Welcome To The North...

From our pristine lakes to our rugged landscape and endless sky, Northern Manitoba has something to offer the adventurer in you. See the untouched wilderness and the hundreds of species of wildlife -- from polar bears and beluga whales, to caribou and arctic fox. Hear the roar of our majestic waterfalls and the haunting call of the loon. Taste bannock baked over a campfire and feel the warmth of our communities as they welcome you with open arms. This is the north... this is northern Manitoba.
