Tourism North visitor guide and Go Pro video feature Summer Dream Vacation



Northern MB, September 2016 - Tourism North, the regional tourism association in northern Manitoba has been very busy over the past several months creating the 2016/2017 edition of the Northern Manitoba Regional Visitor Guide.

Categorized into sections like Summer Adventures, Winter Adventures, Inspiring Places, Lively Gatherings, Historic Places, Immersive Culture and Museums & Visitor Centres, the guide is 120+ full color pages of information on things not to miss in the North. Also included are sample itineraries, information on snowmobiling in the north, golf courses and listings of events, outfitters & tourism operators, transportation, restaurants and accommodations. The guide is made possible with support from advertising partners. 

The new visitor guide can be downloaded directly from the Tourism North website (www.visitnorthernmanitoba.ca) or be picked up at any Travel MB Visitor Information Centre throughout the province.  Tourism North also distributes the guide at museums, hotels and tourists kiosks throughout northern MB.

Joe Cote, Tourism North Past Chairperson explained an exciting new project which complements this year’s guide “To build on the featured SUMMER DREAM VACATION itinerary included in the guide we connected with a couple from Brandon, MB who are hobby Go Pro’ers and were planning their bucket-list trip to the North.  They agreed to capture their summer vacation which mirrored the itinerary featured in the guide and share it with Tourism North.  The result is an exciting video featuring some amazing parts of Northern Manitoba – Pisew and Kwasitchewan Falls, Thompson and Churchill.”  

Charlene Kissick, Tourism North coordinator added “We’re so pleased with the way these projects came together and we’re now looking at ways to build on the project, hopefully featuring other itineraries and sections of the North. We also want to extend a huge thank you to Lazy Bear Expeditions and VIA Rail who contributed to the project.”  The video can be viewed on YouTube on the Tourism North Manitoba Channel.
