If you’ve ever visited West Hawk Lake during autumn’s peak, you know that Eastern Manitoba is one of the most underrated fall destinations in Canada. Every fall, the lush foresty that encircles the adult-only Tallpine Lodges transforms into a beautiful blend of kelly green, marigold, and candlelight orange. There’s no debating the romantic allure of vibrant fall colours, especially for couples aiming to escape the nonstop pace of nearby Winnipeg. Tallpine Lodges was the first adult-only resort in Manitoba, and it just so happens that our secluded haven rests deep within the colourful forest near the banks of a serene lake. Not only will you discover seemingly neverending fall foliage around every corner, but your extended weekend away will be equally passionate, playful, and uninhabited thanks to our complimentary on-site amenities.

There are dozens of ways to explore the serene beauty of West Hawk Lake and the surrounding Whiteshell Provincial Park, including canoeing, fishing, and hiking. But you’re also free to hit the open road via car, motorcycle, or bike. There are several quiet neighbourhood roads on the south side of Falcon Lake that are ideal for a bicycle. Otherwise, a scenic, midday drive through the communities of Pinawa, Otter Falls, Red Rock Lake, and Betula Lake is a popular option for those aiming to observe the fall colours via car or motorcycle.

The Best Time for Fall Colours in Canada

We receive a lot of calls during summer’s final stages where potential guests ask us, “when is the best time for fall colours?” The answer is never simple – it all depends on what type of spring and summer we experienced. Even then, it’s hard to narrow down which weekends will produce the best results. The leaves typically begin to change in mid-September with a peak in the first days of October. Generally speaking, four natural occurrences lead to vibrant fall colours:

  1. A wet, warm spring
  2. An average summer
  3. Warm, sunny fall days
  4. Cool fall nights
