20+ Photos Guaranteed to Inspire a Manitoba Road Trip

163_FI

When I talked to friends, strangers and fellow adventurers about my plans for to visit Manitoba, there was a unified response – why Manitoba? My first reason was that it was a province I hadn’t visited yet and seemed like the next best destination to conquer my goal of visiting every province and territory in Canada. I was also fuelled by all of the amazing adventures I had found while researching my epic Canada150 article. With lots of ground to cover, it only made sense to hop in a car for a Manitoba road trip!

As soon as I grabbed the rental car, we couldn’t hit the road fast enough. Curiosity fuelled me as I couldn’t wait to see the Prarie landscapes. And I have to say, they surely didn’t disappoint! The province is so much more than just Winnipeg and I HIGHLY recommend planning a road trip in Manitoba. While I only covered the southern half, I already can’t wait to return and head north.

Don’t believe me? I think the following photos will make you change your mind! The majority of these were taken from the car, and the ones that weren’t were taken just a short walk from the car. It’s amazing how much the scenery can vary from east to west. Or in my case, west to east… because I like to do things backwards. Enough babble, take a look at these snippets from my week-long road trip across Manitoba!

    In that second to last one…is that a hint of the northern lights? Oh my goodness, I’m in love with all of these pics. I’ve always wanted to go to Manitoba, too, and your photos reaffirmed that!

      It sure is! Unfortunately the clouds didn’t lift so we couldn’t get a full view, but I’ll take a taste over nothing!! If you ever need a travel buddy… 😉

      Aww thanks Hayley! I’d say Manitoba is a great road trip to do – I think you’d enjoy it! You can easily extend it across the Prairies into Saskatchewan as well… or even into Northern Ontario!

    To be honest I didn’t even know where Manitoba was until I googled it. But I’ve now added it to my list of places to go! Is that the northern lights going on behind the clouds in the second to last photo?

    • Lindz author

      October 24, 2017

      I’m so glad to hear that – one of the reasons I love blogging! 😊 And yes! Unfortunately clouds rolled in so we didn’t get the full effect but I’ll take a glimpse over nothing!

    We love a good road trip. In fact, we’re heading on another road trip tomorrow. Manitoba looks like our kind of destination, lots of varying landscapes and beautiful vistas!

    Such beautiful pictures….did remind me of my native Finland though 😉 Hence doesn’t make me want to see Manitoba as it’s too homely but I can appreciate the beauty of your photography :)
