This is a place to be inspired. In the remote wild, see polar bears and beluga whales or reel in a massive fish. In Winnipeg, take in the triumphs of the human spirit at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights or get swept away by Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Manitoba truly is where Canada’s heart beats.

The name Manitoba is derived from the Cree word, Man-into-wahpaow. Meaning “the narrows of the Great Spirit,” it refers to the way in which Lake Manitoba narrows in the centre. In Winnipeg, you will find the largest Indigenous population of any city in Canada — and 63 First Nations across the province, including the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Dakota, Dene and Ojibway.

Delve deeper into the province’s storied history at galleries and museums like Qaumajuq, which boasts the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art in the world. Savour authentic Indigenous cuisine at admired restaurants like Feast Café Bistro. Celebrate diverse cultures with lively festivals like the Winnipeg’s Manito Ahbee Festival — one of North America’s top pow wows.


The Esplanade in Winnipeg

Set in the wide expanse of the prairies, Canada’s original boom town—a historic railway hub in the centre of the continent—has renewed relevance as a multicultural centre.


Don’t miss the iconic spots and hidden gems. No matter where you go in Manitoba, there are amazing itinerary ideas for you to explore.

Polar Bears and Beluga Whales  External Link Title

From CAD 14,895 per person

8 day, 7 nights

This trip combines the thrill of seeing and hearing beluga whales with summer polar bear viewing on the tundra. Thousands of beluga whales congregate in the Hudson Bay each summer, and you’ll see and hear hundreds of them both from the air on the flight to and from the lodge and on boat tours in the Seal River Estuary. Also interested in the belugas are the polar bears, here to wile away the summer and provide us with fantastic viewing opportunities in the process. You’ll have the chance to see a whole host of other wildlife on this trip as well—including caribou, fox (red and Arctic), wolves, moose, and birds galore (such species as ptarmigan, Smith’s Longspur, Ross’ and Bonaparte gulls, and jaegers, etc).
