Manitoba skies are bright and sunny year-round, and the air is crisp and clear. There is so much to explore by RV in this province - including some of the world’s most unique and wonderful wildlife - over 500 species of bird, moose, elk and black bear.
Manitoba is the easternmost of the three Prairie Provinces. Winnipeg, the capital city, offers history, arts, culture, family fun and fine dining and is the ideal base from which to rent an RV in Manitoba.
Travel through Manitoba by RV and join the many nature enthusiasts who flock to the area each year to take in its flora and fauna, most hoping to snap a pic of a polar bear. Two-thirds of Canada's 500-plus species of birds come here, drawn by more than 100,000 lakes and countless rivers and marshes. The northern part of Manitoba is Precambrian Shield and northernmost Manitoba is made up of tundra and permafrost. During the fall in the northern town of Churchill–the “Polar Bear Capital of the World,” hundreds of migrating bears congregate while waiting for sea-ice to form.
Some other exciting options for RVers in Manitoba:
- Birders flock year-round to the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre, just 15 minutes from Winnipeg, situated in the midst of one of the best bird-viewing areas on the continent.
- In the warmer months, you can swim with the “smiling” beluga whales in Hudson Bay.
- Aurora Borealis is pure magic. Witness colourful night skies lit up by this luminous phenomenon.
Winnipeg is the capital and largest city of Manitoba and serves as the perfect base to explore the region by RV. It lies near to the Canadian Shield and hundreds of beautiful lakes such as Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. There are numerous RV rental depots in Winnipeg.
