A walking-tour company is initiating an eating tour of Winnipeg in which hikers through the urban landscape stop at four restaurants for munchable samples.
Prairie Pathfinders has organized the tour that will walk through the heart of Winnipeg's historic core with stops at Neechi Foods, Mondragon, the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre and Tall Grass Prairie Bakery.
The first tour is Saturday, and it sold out in less than 24 hours. The 31/2-hour hike is limited to 20 people and costs $42.50.
Organizers are offering a second food hike Aug. 24. Three more dates are in the works for September, Prairie Pathfinders said in a statement Wednesday.
"We're so excited to offer this new food tour as part of Prairie Pathfinders," organizer Wendy Wilson said. The 71/2-kilometre hike starts and ends at The Forks. It takes in Point Douglas, Chinatown, the Exchange District and downtown.
"It offers hikers an opportunity to explore parts of the city they may not have otherwise visited and eat some delicious food along the way," Wilson said.
