Alaskan Malamute Sleddogs from Around the World Meet on Lake Como

Rosa Maria Lamberti on Lake ComoCari amici, dear Lake Como friends, winter sports enthusiasts and dog lovers: It’s that time again. In Casargo (LC), on the Alpe Giumello above Lake Como, Alaskan Malamute Sleddogs and their owners from all over the world will meet from 18. January 2019 to 20. January 2019.

The Sleddogs Celebrate an Anniversary

XV. Alaskan Malamute Sleddog Day, Alpe Giumello above Lake ComoThis year the organizers and the mushers with their four-legged friends can look forward to a proud anniversary. The Alaskan Malamute Sleddog event takes place for the 15th time. It was founded 15 years ago only on a trial basis, but after a few years it had already exceeded the expectations of its honorary initiators.

This event, which is unusual for Lake Como and takes place in one of the most fascinating landscapes in Europe, is certainly worth seeing. For the participants and the organizers, Alaskan Malamute Sleddogs and the Sleddog competitions are a real passion.

This passion, the beautiful landscape and of course the wonderful dogs create a very special atmosphere.

Activities for young and old
