Dog Sledding in Mont Tremblant, Canada
Where to play: Dog sledding, or mushing, may look like you're coasting along behind a pack of dogs, but it is actually an active sport (see: jumping off the sled and running at top speed when the dogs go uphill). Mont Tremblant, where guests can be the musher, rather than just sit wrapped up in a sled, is located near Montreal, and offers the taste and feel of a European village, minus the long flight. The Tremblant Activity Centre organizes dog sledding through the surrounding hills and valleys.
Where to stay: The Fairmont Tremblant is located right in the heart of the village, and many of the streamlined rooms offer views of Mont Tremblant. Its slopeside Nansen Lounge is a stylish place to refuel on nibbles like crab and lobster mini burgers.
