Churchill

Birds, belugas and bears are just three of Churchill's calling cards, making this northern town a bucket-list vacation destination in almost every season.

In the summer, bright wildflowers and a wide diversity of birds making the surrounding tundra town the perfect place for birdwatching. In early July, white beluga whales surface and plunge in the blue-green waters of the Churchill River as more than 3,000 beluga whales come to feed and calve.

In the fall, hundreds of polar bears pass through Churchill on their way out to the freezing Hudson Bay ice where they spend the winter. This annual migration makes this remote town one of the best places in the world to spot a polar bear. Keep your eyes on the skies for the haunting beauty of the northern lights (aurora borealis), peaking from January to March but visible on clear nights all year round.

Churchill is well known as "The Polar Bear Capital of the World"
