Highlights From The Road to 150 Manitoba Episode
Right in the middle of Canada lies the province of Manitoba, which is home to the city of Winnipeg, some incredible lakes, and the polar bear and beluga whale capital of the world.
We learned about the history of human rights, did yoga with goats, learned about Canada’s history with the Hudson Bay Company, and snorkeled with beluga whales. We also relaxed in a Nordic-inspired spa, stood in the centre of Canada, and walked on the arctic tundra. We really packed a lot of adventures into our ten short days and can’t wait to return one day and explore the province further.
Did you know?
- Churchill is not only home to polar bears but also to schools of beluga whales!
- The character of James Bond was inspired by a spy from Winnipeg!
- The Centre of Canada landmark is less than 30-minutes from Winnipeg!
Manitoba has so much to offer visitors from Canada and across the world. From the incredibly diverse city of Winnipeg to the vast wilderness of Churchill, there are so many things to see, do, and experience in Manitoba.
Things To Do in Manitoba
We started our trip off in Winnipeg, taking time to explore the wonderful Canadian Museum for Human Rights and relaxing at Thermea Nordik Spa. We also drove north to Grand Beach to relax on the beach and to Lower Fort Garry Historical Site to learn about some of Canada’s history. We did some yoga with goats and then took a flight to the northern community of Churchill, where we jumped in the water and snorkeled with beluga whales. We only experienced some of the highlights of this wonderful province and have featured them in the video above.
Below is a list of what we did, where we stayed, and the companies that helped make this journey possible. We’d also love to give a special shout out to Best Western International for helping to make this entire 150-day road trip happen. [Read more…] about Best Things To Do in Manitoba
