Dog sledding is a special way to take a trip on the snow pulled by man’s best friend: dogs! In Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo, you can experience these lovable animals at work in their natural woodland habitat.
During winter in Madonna di Campiglio, the Athabaska school organizes dog sledding trips with their huskies at Piana di Nambino. The school organizes: dog sledding with an instructor, one or few days with the sled dogs (for families, schools, or other groups), courses for mushers to learn how to steer a dog sled (7 days or 2 weekends).
