Northern Manitoba is a true wilderness frontier and its limited road access makes it one of the most remote places in Canada. Northern Manitoba is most famously known for the town of Churchill. Known as the ‘polar bear capital of the world’, tourists from all parts of the planet descend on this small northern community in the summer and fall to view the large population of polar bears that frequent the area. Lodges situated along the coast of the Hudson Bay are the perfect location to watch as the bears stage in large numbers and wait for the bay to freeze over so they can head out on the ice for winter seal hunting. This is a wildlife watching experience not to be missed.
Northern Manitoba is abundant in lakes and rivers making it an angler’s paradise. Lake trout, walleye and northern pike are the species of choice here and the many fly-in lodges and camps offer the avid fisherman some of the best trophy fishing in the world. Pristine lakes, vast pine forests, unique northern wildlife and shimmering northern lights are your backdrop for your next adventure in northern Manitoba.
The many rivers in the area also offer abundant opportunities for the canoeist. Rivers such as the Seal River start in the forest of the Precambrian Shield and take you on a journey through arctic tundra before ending at Hudson Bay. These rivers are seldom paddled by humans offering a true wilderness experience.
