Manitoba’s Interlake has a lot to offer and a lot to see and Interlake Tourism has curated a special Interlake Manitoba by Motorcycle route that covers the top 20 destinations. The Interlake loop has it all: Vikings, snakes, marshes, even a quarry park!
Selkirk Manitoba is the home of Chuck the Channel Cat, a large catfish statue that hangs out at the local Smitty’s. Selkirk is roughly 20km (12 miles) north of Winnipeg along Highway 9. Known as “The Catfish Capital of the World” because of the record-sized catches on the local stretch of the Red River. The roughly 30-foot tall catfish was erected in 1986 and is named for local fisherman Chuck Norquay.
A short ride up to the lakefront that runs along the shores of Lake Winnipeg. With an exceptional cottage community and multiple sandy beaches to cool your feet it is a nice treat.
