For locals, it's known as the hub of the north - a industrious mining town with proud Indigenous identity and deep roots in the fur trade. For visitors, it's where the highway ends - a city that evokes images of waterfalls, clear-to-the-bottom lakes, pine-scented forests and mystical howling wolves. Whether you are visiting for the first time, proudly call it home, or have family connections there - Thompson calls you north. Here are 10 reasons why Thompson is such an alluring destination for your next road trip.

Thompson’s obscure wilderness offers fresh perspectives on paradise

It seems like a world away, far removed from the bright lights of Winnipeg and Manitoba’s populated south. Thompson is one of those places you hear about in conversation with others who have lived there, or travelled for work, but it’s not one of those places in Manitoba many think about exploring for a vacation. That’s an unfortunate oversight and in all honesty, it’s an oversight that I too would have personally made had it been left up to me. But this city has such a rich history and an untouched landscape that rivals Whiteshell and Nopiming provincial parks in its natural beauty, yet still remains largely obscure to most Manitobans.
