Discover what makes your heart beat Manitoba! 

Give in to your sense of adventure and see for yourself why Manitoba is a special destination that should not be missed.

Manitoba’s diverse landscapes means many different animals call the province home. Up north of Manitoba and located on the shores of Hudson Bay is the town of Churchill, “Polar Bear Capital of the World.”

Churchill is a year-round destination: fall is prime time to see polar bears, winter offers amazing northern lights viewing, spring is the top season for birdwatching and summer sees thousands of beluga whales arrive in the area.

Manitoba, the heart of Canada. Here, you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, but at the centre of everything.

Why Travel To Manitoba

Ice Fishing

Access Manitoba’s many lakes and rivers and reel in a wide variety of trophy species – from yellow perch and greenback walleye, to rainbow trout and black crappie. During the winter, an ice fishing village pops up on Lake Winnipeg as anglers show off their unique ice shacks and spend the day waiting for the next big catch over warm drinks and great company.

Food & Drink

Savour freshly caught pan-fried pickerel (what the locals call walleye). Sample beer made from Manitoba-grown hops and barley. Dine in trendy restaurants where chefs source local ingredients. The flavours of Manitoba are bold, bright and beautiful!

Northern Lights

While the natural wonder known as the northern lights or the aurora borealis can be seen throughout all of Manitoba, Churchill experiences the phenomenon nearly 300 nights a year. With its ideal position under the auroral oval, Churchill draws in eager nature enthusiasts every year to see its beauty.

Wildlife Viewing

Watch polar bears and beluga whales in their northern habitats in Churchill. Bird watchers can witness the symphony of wings in flight during the fall migration season. Please be respectful and cautious when viewing wildlife – these are wild animals after all.

Spas & Wellness

Soak away your stress in a mineral pool at a resort spa, be surrounded by calm at a city oasis and recharge your batteries once you’re completely disconnected at a nature retreat. Whether you’re looking for an afternoon to yourself or a weekend to connect with friends or family, Manitoba is ready to help you relax.

Skiing & Snowboarding

Strap on the skis and make the most of Manitoba’s outstanding snowy winters. The province’s changing landscapes offer exciting downhill skiing and snowboarding runs, while hundreds of kilometres of groomed trails keep cross-country enthusiasts busy all winter long.



Canada’s heart beats in the central province of Manitoba, where the country’s rich history is reflected in its cultural landmarks, museums, national parks and dynamic neighbourhoods. It’s here you’ll find unimaginable encounters with polar bears, the aurora borealis, and the welcoming, unpretentious locals. Read on for 10 unmissable adventures in Manitoba.

What is Book Now?

Book Now offers you the ability to make a reservation on our website for Holiday Packages that include our Peace of Mind Booking Plan. But it’s not just a static offer – you have complete flexibility from travel dates, passenger numbers, single supplements, room upgrades, optional extras, flexible booking terms and more.

Why do some packages not offer the ability to Book Now on the website?

If a package on our website does not include our Peace of Mind Booking Plan, it will not be available to Book Now.

Due to the boutique nature and limited capacity of some travel experiences offered, they have strict payment and cancellation policies. (e.g., a remote bear lodge in Canada with only a few cabins).

Although technically possible, we have decided that it is impractical for us to try and sell these type of travel services on-line. We believe it is important that such product is discussed, so that we can ensure these strict payment and cancellation policies are understood before we proceed with a booking.

For such product we may act as an agent only for the principal suppliers. Where we act as agent, your contract for the delivery of travel arrangements will be with the principal supplier and will be subject to their Booking Conditions.

We will advise you prior to confirming your booking if we are acting as agent and we will confirm the details of the principal supplier. Our responsibility to you where we sell travel arrangements as agent for the supplier is specified in the ‘Responsibility’ section of our Booking Conditions.

Should I take travel insurance?

Travel insurance is strongly recommended. During the Book Now process please confirm you require assistance, and our team will be in contact with you.

What should I do before travelling?

Before you travel it is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate documentation including visas. If you are travelling on a passport other than Australian or New Zealand, you will require a permit to re-enter Australia. It is your responsibility as the traveller and/or travel booker to meet all government entry requirements.

For more information please visit - Before you travel | Entire Travel Group

How does a Travel Agent make a booking?

Please visit the Entire Travel Group's Agent Portal. We are here to support our industry partners with a range of informative updates, marketing collateral for campaigns and a reward & recognition program.

How do I start a Booking?

  • On any page that has Book Now simply follow the booking process.
  • You must select the Travel Agent tick box and provide correct details.
  • To confirm a booking only the refundable deposit is required.
  • An agency credit card must be used for this initial payment.

How do I contact Entire Travel Group?

Can you book my international airfares?

On some Islands Holiday Packages (e.g. Fiji), it is practical to include flights, so where we have done this it is indicated by the plane icon.

However, on the majority of our Holiday Packages, we do not include international flights.

We found that many customers may prefer to:

  • Travel on a specific airline of their choice
  • Have the flexibility to book flights with Frequent Flyer points
  • Select flight dates that may be different to our Holiday Package start/end dates
  • Use a Travel Credit already held with the airline
  • Use their travel agent for this service

We are able to assist with flights on any Holiday Package, so please just notify us during the Book Now process or contact our team.
