Whether you are a photographer, birder, family, conference delegate or business group, we'll help you to discover the Riding Mountains together in new ways. Having fun, learning together, and doing some of the most unique things that are unique to this area of Canada are the magical memories we want you to take away.

The Adventure Season (May - October) - This is a time of year we love because there are so many creative ways to explore the park or local communities. It's a great time of year for photographing wildlife. We guide you to great places to look for birds and wildlife. We help you to experience different kinds of cuisine, and travel to local communities to have encounters with local artists and storytellers. You'll discover places in the park you've never been. It could by kayak, walking, or travelling by car to a unique place in the park. This is a season of community traditions, when we offer customized programs that include a great combination of outdoor adventures, small groups taking part in team challenges followed by a cultural experience, great music, or culinary delights with our unique partners. Ask us how we can create a special experience for you, your family, a special group of friends, or a small business group looking for a short getaway. 

Earth Rhythms provides customized small group travel experiences to Riding Mountain National Park partnering with the Elkhorn Resort & Solstice Spa and Whirlpool Road Bed & Breakfast and many other local partners. We craft experiences for girlfriend getaways, corporate teams, family celebrations and other small group events.  Your menu includes unique team building programs, inspiring regional cuisine, access to local artists's workshops, songwriting with Canadian songwriters, well-being activities, and fun local cultural activities.  We love it when you ask..."What can you do to help us?"  It's a great starting point for having us help you to have a customized, memorable getaway in any of our four seasons.
