Few places in the world compare to Manitoba’s hearty North. Northern Manitoba was a staple in the fur-trade and Canada’s establishment because of its shores on the Hudson Bay. Its place in Canada’s rich history pairs perfectly with its extensive landscape of untouched wilderness to bring you the ultimate Canadian experience. Remote forest, secluded lakes, expansive rock shield and wildlife like polar bears, beluga whales, elk, wolves, moose and thousands of others makes Manitoba’s North a truly mystic place.
The Parkland region is located in west-central Manitoba and is an eclectic blend of nature, recreational activities, geography and strong community. It features many of the province’s nicest golf courses, crystal clear lakes and rivers with several different species of trophy-sized fish, as well as Manitoba’s only National Park. Renowned winter skiing, snowshoe and snowmobile trails also make for epic cycle, hiking and ATV trails in the summer. There truly is something for everyone in Manitoba’s Parkland.
Interlake – Eastern
Located in the area surrounding Lake Winnipeg (the 11th largest freshwater lake on earth) and Lake Manitoba, the Interlake features sandy beaches, boreal forest and incredible camping and cottage country. Naturalists flock to the Interlake, like the birds and other wildlife they seek, and historians are never far from sites rich with significance.
Southern Health-Santé Sud
Rolling fields and some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets you’ve ever seen make up the southern end of the province. While the West is a fertile territory rich in farming and agriculture, the East belongs to the Canadian Shield, the picture-perfect wilderness that cottages and camping is made for. The Southern Region of Manitoba has a great deal to do with the history and founding of the province, leaving no shortage of museums and tourist attractions celebrating Manitoba’s past.
