1. Sledge or paret :

Get on a sledge or, more unusually, on a paret and have fun sliding down the slopes with your family. Laughter and excitement guaranteed! 
For your safety and that of your children, it is recommended to wear a helmet.

What is a Paret?
The Paret is a small wooden sled with one runner, a board for sitting on and a handle for steering. 

2. A dog sled ride: 

No need to go to Canada or Scandinavia to discover sled dogs, come and experience them in Manigod. Climb aboard a sled pulled by sled dogs for an unusual family outing. Let yourself be guided by the musher and enjoy the beauty of the landscape, which will awaken the trapper in you. An adventure close to nature offering unique sensations.
