Welcome to the Tanwen Pack!




The Tanwen Pack offers dogsledding tours and expeditions in Ripon, Outaouais (45 minutes from Gatineau and Ottawa and 90 minutes from Montreal).


Novices and experienced dogsledders alike, young children and seniors, families, business and school groups will all enjoy this unique and exciting age-old sport. Whether on a one-hour tour, a day trip, an overnight outing or a multinight expedition, the pack will take you through some stunning landscapes!





Hi, I’m Éric Pichette, the owner of the pack.

I’m also a folk musician and storyteller, and am passionate about history, biology and all sorts of other things! Welcome to my home. I hope you’


ll enjoy your adventure with me and my family of wolves! If you want, I can tell you all about Petite-Nation, the region’s plants and wildlife, the history of dogsledding or even life in the woods in the New France era. If you stay overnight, under the stars or in one of our cabins, or if you go on a night tour, I’d be happy to share stories and legends and play a few tunes. (Private performance available on request)

Our mission is to promote dogsledding as an environmentally friendly sportthat brings you closer to nature in all its beauty, while fully respecting the flora and fauna and dogsledding culture.


Our name is of ancient Gaelic origin (to honour my Irish ancestors) and means white fire—recalling the paradox of snow, with its blinding light.
