Home to some of Canada’s finest inland beaches and one of the best southern views of the northern lights, Southern Manitoba provides visitors with an opportunity to discover the wilderness and wildlife of Manitoba’s south and the cosmopolitan nature of the provincial capital, Winnipeg.
Home to many nationally and provincially designated parks and reserves, Southern Manitoba is a place to enjoy outdoor recreation and relaxation. Walking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, and golf are popular activities in the summer, while cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are favourites come winter.
With a myriad of lakes, rivers, and streams, the region is also a preferred destination of anglers and water sport enthusiasts, who take to the waterways to canoe, kayak, waterski, wakeboard, and windsurf. Grand Beach and Victoria Beaches are some of Canada's best and attract swimmers and sunbathers from across Canada.
Known as the “Cultural Cradle of Canada,” Winnipeg is home to world-class entertainment and a variety of cultural institutions—including the Royal Canadian Mint, the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra—as well as the world’s largest collection of Inuit art, housed at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. The city hosts a range of events, such as the Festival du Voyageur, Folklorama, and the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
