Pedal boat and giant screen
If adventure is what you want, look no further! It's all happening right here in the Outaouais! You'll be given a compass, a radio, a fauna and flora guide to help you find your way around, and... a pedal boat? Indeed, Éco-Odyssée is a maze that was inspired by the beaver's habitat and dug in a marsh that you'll explore on your pedal boat. You'll have an extraordinary adventure while learning about the local wildlife!
Start by picking up your lunch at the Trappe à Fromage as you leave Gatineau. You can enjoy it at Éco-Odyssée before going on your adventure. A 6 km maze with 64 intersections is bound to be fun! By the way, each pedal boat can seat two adults and two kids, making it perfect for a family activity. Your quest over, treat the family to the sweets of Wakefield Confectionery.
