I just want to say we had a great time at Lazy Bear Lodge. We loved Churchill and its wildlife and I can say we were highly satisfied with the guides we had. Jason who took us on the Beluga Whale tour and across the river to the fort, was very good . We found the family very nice and he was a great guide too. The staff at the restaurant were good and the food was a quality we were satisfied with, particularly we appreciated the breakfasts.

Need Assistance
Are there age restrictions for the Beluga Whale Dream Tour?

Our Beluga Whale Dream Tour is 2 years & up, able to walk without assistance. Parents or Guardians can bring Children under 2, but they need to provide their own lifejackets.

Kayaking and Beluga AquaGliding™ are 10 years & up.

What is a single supplement fee?

A single supplement fee covers the loss of income by the lodge when one single person occupies a room. That person pays a premium as room availability is limited during our operating seasons.

What are the bugs like in Churchill during the summer months?

Each summer is different for bugs. In years of little rain, we hardly notice them. Early summer seems, in general, to have more bugs. Later in midsummer and late summer there generally are fewer bugs. Good bug spray that contains 'Deet' as a main ingredient works best. Some guests will bring a bug jacket or screen hat. But if you have loose fitting clothing, long socks, closed toe shoes and a long sleeved repertoire of clothing, along with your favorite bug lotion/spray, you will be well prepared.

Are there any additional tours or interesting activities in Churchill?

Besides kayaking and Beluga AquaGliding™, summer months offer ample hiking opportunities on some tours as well as summer Dog Carting. You will also have opportunities to do helicopter tours, visit the Parks Canada center at the Churchill train station where they provide films, slideshows and lectures to visitors and see the Itsanitaq Museum.

What are the typical temperatures in Churchill in June and early July?

The temperatures in June and early July can range from 6 to 17 degrees Celsius (43 to 62 Fahrenheit).
