Canada land of adventure

Visitors have been coming to Manitoba – and staying – for more than a century, swelling its capital city of Winnipeg into Canada’s fourth-largest city and creating a surprising mix of immigrant culture more diverse than anywhere else between Vancouver and Toronto.

The southern portion of the province is flat, levelled by great glaciers during the most recent Ice Age. Where thousands of square kilometres of uninterrupted tallgrass prairie once rolled under the press of the wind, colourful fields of hard wheat, flax, canola and sunflowers thrive today. In wet areas, pocket marshes teeming with resident and migrating waterfowl replace the fields.

But whatever Manitoba lacks in varied topography it makes up for with its fertile farmland and immense lakes that are home to countless birds. In fact, only about 40% of the province is flat. The rest is comprised of hills and waterways carved out of the Canadian Shield, a mass of hard ancient rock surrounding Hudson Bay that surfaces most obviously here and in northern Ontario. This land is shot through with deep pine forests, cliffs, and lakes; it is not unusual to see elk, caribou and bears in this rugged landscape.

In the sparsely populated far north, tundra becomes predominant and the wildlife grows more spectacular still, with the singular light of the luminous sub_Arctic summers, white whales and polar bears.
