Interlake Region

Between Manitoba’s inland oceans, adventures are waiting.

Beaches, boating and birding

Manitoba’s Interlake region gets its name because it’s located between the province’s two biggest lakes -- Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. So it’s no surprise that the lakes loom large in this region. Beaches along the shores of both lakes are family favourites, while boats are swapped for ice fishing shacks in the winter. Birders flock to important habitats, including the marshes that filter the water going in and out of the lakes.

Viking spirit

Many communities here celebrate their Viking roots, including Gimli -- the heart of New Iceland. Other communities in the region showcase Indigenous, Métis, Scottish and Ukrainian heritage. At Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, these different stories come together to bring to life a part of Canada’s history.
