Whether you're adding a log to the fire in your shack or braving the wind on the open ice, fishing on Lake Winnipeg in the Heart of New Iceland is the quickest way to unleash your inner viking.

Surrounding Gimli's harbour is an ever-growing community of eclectic and colourful ice fishing shacks scattered across Lake Winnipeg's frozen landscape. Bring your shack down or drive out with an auger and brave the weather like a true viking.

If you become in dire need of a coffee, dry socks or a warm meal, the town of Gimli is minutes away.
