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.
After all, it’s an eight-hour drive from Winnipeg, a flight can prove costly, especially if you’re not travelling solo, and without a vehicle, getting around may be a little more painstaking. But for the true explorer, these are merely bumps in the road on the journey to new and amazing discoveries. For those still unconvinced, then I’d suggest that you forget everything you’ve ever heard about Thompson and make a point of filling that freshly blank slate with your own informed opinions that will give you a new perspective on this 62-year-old city.
