Description

Whiteshell Provincial Park is 272,900 hectares of boreal forest in southeastern Manitoba. The park gives you an outstanding opportunity to explore this rugged and wild ecosystem without having to travel far from amenities. You can immerse yourself in forests or following ancient rock ridges, explore bogs and rivers or paddle one of hundreds of lakes. Everywhere wildlife abounds.

This is where you look for boreal forest species, from the elusive wolf to playful river otter. There is a healthy population of black bears so be Bear Smart when hiking. The park has several interpretive centres and hundreds of kilometres of trails. See the park map (PDF) for ideas for wildlife watching adventures.
