Adventure at Altitude (Beausejour)

Are you searching for a thrilling, heart-pounding adventure? Well, look no further. In the community of Beausejour, you will find Adventure at Altitude, a business that wants to give you an ultralight, hang glide, or flying boat adventure!

Fulfill your dreams of soaring through the sky, whether you’re a newbie trying it out, or an avid glider looking for equipment. Live life on the edge and try their tandem Ultralight Hang Glider SkyRide. With three different experiences waiting for you (Mild, Wild, or Extreme High Altitude), your Instructor will tailor the flight to fit your flying desires.

You can also try out Tandem Hang Gliding. Once you fly up to one mile high (5,280 feet), your Instructor shuts off the engine to a gentle glide back to earth and catch thermals. If you feel up to it, you can even take over the controls and fly the hang glider yourself.

The Dawson Trail

Enjoy an adventure that incorporates both nature and history. The Historical Dawson Trail is often referred to as the Forgotten Trail, but that doesn’t erase the significant role that the trail played in Canadian history. The trail is named after Simon J. Dawson, a surveyor who was on the expedition that led to the construction of a road that would eventually link the East to the West and unite the country from coast to coast. In 1868, the decision to proceed with the construction of a corduroy road was made and took three years to build.

The Dawson Trail runs along the north side of the Seine from Winnipeg went through the towns of Prairie Grove and Lorette to Ste. Anne, east through Richer, whose main street is on the route and across the Brokenhead River near its source, to the Whitemouth River. The bridge across the Whitemouth no longer exists, but the trail ran eastward to cross the Birch River north of Birch Lake. Then it turned southeast to Harrison Creek, whose north bank it followed to the North West Angle Inlet on Lake of the Woods. The clearing made for the trail in the woods is still visible, and it intersects the present provincial highway 308 about 5 miles or so south of East Braintree. At Northwest Angle, an old immigrant house still stands in silent tribute to the more than 3,000 pioneers who followed the old voyageur route.

When you visit the Dawson Trail, you can discover a world of wildlife, plant life, and reconnect with nature. Whether you’re a nature lover or a history enthusiast, you can appreciate and admire the beauty and stories that surround the Dawson Trail.

Pinawa Suspension Bridge (Pinawa)

Enjoy an afternoon of nature, trails, and out-of-this-world scenic sights. The Pinawa Suspension Bridge is more than just crossing over a bridge. It’s an adventure out in nature through the interpretive trails, casual fishing, paddling, and much more.

Fun-fact about the Suspension Bridge, it was built by volunteers under the direction of the Pinawa Trails Group. It was completed in the fall of 1998 with the grand opening on May 24, 1999. Because of these hardworking volunteers, the bridge is also known to the community as the “Labour of Love.”
