Gimli, Manitoba

Gimli is known as the the Heart of New Iceland. In Norse Mythology, Gimli is described as the most beautiful place on Earth; even more beautiful than the sun itself. 

Gimli is famous for its Icelandic and Viking connections, and this reflected across Gimli. Gimli is located beside Lake Winnipeg which runs along the whole east side of Gimli providing Gimli a lovely beach along the lakeside.

Gimli is the perfect destination for both summer and winter holidays!

Lake, land, wind and sun...Find all the elements for a summer adventure in Gimli. Take a dip in the refreshing water of Lake Winnipeg, search for lucky stones in the warm sand, sail on the open water, learn about the history of our lakeside paradise, catch an outdoor movie at the Gimli Film Festival or embrace your inner Viking at the Icelandic Festival.

Find your winter adventure in Gimli. Head out onto frozen Lake Winnipeg for ice fishing, ice racing and for the annual Ice Festival. Or stay inside and discover the history of the Heart of New Iceland in one of the museums and galleries in the community.
