Winnipeg is a city of 752,00 hardy souls – sits at the longitudinal center of Canada where the mighty Red and Assiniboine rivers meet. Winnipeggers have adapted to the wild swings in temperature ranging from 86F (30C) in summer to -22F (-30C) in the winter, making the most of both extremes. The Winnipeg Folk Festival has been drawing international acts every summer since 1974, while Folklorama – with pavilions from over 40 countries – is the largest, longest-running multicultural festival in the world. Hotels have adapted offerings – get your laps in, or let the kids splash about, at these hotels in Winnipeg with pools – bookable on Culture Trip.
