Outdoor Adventures

Explore Manitoba’s parks and wild places.

Enjoy a round of golf or a backcountry hike—the range of outdoor experiences in Manitoba is as wide as our prairie skies. As rolling fields give way to boreal forest and then exotic tundra, the shifting landscape makes for dramatic backgrounds no matter the adventure.

Feel the rush of reeling in a trophy fish or flying through the forest on a dogsled. Embrace the calm while watching the graceful dance of the northern lights or gently paddling across a lake at sunset on your next Manitoba vacation.

Snowy owls spend their summers on the tundra and their winters in the southern part of Manitoba.

Winter is pretty amazing
