More than half the population of Manitoba province lives in Winnipeg, and it has developed into a dynamic, multicultural city.

Winnipeg was a trading post for First Nations peoples long before the first Europeans arrived. Now, famed for its urban forests and parks, Winnipeg serves as the gateway to Churchill in northern Manitoba, where our polar bear adventures start, and for Riding Mountain National Park, a few hours drive away.
