Canirando
‘Canirando’ is sports hiking harnessed to a husky. Evasion Nordique also offers educational trips exploring the world of sled dogs.
Philippe has adapted dog-sledding to suit a different mountain season and made alterations to his equipment (replacing sled skates with wheels) so his favourite activity can be enjoyed all year round.
