Fort Whyte Alive, Winnipeg

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Set on a large piece of wilderness encompassing prairies, lakes, forests, and wetlands, Fort Whyte Alive makes the perfect getaway for outdoor lovers. The education and recreation center includes miles of nature trails, floating boardwalks, a tree house, and a bison prairie with related exhibits. During summer, you can try your hand at fishing and canoeing on the lakes, or if you go in the winter, consider ice fishing, skating, snowshoeing, and tobogganing instead. Check out Manitoba's largest outdoor aquarium, as well as a greenhouse and museum. If you care to stay a little longer, ask about the area's seminars or volunteer programs.

  • I love going to Fort Whyte and walking the paths. Summers there are amazing and fall offers a wide range of migrating fowl to watch as the sunsets. Kayak or paddle your way around the waterways. I lov...  more »
  • 近くにはマンションが立ち並び、商業施設もありますが、道路を境に自然が広がります。夏はサイクリングをする人も多いです。池もあり、バッファローが見れたり、動物に触れあえる施設もあります。

  • FortWhyte Alive is truly a hidden gem and a beautiful place to visit especially during the migration period of the birds from September to October. I would highly recommend visiting FortWhyte Alive as you will also be surprised by the various activities they offer. They also have a wonderful restaurant with a really great menu.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time as a family at FortWhyte Alive. We walked the trails, looked at the exhibits, and were able to canoe and take a tour of the sod house. We enjoyed the helpful staff and liked seeing the sights and spending time together outdoors as a family.
  • It's very well organized. Always tons of fun activities for people with or without kids. Restaurant is great too. This is the first year we've had a family membership and it certainly won't be the last.
  • Amazing place for outdoor activities in the city. Nice walking/running/biking paths. Family friendly.
  • This is the place you should go if you want to get close to the nature without driving too far from city and don't know what you are looking for, you can see animals and beautiful scene and also have sports here.
