Churchill is a small town and it is fairly easy to walk around town to shop or explore. Remember you are in polar bear country – respect all signage and warnings. It is not recommended to explore on foot outside the town without a guide.

Most packages will include transfers from the airport or rail station and to all activities and excursions included in your itinerary. For those planning a DYI trip to Churchill, there are tour operators that offer town and areas tours. Tamarack Rentals is the only car rental agency for those looking to explore independently.
