Top 3 Experiences in Manitoba

Manitoba, situated in central Canada has often been underplayed as a tourist destination, yet it has some of the most interesting, intriguing and beautiful attractions. The scenic beaches beside Lake Winnipeg along with the many local parks offer respite from the hot days during the summer. Winnipeg, the capital of the province offers various entertainment options along with cultural and natural attractions. Have a look at a few of the delightful experiences to look forward to in Manitoba.

Watch the Polar Bears of Churchill

Churchill, situated on the rugged coast of the Hudson Bay, is fondly called the “Polar Bear Capital of the World”. During the autumn months, the polar bears in the area roam around for hunting the seals. If you are planning to visit Manitoba during the autumn season, a visit to Churchill will make your trip, a memorable one. You can also watch the polar bears up close from tundra buggies (giant vehicles with grilled windows used for group tours in the region). We also recommend a visit to the Eskimo Museum which showcases a number of exhibits, including Inuit artwork and tools which date back to 1700 BCE.

Celebrate Festival du Voyageur with the Locals

Festival du Voyageur is the most popular and the largest winter festival in Western Canada. It is held to commemorate the French Voyageurs who used to transport furs in canoes made of birch barks. The festival takes place in the French speaking district of Winnipeg. The events include various traditional dances, music, food, crafts, and games, including snow sculpting competitions with traditional French music. The tickets and passes for the event can be purchased online and also onsite.

 Retrace the History at the Manitoba Museum

The Manitoba Museum is one of the most popular and attractive tourist attractions in the region and it is a hit, especially amongst children. Some of the exhibits in the museum include the gigantic dinosaurs of the Cretaceous Period, the mysteries of the universe in the Planetarium, miniature models and archaeological findings. There are various life-size models of animals too. Tickets are available online as well as onsite.
