Two polar bears on the rocky shore in Churchill, Manitoba

Travel Media & Content Creators

Welcome to Manitoba, the heart of Canada. Here, you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but at the centre of everything.

Manitoba is where golden wheat fields meet infinite blue sky. Cool, clean lakes and waterways-all 110,000 of them-beckon the adventurer and the rejuvenator in you. Unexplored parks and forests fill you with the Indigenous spirit of our fur-trading past. On the wind-swept tundra learn more about wildlife and yourself than you'd ever imagined. Winnipeg is our cultural oasis. A capital city renowned for world-class performing arts and lively gatherings-all offered with an air of modesty and down-home hospitality.

Manitoba is bordered by Saskatchewan to the west, Ontario to the east, Nunavut Territory to the north, and the US states of North Dakota and Minnesota to the south. Located 104 km (65 miles) north of the US border, Winnipeg is easily accessible by rail, road and air. Churchill is located 1,000 km north of Winnipeg, along the Hudson Bay. There are no roads to Churchill; this remote northern town is only accessible by a 2.5 hr plane ride from Winnipeg or a 48 hr train ride from Winnipeg. Churchill is approximately 150 km from the Nunavut border (80 mi).

TIME World's Greatest Places of 2023: Churchill

"Winter aurora-hunting has opened up a whole new tourist season in a town that has traditionally attracted the vast majority of its visitors during the fall polar-bear migration...But polar bears aren’t the only big white animals to make Churchill special: thousands of belugas enter these waters in the summer, and tour companies are finding new ways to introduce travelers to these famously vocal “canaries of the sea.”"

Think like a bear: how humans and bears are learning to coexist

"Unlike most of the thousands of visitors who flock to Churchill every year, I am hoping not to see a polar bear. If I don’t, it will mean that Szklaruk, the provincial conservation officer in charge of the Polar Bear Alert program, and his team have temporarily convinced the bears to stay out of town — a measure of the community’s success coexisting with the biggest land predators on Earth."

Shining Falls Lodge -- where guests feel like family

The best memory for all of us was the shore lunch Tobias prepared at the base of Shining Falls. With the raging waters and the roar of the rapids in front of us we watched him put together the walleye and multiple side dishes he placed before us - which made this one meal alone worth the visit.

The Prairie City is a Hub for Exploring Indigenous Artistic Expression

We get off our bikes at Niimaamaa, a giant sculpture of a pregnant woman facing east to symbolize rebirth and hope. “I am a proud Anishinaabe,” says Adrian Alphonso, another of our guides on the Clear Paths tour. “I am able to finally say that I am proud … and installations like these really ignite that.”

Doing the Bump with the Belugas

Beneath the waves, two smouldering coals for eyes watched me with an intense, unyielding stare. Pristine white bodies floated up elegantly from the depths, one after another, surrounding my kayak in the open water.
