Rémy and I are French. We  met in 2007 in Les Ménuires (in Savoie) when we were seasonal worker on the station.

Both passionate with snow sports and dogs, it is during an initiation by dog sleds in La Plagne, that the passion was born.

In 2009, we spent 1 year in Canada where we worked as volunteers in Husky farms, until Churchill in the countries of polar bears, to learn the job of handler. Experiences and unforgettable meetings then gave us the desire to make it our job, a dream which we did not think of realizing of so soon …

But in August 2010, we have been contacted to come and take care of a pack of dogs in Swedish Lapland.
An extraordinary opportunity for us to perfect our experiment in the middle. Total immersion in the life of Musher close to the Arctic Circle.
Then little by little, after a year devoted to dogs, we have become the new masters of those faithful companions and have created Laponie  Mush in August 2011.

So we landed 100 km from the Arctic Circle, near a small village of 500 people named Vidsel in the province of Norrbotten in Sweden.
We offer a journey into the heart of Lapland with our 28 sled dogs.

Consult each season and decide which is best for you to discover this beautiful untouched  nature.

See you soon, Stephanie and Remy.

 
Origine of the word : Mush
The words « mush » and « musher » do not come from any Native American language or from Siberia.French traders and explorers were the first Europeans in the Arctic regions of North America and learned dog sledding from the natives. In French, « marcher » means « to go » and « marchent » (« let’s get walking ») was a command called to sled dogs by the French traders to get the pack of sled dogs moving. Both words sound very much like « musher. » The English then learned from the French, but adapted some of the French words to make it easier for them to say.
