Welcome to Mantario

Mantario Wilderness Cabin

Nestled on a small island in the heart of Manitoba's boreal forest, the Mantario Wilderness Cabin provides comfortable, year-round, off-grid accomodations for your backcountry adventure. Get there and back with a full day of canoeing and portaging in the warm months or cross-country skiing in the winter. Relax in our wood-fired sauna, take a dip in stunning Mantario Lake, watch the stars under some of the darkest skies, or simply enjoy some time immersed in the natural world!

Mantario Summer Program

Join us for a unique summer getaway! Take a guided trip into the Manitoba wilderness with our experienced volunteers, and learn something new about the world around you. Trip themes vary from week to week, and include topics such as astronomy, yoga, mushrooms and more! Summer Program trips include accomodations and meals at our Mantario Wilderness Cabin.

Mantario Photo Gallery

The Mantario Wilderness Cabin and Summer Program wouldn't be possible without our team of dedicated volunteers! Nature Manitoba is always looking for people interested in joining a work party to help with cabin maintenance, knowledgeable volunteers to lead our trips, as well as individuals interested in joining our Mantario Committee.
