Hecla Provincial Park's natural and human history are so inextricably linked to the water, that it's easy to forget that this is Manitoba. The park's most fascinating inhabitants are the majestic white pelicans that nest on the offshore islands. Hecla's first group of European settlers came from Iceland in the 19th century, to start life afresh in what would become 'New Iceland.' Most of the Icelanders have moved away, but the Hecla of today commemorates both the natural and human history of the island.
