Turn springtime into playtime on the Roseau River in southeastern Manitoba. Take advantage of a steep drop and high water for a fast and fun day of paddling. Breeze by sandy cliffs carved into the riverbank or build your skill negotiating rocky rapids during low water.
Enrich your adventure with historic lore about this enchanting river, once used by the voyageurs and Aboriginal peoples as a bypass to Winnipeg. Connect the story you create today to tales from the past found on canoeist and artist Real Berard’s hand illustrated map.
Stretch your legs along the restored suspension bridge on the Crow Wing Trail, the longest section of the Trans Canada Trail in Manitoba. Imagine the voices of the children who skipped across the Roseau on their way to school in the ’30s and ’40s. After a full day’s canoe, pitch your camp in nearby St. Malo Provincial Park, a family favourite less than an hour’s drive south of Winnipeg.
