Manitoba’s South West region is home to the province’s second-largest city, most accessible national park, highest elevation point and treasured prehistoric fossils. In short, this region packs a punch of amazing outdoor activities and interesting events and attractions.
The fertile greenbelt of southern Manitoba gracefully shifts into rolling hills where the landscape soars along the Manitoba Escarpment. Beautiful trails lead you to lookouts where you can enjoy the view. In winter, the undulating landscape promises adventure for skiers and snowmobilers, while its valleys welcome wildlife on their migratory voyages.
Attractions in this region celebrate heroism, peace and the power of art, not to mention Manitoba’s ancient underwater past. Visit Morden/Winkler to see Canada’s largest collection of marine reptile fossils. Manitoba’s agricultural heritage is served up as a nice cold, locally brewed beer in Neepawa, and comes to life at an annual spring break fair in Brandon.
Enjoy a round of golf or a backcountry hike - the range of outdoor experiences here is as wide as our prairie skies. Rolling fields give way to boreal forest and then tundra, the shifting landscape makes for dramatic backgrounds no matter the adventure.
