A Prairie Legacy

Discover how bison influenced the history of Manitoba and the lives of Indigenous peoples and pioneers.

Step back in time

Venture through the aspen forest onto the open prairie, where you will experience a close-up encounter with 30 grunting, munching bison. Test your skills as you power a mighty Voyageur canoe around the lake, or hear the crunching of the snow under historic footwear, the snowshoe. Explore a Plains Cree Tipi and marvel at the design and functionality — cool in summer and warm in winter, offering a respite from the prairie winds. Feel the smoothness of a hand-crafted black spoon, fashioned from a bison horn. Step inside a one-room pioneer sod house and savour wild bush tea and bannock over a campfire.

Tour dates coming soon.

About

Due to COVID, our tours look a little different this year. For the safety of all of our visitors, our tours are available only for group bookings. Groups can book a safari for up to 10 people (family/friends they are comfortable being with) for a flat rate. For this private experience we ask:

  • Tour must be prebooked
  • Pre-paid flat-rate fee
  • COVID Protocols
    • Current Maximum Capacity of 10 participants per tour
    • The capacity allows for every second seat to be filled on the bus if desired
    • Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures meet or exceed current public health guidelines
    • Masks are required on the bus; bring your own, or plan to purchase one for a small additional fee.

Good to know

  • Tour length is 3 hours.
  • We encourage you to bring a camera (and to take a bison selfie!).
  • While in the Bison Praire enclosure, you must remain on the bus at all times.
  • The bus does not accommodate wheelchairs; passengers must be able to board the bus independently.
  • Tours are dependent on the weather and ground conditions; we may have to cancel or postpone a tour.
