Common Questions

  1. Are there age restrictions for this Expedition?

    Our Ultimate Arctic Summer Adventure boat tour is recommended for ages 12 & up.

    Kayaking is recommended for ages 12 years & up.
  2. 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.
  3. What are the bugs like in Churchill during mid to late summer?

    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 clients 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.
  4. What other things are there to do in Churchill in the summer time?

    Besides kayaking with Beluga Whales, summer months offer ample Hiking opportunities as well as summer Dog Carting. In the summer and fall you will have the opportunities to do helicopter tours, visit the Parks Canada center at the Churchill train station where they provide films, slideshows and lectures to visitors.

    Your flight between Winnipeg and Churchill will be with Calm-air on either a chartered or regular flight. Further instructions will be provided upon booking and/or with your travel documents.

  8. What should I pack for the trip?

    The weather in the summer can vary quite significantly. It can feel like summer and fall in the same day so both summer and fall clothing are recommended. We recommend packing the following:

    • T-shirts and shorts for the summer weather days

    • Loose fitting clothing, long socks, closed-toed shoes and a long-sleeved shirt and pants for cooler days or bug days

    • A wind breaker/sweatshirt/fall jacket for possible cool days

    • Hiking shoes or runners. Stay away from sandals in case of bug days

    • Thermal under clothing, a touque (a close fitting hat covering your ears), mittens or gloves for the boat tours

    • A good shade hat, sun glasses, binoculars, camera

    • It is wise to bring a good bug spray that contains DEET as a main ingredient

    • Spare batteries for each camera type you bring

    • Charging cords for laptops, cell phones, tablets

    • We also recommend bringing along a small carry-on bag with your absolute necessities just in case your luggage makes it to Churchill after you do
