Cradled in Canada’s geographic centre, Manitoba is home to serene stretches of wilderness interspersed with charming rural communities and rich pockets of outdoor recreation opportunity. Over half of the province’s population lives in the capital city of Winnipeg, leaving the rest of Manitoba wide-open for exploring. In the south, the landscape is a diverse mix of tall prairie grass, pine forest and even desert-like sand dunes. As you move north you will encounter the majestic rock of the Canadian Shield and, further north still, a strip of Arctic tundra along Hudson Bay. Throughout the province, lakes of all shapes and sizes dot the landscape, creating an incredible abundance of fishing opportunities.
The latest edition of our Manitoba Backroad Mapbook contains extensive updates and upgrades including the addition of provincial Crown land areas on the maps, noting fish species for the majority of lakes and the bigger river systems, countless road and trail updates and a plethora of new recreational Points of Interest. The Adventures section has also undergone a thorough review with notable additions to the Backroads, Hunting, Paddling, Snowmobiling and Winter sections, plus the addition of fish stocking and trail charts.
The printed version of the mapbook comes in the convenient 21.5 x 28 cm (8.5 x 11 inch) mapbook format with a heavy-duty spiral-bound cover. The 216 page book includes 88 maps starting at 1:250,000 scale, along with 10 Outdoor Adventure sections, a Service Provider Directory, Map and Adventure Index, Trip Planning tools and more.
