Transition

In a season of transition like October in Manitoba,¬†you’ll see and smell fall as a distinct season. Whether it’s highbush cranberries, or nanny berries, or rose hips, the yellow and gold typical of the aspen parkland comes alive. Corporate retreats, small group hikes, and guided experiences in nature are ways that corporate teams, groups, leadership teams (youth and adult) can experience Riding Mountain National Park. An easy way to do this is to check out places to stay like The Lakehouse in downtown Wasagaming, the Elkhorn Resort & Solstice Spa in Onanole, or Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast in Onanole.

As a transition season, the sights and smells are different. But, for many organizations, boards, businesses and community groups, this transition season is an important one to reset budgets, to re-boot ideas for organizational change, or to celebrate a good year. For all these reasons, the Earth Rhythms team, based in Onanole, Manitoba (beside the national park) is a starting point to ask questions about how they might help you to customize your own retreat or business getaway.

Our certified guides and facilitators create imaginative and deep training. They are experienced in a number of outdoor skills and love taking visitors to new places in the park in all seasons. Next season is winter Рwhen snowshoeing and snow tracking in day or night become a great new way to experience the outdoors together.

Perhaps some of these images will inspire you to think about bringing your group or team to the Riding Mountains.

A new partner for Earth Rhythms

It’s always a treat when we find a new partner, who understands what travellers are looking for, and has a vision and exemplary approach to providing service, food, and brings fresh new ideas. Accommodation on a year-round basis is needed. While there is plenty of summer accommodation options, we have been needing a diversity of accommodation options for the Thanksgiving through winter and into spring. Stepping sweetly into this mix is Whirlpool Road Bed and Breakfast. Offering a unique rural experience and yet perched on the edge of Riding Mountain National Park, Karly McRae and her family offer a unique ranch style B&B with three new rooms. With a very adaptable conference space, great food, and plenty of wild Riding Mountain nature in her backyard, this is a getaway place for couples and small groups. We are working with Karly to offer new Riding Mountain experiences for small groups, international travellers, and couples. Please welcome Karly McRae and her family as we wish them success with their new venture.
