Second Nature “The Fish & Folk of Hecla Island”

There's nothing like a little inside dish from a local guide to enhance your understanding of a place. On the other hand, it's hard to beat the sense of freedom that comes from striking out on your own.

Thanks to naturalist Dr. Heather Hinam, you can have it both ways with an intimate guided experience that puts you in the driver's seat. Hinam, who's also known as Dr. Hoo - ask about her owl research - will hop in the car and fill you in on the places, people and lore of Hecla Island while you take a scenic drive along Lake Winnipeg's shoreline to Gull Harbour. It's a friendly introduction to island flora and fauna, along with the history of Icelandic settlement. You'll even hook up with a local fisher who'll spin a few tales, share local secrets and show you how to filet a fish like a pro. 

In winter, Hinam will take you on an ice-fishing tour that includes a bombardier ride, and her Second Nature Adventures in Discovery programs offer customized packages designed for small, intimate groups.
