Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was our first time dog sledding and we had no problems driving the sled. The dogs were beautiful. Sylvain was friendly, professional and very accommodating. He took pictures so that we can enjoy the ride. The log cabin was charming and the staff was warm and welcoming. Overall an experience to remember for our family.

This trip is a ton of fun.
We experienced Canada's back country with a team of racing Husky's and created wonderful family memories.

We headed into the bush on a 15km tour with Escapade Huskimo, a couple hours north of Ottawa, Canada in Quebec.
It's been a warm winter but there's lots of snow in the bush and the team of seven husky's was raring to go. The trip took the afternoon and it's a lot of fun and great to see these working dogs in action.
The base was easy to find and would also be great for an over-night experience as they have rooms in the lodge for sledders. This is a great family activity, and most kids would likely love it.
When you're hitching up the team, the pups are chirping but once you're underway, the dogs are all business and it's surprisingly quiet and relaxing.
I plan to do this again in the future.

Family business and staff are all very welcoming. The place is very very clean and spotless. Dogs are well taken care of and very disciplined. We had a blast feeding them and truly a memorable weekend. It is a must to live this experience one in a lifetime. A must do in the region without a doubt.

We visited on Fri, Feb 3. It was cold -20F with a decent wind chill too. The ladies at check in were fabulous. They loaned equipment to those of us that they felt needed warmer stuff. When we were finished they had coffee snacks and hot chocolate waiting for us. They were awesome

The dogsledding was so amazing. Our guides instructed us and helped us hook the dogs up to the sleds.
It is cool to see the different personalities the dogs have. Each sled had 7 dogs.

The ride was more tiring then I thought it would be. Maybe the weather had something to do with that.

Our guides took pictures along the way and sent them to us.

I highly recommend this adventure.

Experience so exiting for our family! Staff very friendly ( dolce is amazing)! Thorough instructions and very welcoming atmosphere. We did both snowshoeing and dog sledding, the trip ranges available based on children age and distance was so convenient. We did the sprint dog sledding trip which was excellent for first time but we will definitely come back for the longer ride. Dogs are beautiful and friendly. Hot chocolate inside the new cabin plus a snack was an excellent treat. If you would like to make both snowshoeing and dog sledding, allow enough time for snowshoeing as 1.5 hours was not enough to go to the lookout area and back using the short trail! We went in mid March ,last day of the season, so the sun was out and it wasn’t cold. If you are doing this mid winter in Quebec, be prepared with all the warm gear including ski goggles.

Kevin, our guide, walked us simply and clearly through what driving a teams of huskies was all about, what to expect and how to keep the huskies and ourselves safe. We harnassed them, under his direction, and we're on our way through the woods: up, down and around!

Kevin took some really great photos of some very memorable moments.

What a great experience, this is something different yet able for most to experience. They allowed us to feed the dogs and made sure we were warm. Love how great the dogs are looked after. Owners and staff were awesome. We will be back - thank you

My friend and I decided to experience this and we had the best time! This is located and hour and 30 minutes north of Ottawa, Ontario. Once you get there you are received by the staff and they go over what the ride will look like and safety precautions. We did the 15 km experience which takes around 2 and a half hours to complete. If you go with a partner you can switch in the middle of the ride so the other person can steer the sled and one can sit down and enjoy the ride. The people working here sure love what they do and all the dogs look healthy and happy. This felt like a dream and I am so happy I was able to do this!

My husband and I did the Dog Sledding experience, the half-day Adventure Ride. We had dog sledded in the past with another company; and Escapade Eskimo was absolutely the best!! Was so nice being run by a family . . . and Sylvain & Joanna (the owners), Dulce (at the front desk), and their son were all wonderful!! Sylvain and their son took us out on the dog sled ride and we got to actually hook up the dogs. The ride through the woods was absolutely beautiful and the dogs were so well behaved and trained and loved. We also got to pet them and interact with them. And at the end of the ride we got a free photo disc and snacks. Sylvain & Joanna were wonderful hosts and answered a lot of questions!! Wonderful experience and we would definitely do it again!!

Caro, Sylvain and their daughter are great business owners. I had an excellent wonderful day.

The experience was amazing and quite perfect. I would definitely come back again. It was fun for me and the dogs. They absolutely loved running and pulling the sled!

My boots were not warm enough according to Caro so she lend me a pair of extra warm boots which I quite appreciate. Also, at the end, we get little snacks and warm drinks while watching the complimentary pictures they took of us. We get to also keep a copy of it. It is a great way to end an amazing and unforgettable day!
