Visit Red Lake and experience the best in Northern lifestyle - past and present. Red Lake consists of six smaller towns located in the heart of a lake-studded, boreal forest region in Sunset Country. Most people visit Red Lake for its natural beauty, to see the abundant wildlife, and to experience incredible Canadian fishing in the many freshwater lakes in the area.
Red Lake is home to many fishing and hunting lodges and is a starting point to many of the fly-in lodges and outposts in the far north. Red Lake is the starting point for wilderness canoe excursions into Woodland Caribou Park. There's a chance while canoeing in Wood Caribou that you'll see the rare woodland caribou on your canoe trip. The historic Bloodvein River System accessible from the west end of Red Lake is a designated Canadian Heritage River.
History can be experienced first hand at the Red Lake Regional Heritage Centre. You'll find First Nations and gold mining displays as well as outdoor exhibits. You can watch movies of the area's rich past, buy books and souvenirs, and find out about other attractions in the district.
Red Lake is the commercial hub of the district, so take some time to do some shopping or dining. The town has adopted the title of "Norseman Capital of the World" and the annual Norseman Festival celebrates this historic bush plane and its role in the development of the area. Visit Norseman Heritage Park and see a full-size model of the Norseman. You can even take an aerial tour of the town.
