An attraction at FortWhyte Alive on Manitoba’s provincial animal, the bison, has been recognized as one of Canada’s signature experiences by the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC).
“A Prairie Legacy: the Bison and its People,” first launched in July 2011, is an up-close and personal experience with FortWhyte’s herd, while exploring the bison’s connection to the people of the prairies.
“The inclusion of FortWhyte Alive’s A Prairie Legacy in the Signature Experiences Collection shows that Winnipeg is truly a world-class destination, offering one-of-a-kind experiences that visitors will forever remember,” said Chantal Sturk-Nadeau, senior vice-president of Tourism Winnipeg.
The experience gives visitors the opportunity to travel in the way of prairie ancestors by snowshoeing in the winter and Voyageur canoeing in the spring and summer months.
