When to visit Manitoba

by SmarterTravel Staff

Manitoba attracts visitors throughout most of the year, but offers the best weather during the spring and summer. Although Manitoba's winter is classified as the low season, outdoor activities such as skiing and snowboarding continue to draw visitors in spite of the colder temperatures. During the rest of the year, Manitoba is a popular recreational vacation spot. The temperate weather sets the stage for leisure activities that range from fishing to ecotourism.
