Narcisse Snake Dens

Share This Story

Experience the largest gathering of snakes in North America at the Narcisse Snake Dens, just an hour north of Winnipeg! Every spring, from late April to mid-May, tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes emerge from their winter dens in a remarkable display of nature at the Narcees Snake Dens.

Awe-Inspiring Mating Rituals: Visitors to the Narcisse Snake Dens can witness the snakes erupt in a frenzy of activity as they bask in the sun, shed their winter skins, and engage in fascinating mating rituals. Observe the “mating balls,” where dozens of males writhe around a single female.

Educational Opportunities Abound: The Narcisse Snake Dens offer informative signs and interpretive programs that teach visitors about the red-sided garter snake, its role in the ecosystem, and the unique habitat of the dens.

Safe and Family-Friendly Adventure: A 3-kilometer self-guiding trail with designated observation platforms allows for safe snake viewing at the Narcisse Snake Dens. This exciting adventure is perfect for nature enthusiasts of all ages.

Don’t miss this rare chance to witness one of the most incredible natural wonders of Canada at the Narcisse Snake Dens!

Location: Look for the Narcisse Snake Dens sign on Highway #17, 6 kilometres (3.6 miles) north of the town of Narcisse (GPS coordinates of 50o44’07.62” N and 97o31’54.32” W). Turn east at the entrance sign and follow the short road to the parking lot. Here you will find orientation and interpretation signs, washrooms, a picnic area and a 3.0 kilometre (1.8 mile) walking trail. The trail winds through native grassland and aspen forest, and is easy to follow. It’s a good idea to bring refreshments and a lunch as there is no food or beverage service on site.

Limited time only! The Narcisse Snake Dens are most active in the latter part of April and throughout the first three weeks of May.
