Hecla Island, Canada

In the heart of Lake Winnipeg, Hecla Island measures just six by twenty-six kilometres.

The island is a paradise for wildlife and nature enthusiasts, forming part of Hecla Provincial Park, created in 1969 that also protects four separate islands: Black, Goose, Deer and Punk.

Original inhabitants

Settled in the 1870s by Icelandic people, Hecla village has now been restored and provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the original settlers.

Wildlife of Hecla Island

You can follow a trail through Grassy Narrows Marsh or relax on a sandy beach: whichever you choose you’re likely to see moose, white-tailed deer and black bears, as well as some of the 180 bird species found in the park.
