions, when only the moon and the stars illuminate the path, are even more amazing.

Exciting trips, for adults and children, where they can try themselves driving a sleigh drawn by a dog's dingy with the instructor for a magnificent adventure immersed in a unique winter environment.
