Enjoy Wildlife Viewing in the Boreal Forests of Lac du Bonnet!

What can be more relaxing than watching wildlife in its natural habitat? Lac du Bonnet is the perfect destination for wildlife viewing along the trails that wind through some of the best wildlife watching locations in Manitoba. Keep your eyes open because whether you’re exploring our trails, boating on the river, or even driving down the scenic route, you can spot a furry friend. With land as diverse as ours, transitioning from farmland to boreal forest, riverbanks to lake shores and even granite outcroppings, this is the perfect place to view wildlife live in their natural habitat!

If you are out on the trails specifically to catch a glimpse of wildlife, then the best time of day to go is dawn and dusk, especially during the hot summer months. While it is always super exciting to catch a glimpse of wildlife remember to remain calm and keep your distance. Do not approach wildlife and if you find any babies that appear abandoned, please leave them where they are. Chances are, they have been hidden there by their mother, who isn’t too far away.
