It cuts through the centre of the province, snaking between vast Lake Manitoba and the ocean-like Lake Winnipeg. Starting from Winnipeg’s northerly outskirts, Provincial Trunk Highway 6 moves from urban density to sprawling fields of canola, wheat and corn.
Eventually, the remarkable roadway meanders through the Interlake, where towering spruce and stony outcroppings dot the pastures of cattle country, before it terminates in the northern hub city of Thompson. Surrounded by Canada’s lush boreal forest with hidden waterfalls and watchful wildlife, it’s an ideal end point for one of the province’s great drives.
Highway 6 is the road less travelled when it comes to adventure in this province; her secrets remain largely unexplored… until now!
