Manitoba Holidays

The heart of Canada

Secluded, sprawling and scenic, Manitoba is full of surprises. Go wild and experience true wilderness, whether taking a rugged adventure trek, soaking up a little luxury at a remote lodge or enjoying an incredible wildlife safari along the banks of the mighty Hudson Bay.

The capital of the province – Winnipeg is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. Rich in culture, the city has numerous museums and galleries as well as being very multicultural with particular emphasis on First Nations culture, which is easy to see and experience. We recommend hitting the up-and-coming food and nightlife scene downtown, viewing the sacred White Buffalo at Assiniboine Park Zoo or stepping into a fascinating open air art installation in Winnipeg’s streets.

Then, head north to Churchill, it's location on the Hudson Bay close to the arctic means it's ideal for viewing the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights, winter activities such as dog-sledding and of course, once-in-a-lifetime wildlife viewing that simply cannot be done anywhere else. Take a unique opportunity to get up close with majestic beluga whales and iconic polar bears in their natural habitat on a dedicated tour.
