When To Go To Churchill & What You'll See
The Churchill Experience
The town of Churchill (population 1,000) is a northern Manitoba community accessible only by air and rail. A true bucket-list vacation destination, this rugged outpost on the edge of the Hudson Bay offers experiences you won't find anywhere else in the world.
Polar bears and beluga whales are just two of the main attractions that bring hundreds of international visitors to Churchill every year. The town is also famous for its nightlife, as one of the world's premiere viewing destinations for the aurora borealis (northern lights) that dance in the sky some 300 nights each year.
From the shipwreck of the Ithaca, to the enormous Sea Walls murals, to helicopter tours over the remote northern wilderness, there's no end to the surprises you'll find on the edge of the Arctic.
