Day Adventures

These Manitoba day adventures provide you with access to guided nature experiences in Riding Mountain National Park and cultural or agricultural experiences in the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve.   We have created several unique day trips to look for wildlife, walk to offtrail nature "hot spots", use GPS satellite receivers, learn from local farm producers, encounter unique artists, taste Riding Mountain regional cuisine, or do several of these. 

Day trips are available separately or can be combined into a custom itinerary.  You'll enjoy the opportunity to learn from authentic local experts, discover important "behind the scenes" information about the Riding Mountains, and actively take part.  All of our guides and facilitators are specialists - they live here, love living here, and love sharing their knowledge with guests!

We do not pre-schedule these programs.  Rather, you tell us when you are coming.  Choose your day adventure.  We'll check for available guides or adventure facilitators.  Then, we confirm the program and fit it to your schedule.  Minimum numbers do apply in these programs.  However, we are happy to customize trips for smaller than minimum numbers as well as larger groups.  Please call us at 1.888.301.0030.

Day adventures include:
  1. Learning Adventures - are outdoor adventures in four seasons involving a combination of driving, walking, snowshoeing, photography, bicycling or other outdoor activities in the national park and in our local communities.  Guided adventures are designed to maximize learning by trying new things, discovering out of the way places, or going to little known locations. You become more than a visitor - you are our guests.
  2. Arts and Culture Experiences - involve encounters with local artists, artisans, musicians, storytellers, or others who have expertise and passion in the arts or cultural experiences.  You'll have an opportunity to try something new, expand your repertoire, or just learn.  You take away new insights and skills.
  3. Custom Day Trip Adventures - have been requested by many of our guests who wish to have their own group adventure for a portion of a day.  We have become specialists at creating and delivering customized day trip adventures combining activities and locations specifically designed to meet your needs.  Together with you, we invent ways for you to adventure and learn in ways that inspire and delight.
  4. Manitoba Cuisine Experiences - provide you with opportunities to learn about local cuisine traditions (bread baked in wood-fired ovens), taste local produce (herbs and heirloom tomatoes), take away local honey or other locally grown foods.  You can take part in the distinctive Earth Rhythms Outdoor Café with local chefs.  These programs are for small groups; minimum numbers apply. 
Top off any of your day adventures with a soak at the Solstice Spa mineral pool and steam bath (click here to learn what kinds of Solstice Spa experiences are available.)
