Hiking & Skating

Winter in Manitoba completely changes the landscape, it can also make certain areas more accessible -- especially if you're hiking or skating along frozen trails. Whether you prefer to hike over rolling hills, by a lakeshore or over the boardwalks of the marshland or skate on some of Manitoba's pristine lakes and rivers, there is an abundance of trails to choose from in Manitoba.

Manitoba's hiking and skating trails are found on Treaty 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Territory and in communities who are signatories to Treaties 6 and 10. Manitoba encompasses the original lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anish-Ininiwak, Dakota, Dene, Ininiwak and Nehethowuk and the homeland of the Métis.
