Dog Sledding in Mongolia

Even though dogs have been an integral part of Mongolian nomadic life, only now has dog sledding become known in Mongolia thanks to Joel Rauzy, the experienced mountain guide and sled dog driver or Musher, from the Pyrenees mountains who set off to discover Mongolia, the last place in the world were there is snow but no dog sledding! He will be your guide on our expeditions.

Winter is hard in Mongolia, hard but beautiful! Each winter temperatures can fall to minus 40 Celsius, making Ulaanbaatar the coldest capital in the world. But usually day temperatures would be around minus 10 during the times when we invite you to our dog sledding adventure. It is fascinating to experience such a continental climate, where air pressure is high, the sun is shining all day and all the nomads you meet will love to see you, a most appreciated guest in the middle of the winter!

Our program either combines dog sledding with cultural activities or it concentrates solely on dog sledding. We offer you to attend the unique Camel festival. Camels are at their most beautiful in winter when they have all the fur. Additionally we combine the dog sledding adventure with the lunar new year. This most important traditional festival is all about the unity of the family. You will visit families yourself and witness this great festivity.
