Best hotels in Red Lake

Red Lake Hotels

The former gold mining town of Red Lake is surrounded by lake lands and forests, and has the nickname of the Norseman Capital of the World, thanks to the tiny planes that get people around the region. Red Lake makes for a great escape from the stress of the city, accessible only through a long drive or plane journey, and therefore allowing you to slow down and appreciate the untouched natural beauty and fresh air.

Things to see

Red Lake Regional Heritage Centre is a small local museum that teaches visitors not only about the area's past, but also its present. There are interactive exhibits where you can explore specimens from the surrounding areas, as well as recreations of aboriginal life, HD movies about the history of the town, and preserved exhibits about the early life of those who moved to Red Lake for the gold rush. To the west of the town, the vast Woodland Caribou Provincial Park has 2 rivers running through the park, full of huge trout and bass, as well as long hiking trails through the trees and over rocky areas. Along the way you'll see rare birds and wildlife, and can even stop off for a night of camping under the stars. Paddling is also a unique way to explore the park, allowing you to enjoy the rock formations up close, and see areas it's impossible to see on foot. The Red Lake Golf and Country Club offers further opportunities for relaxation, and you'll enjoy an 18 hole golf course with breathtaking lake views and plenty of challenges for all levels. There's an impressive clubhouse with a terrace overlooking the 18th hole, and a well-stocked pro shop in case you've forgotten anything.
