Dog sledding - Outside activities - Ottawa - Ontario | Escapade Eskimo

My work brought me and my wife to the Pontiac County in 2001. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Sylvain Drapeau. I am a wood scaler as well as a wildlife and wood product transformation technician. My wife, Caroline Desrosiers is an elementary school teacher. We have purchased 200 acres of land in the Municipality of Otter Lake.

Our love for dog sledding has convinced us to reside in the country so that we can enjoy our cold, harsh winters. This passion for dog sledding was passed on to me by my uncle François Bruneau, who has practiced this sport since 1985.

Our kennel now has 24 dogs, which are descendants from my uncle’s dog Mouki. We began our entreprise Escapade Eskimo in the spring of 2004. This name was chosen in honour of François’s lead dog Kimo.

We are members of Outaouais Tourism, of the Association des mushers du Québec, of the Pontiac Tourism Association, the Ottawa Valley Tourism and the Ottawa tourism.

Tout simplement excellent ! Se laisser glisser dans ses paysages magnifiques avec le bruit de l’air dans les oreilles. Les chiens sont superbes et participer à la préparation de l’attelage est très intéressant.

Merci beaucoup

Accueil chaleureux, propre partout, pistes bien entretenues, chiens dociles et bien entrainés. C’est un ‘’must’’, c’est à recommander puisque le chef Sylvain, en plus d’être gentil, est très sécurisant. Bravo pour l’entreprise, longue vie et merci beaucoup.

Thank you so much for the Canadian winter experience. We have had so much fun snowshoeing, sliding & specially DOG SLEDDING! And will be something we all remember when we head back home (Scotland). Your business is amazing and we wish you all the success & luck in the future.
