Magnificent beluga whales can be seen during their migration to Churchill River, usually from June through August, and there’s no doubt that you will see these whales in all their beauty. There are several tour companies also offering whale-watching tours, which can be booked in Churchill, and there’s even a possibility that you might get to swim with them.
Wildlife enthusiasts should also note that the area is inhabited by Arctic foxes, caribou, lemmings, seals, and Arctic hare. During winter, you can travel the area the usual way, pulled along on a sled by beautiful huskies or by snowshoe; it’s also possible, but not as much fun, to use a snowmobile. During the summer, the main attraction is the startling array of migratory birds.
Visitors can also be enthralled by the incredible natural wonder of the great Northern Lights, and there’s no better place to see this phenomenon. Because of the limited accommodation in Churchill, all tours, transport and accommodation should be booked months in advance.
Churchill is located about 960kms north-east of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital city. Since it is so far north, there are limited ways of getting here: by air or rail.

Flights to and from Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport are more frequent than rail transportation, and take about two hours. Flight service to Winnipeg is possible from major cities in Canada and the USA, as well as from major centres throughout the world.
