Now that the coldest part of the year is in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about taking a Manitoba winter getaway. As much as we love spring, summer, and fall, there is something to be said about being the first to step foot on a lake or traverse a hiking trail after a recent snowfall. What’s more, winter tends to be less busy from a tourism perspective, so taking a visit to our neck of the woods will undoubtedly lead to an abundance of tranquillity, open space, and wintertime fun! Further adding to the allure of a Manitoba winter getaway, Bakers Narrows Lodge, outside of Flin Flon, Manitoba, has an unrivalled assortment of lodging options that will take your breath away quicker than a polar-bear-plunge. So why are you waiting? It’s time to pull out the tip-ups and snowmobiles for the winter retreat of a lifetime!

3 Ideas for a Manitoba Winter Getaway

The surplus of scenic beauty and serenity surrounding Bakers Narrows Lodge is a cornerstone of a perfect Manitoba winter getaway. Visitors from Winnipeg and abroad make the area around Flin Flon their preferred winter vacation destination for more than a few reasons. Although our region will have outdoor enthusiasts clamouring to get a taste of the “Great White North,” you still find seclusion when you want. Furthermore, Bakers Narrows Lodge offers a wide range of adventure packages suited for all budgets. You’ll be amazed at how many things you can get into in our slice of winter paradise. Here are three of our favourites!

Ice Fishing in Manitoba

If you consider yourself an avid angler, then you need to go ice fishing in Manitoba at least once in your life. One of the most obvious perks to staying at our Manitoba fishing lodge is the unfettered access you’ll gain to Lake Athapapuskow and other remote water bodies. These northern lakes have a knack for putting anglers on their personal best for multiple species, so you’ll want to bring a camera. There are few things more rewarding than successfully seeking monster lake trout, ferocious pike, and stacked walleye schools and pulling them from under the hard water. You can access all of our lakes via ATV or snowmobile, and several trails are connecting all the nearby water bodies. All you need to bring is your gear and the desire to smash sport fish.

Best Snowmobiling in Manitoba

We don’t usually like to brag, but some things are worth tooting your own horn over, and the snowmobiling in Manitoba is one of them. There’s no need to fret if you’ve never had the chance to ride a snowmobile, let alone go on a tour. Safety is at the forefront of our adventures. As such, each tour starts with a precautionary briefing, followed by a guided trek to a secluded lake for an adrenaline-pumping rip through deep powder. 

Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing

Winter exploration is seemingly endless at Bakers Narrows, and sometimes your legs are the best way to do it. Gliding across groomed trails with Nordic skis or trekking with snowshoes will not only immerse you in the captivating beauty of Manitoba but keep you active as well. Furthermore, Bakers Narrows Provincial Park is only moments away, so we recommend bundling up to take your mini-excursion to the next level!
