Sandwiched between North Dakota and Nunavut, Manitoba has never been the busiest chunk of tourism real estate in North America. To independent travellers, this is a good thing: Canada's undiscovered province offers uncrowded beaches, innumerable lakes and unlikely cultural attractions, especially in the gritty/cool capital, Winnipeg.

A Daytripper’s Guide to Manitoba is the only comprehensive travel handbook to the province – and an indispensable tool for visitors from abroad, Canadians passing through and Manitobans who want to get to know their own backyard. 

Get the straight goods on cities, towns and natural attractions in every corner of the province, compiled by one of Manitoba’s most tenacious independent travellers, Winnipeg Free Press columnist Bartley Kives. Plunder a small-town gift shop. Eyeball turn-of-the-last-century architecture. Commune with nature in wild areas that still feel wild. And forget what you think you know about the Canadian prairies – the only thing flat about Manitoba is the Trans-Canada Highway.

Lifelong Manitoban Bartley Kives has spent decades covering his province for the Winnipeg Free Press and CBC Manitoba. He is the author of the Canadian best-seller A Daytripper’s Guide to Manitoba and co-author of Stuck In The Middle: Dissenting Views of Winnipeg, a collaboration with photographer Bryan Scott and the winner of the 2014 Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award. His work has also appeared in publications such as The Guardian, explore magazine, enRoute and National Geographic Traveler.

"Instead of just relying on promotional material, Kives appears to have worn out tire rubber and shoe leather getting to know Manitoba’s cities, towns, backroads and wilderness areas. And instead of repeating cliches, Kives uses the same idiosyncratic, opinionated style that he employs in his columns…" — Bob Armstrong, Winnipeg Free Press

"An excellent handbook for pointing out the incredible array of places worth visiting that are all too often overlooked." — T. Keith Edmunds, Brandon Sun
