The Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc - Event in Les Carroz-d'Arâches

La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc is a dog sled race, known for being one of the longest and most difficult of its kind in the world, because of its change in altitude of over 25,000 metres. For eleven days, the world's best mushers and their dogs travel nearly 750 kilometres and pass through 22 resorts in Savoie and Haute-Savoie.

Each Musher has a crew of 14 top-level sled-pulling dogs (Malamute, Alaskan, husky and Greenland dog). The start line for each leg of the race is attended by thousands of spectators who have gathered to watch this spectacular race. The exceptional mountain landscapes immerse spectators in a Great North atmosphere and offer the ideal terrain for this sport.

There is plenty of entertainment at the start and finish line of the race, and in the towns and villages along the way: opening ceremony with fireworks, walks and snowshoe hikes, mulled wine, giant tartiflettes, campfires, film screenings, themed exhibitions, children's introduction to sled driving, igloo-buildings, hunters' workshops… Each year the race attracts over 100,000 spectators.
