Sitting in the heart of North America, the central province of Manitoba is the undiscovered treasure of Canada. Defined by its prairie lands, aboriginal heritage, spectacular wildlife and unequalled hospitality, the Heartlands slow the pace of this magical country.
Manitoba is bursting with a vibrant new energy. Its cultural diversity stems from the original inhabitant blend of six nations, which today have encouraged a vast array of festivals, cuisines and ethnic attractions.
The roots of the province are embraced as an important part of local heritage. A living history of colourful re-enactments can be enjoyed at Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site and, named as one of Canada’s three leading museums, The Manitoba Museum vividly portrays Manitoba’s history and also boasts a planetarium, science centre and a replica of the 17th century trade ship Nonsuch.
The boreal forests, prairie vistas and Arctic tundra create a natural diversity unseen in any other location across the globe. The province's 10,000 lakes are perfect for whitewater rafting, fishing, boating, wilderness paddling and kayaking. Wildlife watching opportunities abound too, drawing visitors to see moose, elk, Arctic fox, caribou and whitetail deer, and of course to Churchill, known as the polar bear capital of the world.
