A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and its People
A journey into our shared prairie past.

This signature tour combines our popular Bison Safari experience with the sights, souths, smells and tastes of our shared prairie history, leaving you with a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t soon forget.

In this experience, you will:
Get up close and personal with Canada’s only urban bison herd on a Bison Safari to learn about the Plains bison and their importance to life on the prairie;
Transport yourself to voyageur times as you paddle across the lake in a historic-style voyageur canoe;
Immerse yourself in Manitoba’s cultural history by stepping into a Dakota Plains-style tipi and a one-room pioneer sod house, and
Cap off the day by savouring wild-harvested tea and roasting bannock over a campfire.
A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and Its People has been designated as a Canadian Signature Experience.
