exploring the heart of canada

Have you ever seen the sun rise in the prairies? It's unlike anything else – boundless and isolating in the most comforting way. There is no quantifying its beauty. It signifies the beginning of the future.

And the future, almost always, guarantees an adventure...

We are Rachelle & Kristen and our mission is to inspire you to Do North by exploring what's inside Canada's heart.

Until the sun sets,

Do North.

Each adventure will indicate the season we think is best for visiting. We will also rate them on a 3 point scale:

- loved it!

- worth the trip

- skip it. 

We are going to be brutally honest and subjective here. You do not have to agree with us, and that's okay!

Lastly, we'll categorize our adventures based on their distance from the city centre (usually Winnipeg). Day trips will typically be within a 2 hour drive of Winnipeg and overnight trips will be 2+ hours away from the city.

Happy adventuring!

When you think of cliff jumping in Manitoba, you probably picture Tulabi Falls. Nestled in the southeastern corner of Nopiming Provincial Park, Tulabi is a little gem just off the dirt road about 2 hours from Winnipeg.

We were lucky enough to have a couple of beautiful May days which allowed us to hike around, snap some stellar photos, enjoy the campfire and bask in the sun. 

We stayed in pet friendly yurt #1. It had a stellar view, but is the closest one to the parking lot. So, if your dog likes to bark at people, #5 might be a better choice. The only one I wouldn't recommend is #6, only because the rest of them are situated so perfectly on the water. Yurt #2 has a walkway out to the fire pit which sits on a...

Looking for seclusion? Birch Point Provincial Park has got you covered. It's a very small park just 160 kms southeast of Winnipeg on Lake of the Woods near the northeast angle of Minnesota. It contains just 26 basic campground sites each with a ton of space. Sites 21-24 will provide you with the most magical sunrise views coming up over the lake.

You will drive through Moose Lake Provincial Park to get to Birch Point. This is where you will check into the campground, purchase firewood and snacks from Silver Birch Resort and make the last 7 km trek to Birch Point.

Once you arrive, it's basically a free for all. There is one loop of gravel road, but to get to many sites, you simply drive on the grass between a few rows of trees. You won't find any water or amenities (beyond an outhouse and a garbage bin) so be sure...
