Nearby Attractions

seven sisters dam tours

Seven Sister Dam tour

Wilderness Edge strongly recommends visiting the dam while in the area. It is one thing to see photos of it. But its a completely different experience to actually walk right up to the dam. To hear the sound of the water rushing over the spillway, and to see the massive size of the dam itself.

Manitoba Hydro provides free tours of the facility.  Make arrangements a few days in advance. Phone 204-348-2603.
petroforms

Petroforms are figures laid out on bedrock in the forms of turtles, snakes and humans, and also in abstract patterns. Anishinabe and other First Nations people believe that they were left here long ago for the benefit of all people that might visit this site to receive their teachings and healing.
