Winnipeg Travel Guide

Winnipeg is the capital of Manitoba, its largest city and a popular destination for families looking to settle down. Visitors can expect a friendly, laidback mood, a temperamental climate and limited but well-supported tourist attractions.

The historic area known as the Forks draws millions of tourists every year. It lies at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Lake Winnipeg (one of the largest freshwater lakes in Canada), the urban forest and the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden are also popular attractions.

The city has an array of art galleries and museums, as well as a strong film industry, which has hosted numerous Hollywood productions over the years. The city is also home to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, one of Canada's most celebrated companies, and the Winnipeg Jazz Festival.

With temperatures ranging from -22ºF (-30ºC) in mid-winter, to 86ºF (30ºC) in mid-summer, travellers are strongly advised to visit during the warmer months between May and August.
