La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc ‑ Final podium and closing ceremony

Since its first edition 16 years ago, in January 2005, the Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc has been the annual event for sled dogs in Europe. It is the most demanding stage race in the world in a unique alpine setting, and now a benchmark for mid-distance.

It is also one of the great winter highlights in the heart of Haute Maurienne Vanoise, which, as holidaymakers and residents alike, moves crowds!
