Let your child’s sense of adventure off the leash

Join one of Trentino’s dog-sledding teams for a taste of life in the wilderness

There are so many ways a winter holiday can stretch the minds of your kids, and furnish them with unforgettable experiences – but dog-sledding is one of the best. We have three sledding centres in Trentino, and they offer everything from night-time adventures, dashing through snow by moonlight, to the chance to take control of your own dog team. 

Dogsledding Athabaska - Madonna di Campiglio

During the ski season, the Athabaska teams operate on the Piana di Nambino near Madonna di Campiglio. For a first taste of sledding, you can jump on board a sled for a 4km tour: but for those who want to take control of their own team, the company also offers a two-hour training session, as well as an extended four-day course. The company also runs night-time sledding trips from Madonna di Campiglio to the Malga Mondifrà mountain restaurant for dinner.

Windshot Sleddog Adventure - Alpe Cimbra

Based at Passo Coe, close to Folgaria, Windshot offers three different mushing experiences: a 15-minute ride for 3-6 year olds; a first mushing experience for 8-14 year olds on a two-dog sled; and, for adults, a chance control a team of three to four dogs.

Husky and Scuola Italiana Sleddog - Val di Sole

At Passo Tonale, this sledding centre – home to 70 huskies, offers sledding tours and musher training for both adults and children.
