Churchill is located on Hudson Bay, at the mouth of the Churchill River in a sub-Arctic tundra. It's not easy to get to, which makes it expensive.
I was invited by Travel Manitoba and Frontiers North Adventures to join a weeklong “Northern Lights, Winter Nights” tour to the Canadian sub-arctic.
In summer the Churchill River is the prime spot to see thousands of beluga whales and you can interact with them via kayak tours in Wapusk National Park.
Beluga Capital of the World
In winter, Churchill is one of the best places to view the aurora borealis or Northern Lights. Thanks to cold, crisp, winter nights & very little light pollution.

Churchill is also known as the Polar Bear Capital of the World, with bears often outnumbering residents during polar bear season which is October to November.
Consider an arctic tundra buggies tour, a dog sledding tour, or a polar bear and belugas wildlife tour. You can even book a polar bear walking tour with Churchill Wild.

Polar Bear Jail
Try a visit to the Polar Bear Holding Facility, where bears who get too close to town are sent for a little “time out” before being released back onto the tundra.
There are Churchill hotels though some tours include fantastic lodging and food all in the price of your tour package.
