A brief introduction to Hecla Island, Manitoba

Protruding into the vast waters of Lake Winnipeg, one of the world’s largest lakes, Hecla Island contains some of Manitoba’s most unique culture, wildlife and scenery.

Located north of Winnipeg on the west side of Lake Winnipeg, Hecla Island forms part of Hecla/Grinstone Provincial Park. Biodiversity abounds in this relatively unknown part of Canada. Go there for sandy beaches, marshes, cliffs, hiking, biking, sailing, golf, wildlife and Icelandic (yes, Icelandic) culture.
