Celebrate your top performers with the best of Manitoba
Located in the heart of Canada, Winnipeg offers an abundance of unique experiences that translate into remarkable incentive trips. Manitoba’s capital city is home to world-class museums and galleries, awe-inspiring architecture and acclaimed restaurants that will impress your high achievers.
While there’s no question that Winnipeg is incredible, a trip to Churchill on the southwest corner of Canada’s Hudson Bay will elevate their experience even further. Read on as we shine a light on an incentive trip that combines the province’s exceptional cultural experiences with its spectacular natural beauty.
Uncover Manitoba’s past, present and future
While Winnipeg has long been home to incredible museums and galleries, the city’s cultural offerings have been taken to a whole new level in recent years, meaning there’s no better time to visit.
After checking into your hotel, head to one of Canada’s leading visual art museums: the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG). Here, you can be among the first to visit Qaumajuq, the recently opened $65-million museum that’s home to the largest public collection of Inuit Art in the world—around 14,000 pieces that range from carvings to textiles. The centre connects to the WAG on all four levels, which creates a 185,000-square-foot cultural campus in the heart of downtown Winnipeg.
Then, walk over to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which opened in 2014 as the first museum dedicated solely to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. Designed by the esteemed architect Antoine Predock, the stunning attraction of glass and stone has become a fixture of the Winnipeg skyline. Inside, your team will be taken on an immersive journey through humanity's struggles and triumphs as they make their way up through the museum’s seven levels, before finally reaching the Tower of Hope, which boasts a 360-degree view of the city.
Finally, embark on a thrilling journey that’s packed with immersive experiences at the Manitoba Museum. Explore the collection of the Hudson’s Bay Company, and hear the stories of the First People who shaped the province, it’s a wonderful way to end an enlightening day.
Winnipeg is an incredible starting point for an incentive trip. The spectacular museums, art and exhibits are sure to inspire and leave a lasting impression on your team, while the city’s top-notch restaurants and vibrant nightlife deliver the perfect space to re-connect with one another.

After you've had a chance to see what makes Winnipeg so special, take a two-hour flight to the remote town of Churchill, which is known as the “Polar Bear Capital of the World.”
After exploring Churchill, fly to the world-class Seal River Heritage Lodge—an ecolodge operated by Churchill Wild, which offers some of the most unique polar bear and Arctic wildlife adventure experiences on the planet. Spend your days trekking across the tundra to view polar bears in their natural habitat, relaxing by the fireplace in the cozy lodge and watching the diversity of the wildlife through its expansive picture windows.
An incentive trip to Manitoba is the perfect way to celebrate your employees in unique environments and with life-altering experiences.
“Winnipeg and Churchill have it all,” says Melanie Swenarchuk, senior business development manager with Travel Manitoba. “From world-class museums, architectural marvels and enriching cultural experiences to once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to see polar bears in their natural habitat and view the dazzling northern lights.”
