A land of mysteries – revealing a compassionate heart, an adventurous soul.
The Eastern Manitoba Region, enveloping the lands east of the Red River, Lake Winnipeg and the City of Winnipeg, offers tourists many varied and diverse experiences. The vast and varied landscape ranges from productive, serene farmland to the rugged scapes of the Precambrian Shield to beautiful lakes and major historic river waterways. This variety presents endless opportunities in agri tourism, eco tourism, white water rafting, canoeing, fishing, hunting, camping and sporting opportunities of all types.
The culture is as varied as the landscape and tourists can enjoy the heritage experiences of the Cree and Ojibway First Nations. The immigrants of the late nineteenth century brought their cultures to the region and one can enjoy the Francophone, Ukrainian, Mennonite and Métis history and flavour of the area. Many festivals in the region feature the ethnic nuances of the residents with the museums depicting the history and struggles of the early settlers to this productive yet scenic part of Manitoba.

Experience our good nature!
Cool lakes, rushing rivers and dense green forests. The Parklands are a precious resource – home to elk, deer, black bear and other magnificent Manitoba wildlife. Bison still roam the range near Lake Audy and Waterhen.
It is a common misconception that Manitoba’s Parkland region was so named on account of the many parks to be found here. According to geographers, the term “Parkland” refers to an area where grasslands of the prairies give way to the more densely forested regions of the north.
Spectacular parks and campgrounds lend the region its sense of grandeur and adventure. A land of grand, green spaces – yours to explore.
