The Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont-Blanc
An unmissable event
Since the very first one in January 2005, Megève has been proud to host the greatest and most difficult dog-sledding race in Europe. The race is a veritable odyssey across the Alps, with 10 different stages, around 65 mushers and 550 athlete dogs. When they pass through Megève, join the pack and discover the world of the mushers, these incredible “travellers through the cold”! With La Grande Odyssée, there’s no doubt about it: there’s something quite magical about the huskies.
