When you tell people you're from Canada, their automatic response is usually something like "Isn't it cold there?" We have a reputation for being covered in ice and snow seemingly all-year long according to outsiders. It's doesn't really come as a surprise when you realize that Manitoba's giant snow maze is the largest in the world. It's no wonder people think we're obsessed with the snow because, in many ways, we are.
Our favourite sport is ice hockey, we love eating hot maple syrup drizzled over snow and the winter doesn't deter us from going hiking or even camping in the outdoors.
If you only put one thing on your Canadian winter bucket list for 2020, it should be a trip to the largest labyrinth of snow ever made.
In Saint-Adolphe, Manitoba about thirty minutes south of Winnipeg, there's a farm that creates a massive maze of snow each winter.
If you don't already call Manitoba home, then there are so many reasons to check it out. It's the polar bear capital of the world and you can see the white giants up close in real life.
Plus, Winnipeg has an incredible skating trail along a river that's even cooler than skating the Rideau Canal.
The maze is officially opening up for the season this weekend on Saturday, January 4.
Its closing date is weather dependent, but you can usually see it all through January and February.
It takes usually about 30 minutes to finish the maze, faster if you're a puzzle master.
There are a ton of other cute and wintry things to do on sight so plan to spend at least an hour or two on the farm.
Bundle up and head out to this incredible maze for the ultimate way to get lost in the snow.
Price: $12, $3 extra each for luge rides and sleigh rides
When: Opens for the season on Saturday, January 4
Address: A Maze in Corn Farms, 1351 MB-200, Saint Adolphe, MB
Why You Need To Go: The world's largest snow maze is right here in Canada and it has to be on your winter bucket list.
