Churchill, a rugged outpost that sits on the western shore of Hudson Bay in Manitoba, is known for its seasonal residents – polar bears! Accessible only by air or rail, this remote settlement is the destination for your ultimate sub-Arctic adventure. Tundra safaris in custom-built vehicles that ferry you safely onto the path of migrating polar bears promise an adrenaline rush like no other. Spotting majestic beluga whales in the waters of the bay is yet another unique experience that awaits nature lovers here. With hundreds of bird species spotted here seasonally, this town draws birders by the dozens. Meanwhile, a small museum and an ancient fort offer a substantial dose of history. A smattering of charming cafes and restaurants with authentic local cuisine on the menu welcome you with their cozy ambiances. As night falls, the Northern Lights shine through the darkness making for a memorable end to an exciting day.
