Manitoba North

Where wilderness and culture collide

This vast region of Manitoba is mostly still wild. Waterways carved through the rocks and forests provide refuge to an abundance of wildlife. But for those who seek a deeper connection, you’ll find the land holds the stories of Indigenous people and the communities here shine with the legends of the past and the potential of the future.

Wolves and other wildlife abound in Manitoba's north country.

North of the 53rd parallel is a vast region of Manitoba, where the landscape shifts from the forests of the Canadian Shield, to boggy muskeg to the sparsely treed tundra.

Going back thousands of years, Indigenous people thrived off this land, and they also played an important role in the development of the fur trade. Today, Indigenous culture is shared through festivals and events, art and museum exhibits.

Communities in the north welcome you to experience incredible parks and other outdoor destinations for experiences like paddling, fishing and snowmobiling.

A visit to Northern Manitoba means travelling through Treaty 5 Territory, the original lands of the Ininiwak, Anish-Ininiwak and Dene and home to Inuit and Métis.
