August – September
There is a new trend in tourism towards a cultural / eco tourism style of tour or vacation. Over the years, people have travelled for relaxation and recreation to so called exotic destinations. These destinations include Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, or on cruises. Now people are looking towards a more active, interesting and educational holiday where they attempt to learn and understand the culture and environment of a destination. In rural Western Canada, this can be interpreted as agricultural tourism. Manitoba is ideally positioned and has the perfect blend of cutting edge agriculture technology, production, and research to offer a very enlightening agricultural tour.
