Visiting Churchill

Few people know about the wonders of Churchill, Manitoba, and even fewer have had the pleasure of visiting. But those who have made the journey have experienced a world virtually untouched by human hands.

Whether you explore the lush boreal forest and its wildlife, the rocky Hudson Bay coastline teaming with Beluga Whales, or come to visit the great Polar Bear, in Churchill you’ll find yourself in a clean, natural place--approachable, but still out of the way.

Churchill, Manitoba, Canada has been called the “accessible arctic”. That's because it is on the warmer southwestern shore of Hudson Bay and can be reached by plane or rail. Travelling by plane gives you a view of the magnificent Hudson Bay and its unique rocky and wild coast. For those who enjoy the train, you can see the slowly changing landscape as you move north through the boreal forest and eventually permafrost and the wild tundra.

There are a lot of exciting reasons to visit Churchill, no matter which way you choose to get there. It is a town of less than 1000 in a sea of wilderness. The vista is pristine- no billboards, no chain restaurants, no traffic jams and no street noise.In this place where the creek water is cleaner than any brand-name bottled kind, there is unique sense of freedom where you can go in any direction and not meet a single soul.

Though Churchill's landscape may be arctic, it is anything but barren. It is home to 500 species of arctic wildflowers and boreal plants, over 225 species of birds, and more than 300 nights of northern lights activity. And, of course, there are the polar bears and the belugas! Lazy Bear Expeditions offers you the chance to take exciting polar bear and beluga whale expeditions and to stay in an authentic Northern Lodge after your breathtaking daytime adventures.

Don't miss a chance to visit Churchill, Manitoba, Canada--a humble town in a majestic location.
