About Manitoba

Welcome to Manitoba, the heart of Canada. Here, you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but at the centre of everything.

Manitoba is bordered on the north by Nunavut Territory, on the west by Saskatchewan, on the east by Ontario and on the south by North Dakota and Minnesota. While considered one of Canada’s Prairie provinces, Manitoba actually has three distinct geographical zones: the agricultural triangle in the south; the predominant Precambrian Shield with its rugged terrain and profusion of lakes; and the arctic tundra in the far north, home to polar bear, caribou and arctic fox.

Winnipeg is located at the heart of both Canada and North America. A scant 104 kilometers (65 miles) north of the United States of America border, Winnipeg is easily accessible by rail, road, and air.

Named by National Geographic Traveler Magazine as one of the best trips for 2016,and Lonely planets Best in Travel in 2019, the city is a celebration of culture, history and design.

While visiting Manitoba, we hope you are lucky enough to share a smile with some new friends, and escape to an unforgettable lake oasis amongst the prairie.

From the varied wildlife of the rugged outdoors to the vibrant urban setting of Winnipeg, Manitoba will be one UNFORGETTABLE journey!
