Book Your Stay

The Heart of the Prairie Province

The Central Manitoba region features many icons associated with Manitoba. It is an important agricultural area, a heritage that is celebrated at museums and events. Its charming cities and towns welcome you with family-friendly attractions and festivals that offer a taste of life in the heart of Manitoba.

Hundreds of Kilometres of Trails

This vast central region extends north of Winnipeg and continues between the province’s two biggest lakes - Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba - which lends itself well to a wide variety of outdoor winter experiences. Head out for a day of ice fishing, or hit the trails on hundreds of kilometres of snowmobile, cross-country ski or hiking trails.
