The dog sleds travel more than 800 km through Savoie and Haute Savoie, climbing more than 25,000 m in the massifs of the Franco-Swiss Portes du Soleil domain and the Haute Maurienne Vanoise valley.
Generally held in January, this race is one of the most media-friendly and popular events of the winter. Several side events are organized to celebrate La Grande Odyssée:
– Baptisms in dog sleds
– Musical animations
– Ice carving demonstration
– Sale of “La grande Odyssée” derivative products…
La Grande Odyssée is an opportunity to discover the sled races but also the fabulous Portes du Soleil ski area.
During your stay at the Portes du Soleil, discover the 25 sleds that make up the Grande Odyssée and enjoy multiple additional activities (sliding, snowboarding, hiking and walking…)
