Tourism in the Greenstone Region

The Greenstone Region has something for all the visitors to our beautiful area, from rugged wilderness adventure to top quality accommodations and events. Enjoy clean air, pristine lakes and rivers and a diverse collection of wild life and plant life. People from around the world travel to Northern Manitoba for the spectacular "Northern Lights", an array of vivid colors on the night sky.

Travellers arriving in Flin Flon via Manitoba Highway 10 are treated to spectacular scenery in many places as sheer rock rises up alongside a road blasted through solid bedrock. There are other rock based challenges: Flin Flonnians must bolt their utility poles to the bedrock instead of digging holes. And somehow they create lush lawns on top of bare rock. Every day brings a new challenge to the people who live in "The City Built on the Rocks."

Cranberry Portage has much to offer the traveller. If you are the energetic type, canoeing the famous Grass River Route may be for you, many outback camping sites on the lakes are marked and ready for use. Cranberry Portage offers two established and maintained nature trails suitable for hiking, running and mountain biking.
