Riding Mountain National Park is one of the most visited and popular parks in Manitoba Canada. This place is visited all year round but fall could be the best time to be here for many obvious reasons.
This part is located about a three-hour drive northwest of Winnipeg.
1. Visit Colorful Forests
In the fall, the green forests of Riding Mountain changes to the shade of gold as the poplars and other deciduous trees take on their autumn hues. You can find a blend of gold leaves and the green pines and spruce trees creating a photogenic combination that’s hard to avoid.
2. Watch Beautiful Aurora Borealis
You can witness the beautiful aurora here; once the sky is dark, gaze upwards and wait. It is not always visible, but when the sun is active, there’s a possibility you’ll witness a dazzling show of dancing lights in the sky. Even if you don’t see these lights, definitely several stars are still visible, more than you ever would in the city, and will also see the Milky Way with ease.
3. Ride a Canoe or Kayak by yourself
You must rent a canoe or kayak and paddle on Clear Lake to see the spectacular scenery and look for migrating birds as they pass through the park. While you could pass a massive beaver dam, and soaked in the warm sunshine. Many canoes might have stashed away on other lakes in the park, so ask Parks Canada staff where you might locate them.
4. Enjoy the Tent Accommodations
Camping options are many inside Riding Mountain. If you are looking for the utmost comfort, you may visit hotels or motels in Wasagaming as they are nearby, but you might also want to sleep in a tent or RV. But renting a tent is a great way to get closer to nature.

You may also add to your excitement by even renting Cairns Cabin for a true, off-the-grid experience.
