Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Manitoba

Manitoba is a great province to visit both in winter and summer depending on what it is that you have come to see. As it is one of the more central provinces in Canada, it can be difficult and expensive to get to and around. The Greyhound bus will take you along the main highway through to the town of Winnipeg where there are a few hostels. Winnipeg is the town that gave its name to Winnie The Pooh, the bear that formed the inspiration for the famous books by A. A. Milne. While here you can visit the Assiniboine Park and the zoo within it where Winnie lived. There is also a museum of Winnie the Pooh artifacts that you can see as well. Winnipeg is also home to the Royal Canadian Mint and you can arrange tours here during opening hours. There are a few other nice parks and museums here to visit but you shouldn't need any more than two days to be able to take in the sites.

Outside of Winnipeg, there are only hostels in Powerview and Churchill in the province of Manitoba. The Powerview- Pine Falls area is fairly close to Winnipeg and there isn't really a great deal to do here in the way of tourism.

Churchill on the other hand may just be the most attractive destination in Manitoba if you have both the funds and time to get there. The biggest drawcard for Churchill is that it is one of the only places in the world that you can see polar bears in the wild. It is a seasonal experience so you need to make sure that you are going at the right time of the year. If not, there are always the beluga whales and a whole range of other wildlife up there to see. It is an incredible destination to visit and is well worth your time if you are into getting off the beaten track and love wildlife. Given that it is right up north and there is no direct road to get there driving so you have two options. You can either take a flight from Winnipeg, or you can take a 48 hour train ride to get there. The train leaves on alternate days a week so check it out. During the high seasons, hostels will book out very quickly in advance so it is a good idea to plan your trip to Churchill before you go. It is definitely well worth visit on your way through Manitoba. Ask at the hostel there for advice on some other activities like ice fishing, snowshoeing and hiking while you are there.
