Flin Flon is a city North of 53 in Manitoba; it is landlocked and on the border with Saskatchewan, and in fact a small portion of Flin Flon is actually located inside Saskatchewan, making it only one of two undivided border cities in Canada (alongside Lloydminster), although it is never enumerated as one of Saskatchewan's cities. Its main industry is mining, and the town is dominated by the mine's smokestack. The town is largely constructed on exposed rock face, giving it a surreal, almost lunar, atmosphere. It is located immediately adjacent to the Saskatchewan town of Creighton.

Get in[edit]

  • Flin Flon is primarily accessed from within Manitoba via Highway 10. From Saskatchewan, Highway 167 connects through Creighton; Hwy 167, in turn, links to Highway 106 (aka the Hanson Lake Road), with follows a long a winding path towards Nipawin, Prince Albert and points west and south.
  • A small airport provides region flights. An unusual aspect of this airport is the fact a local road actually crosses the runway at one point.
