Canoe the Saine – This beautiful little river, with head waters in the Sandilands south east of Steinbach, runs through the heart of St. Boniface. Best time to canoe this river is the spring and early summer (unless after a heavy rain), it’s worth spending some time on this hidden haven in Winnipeg. The river is fairly narrow and even small fallen trees can block the way so be prepared. There are lots of access points, for more information visit Winnipeg Canoe Destinations and Access Points.
