5 Days

Description

Hiking with my dogs is a real pleasure! Join me for this beautiful 5-day tour in Valais.

Enjoy this alternative way to discover nature and the mountains, without ending up exhausted.

The activity consists of course of hiking in the company of a sled dog. During the tour, we guide the dogs talking and with precise gestures. The dogs have a harness a lanyard hooked to a large belt links them to the participants.

Children from 6 years old will be connected to the dog with a second person.

This activity is ideal for groups: schools and corporate groups are most welcome to join. The warmer months are ideal: I plan this trip from late May to late October.

A typical day would be the following. Starting with a morning hike with a dog, then a picnic for lunch. In the afternoon, we can be more in contact with the dogs: feeding, brushing and packing life. Finally, we return walking to end the trip.

Did you find this tour interesting? Then please contact me for more information!

It’s also possible to plan a shorter program if you want to hike with my dogs! Either a 1-day outing or just 2 days, sleeping in a mountain hut. Get in ouch with me so we can plan your ideal option!

About the guide

Since I was born, in the 1980's, I have been surrounded by dogs and cats. In fact, I took my first steps hanging from the fur of the dog at home. During my childhood I always stayed close to animals: cats, dogs, horses. I am a certified equestrian excursion leader.
It was finally with dog sledding that I found a way to combine my passion for animals, sports and the mountain.
In 2010 I started offering dog sledding tours, close to Verbier in Valais. In 2013 I obtained my diploma as a Dog Training Instructor. This allowed me to give mandatory courses to new dog owners, but mostly to learn much more about dogs.
Since I am also a certified mountain leader, I can also offer hikes with dogs over several days.
I live surrounded by my dogs. It's my daily life and my job, but above all it's my passion and my reason to move forward!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
