Things to Do

The Pas is home to Sam Waller Museum, the former courthouse and oldest brick building in Manitoba. Nearby is Clearwater Lake Provincial Park, perfect for fishing or a beach day. Explore deep crevices, where rocks split from the cliffs as the “caves.”

Northeast of The Pas is Snow Lake, known for its lakes and mining history. Learn more at the Snow Lake Mining Museum. Find Ladybug Garden and Sweet Nothings, where local artists display their works plus Tramping Lake features ancient images painted in red ochre on the rocks. Walk the suspension bridges at Wekusko Falls.

Grass River Provincial Park is a top paddling destination. Continue to Cranberry Portage to visit Cranberry Portage Museum. Stop by the Irvin Head Gallery filled with Indigenous carvings.

Bakers Narrows Provincial Park is known for giant lake trout and walleye plus moose, beaver and blue herons. Next, head to Flin Flon and stop at the Flin Flon Station Museum, visit the NorVA Centre for original artwork and check out what’s playing at the Big Island Drive In.
