There are a few ways to get to Churchill… dogteam, stowing away on a ship, driving a car up the rails… but the easiest options are flying or taking the train. Here are some tips.
Last Update: January 2013
The only real inexpensive option for travel to Churchill is the Economy Fare by train. A sleeper on the train is actually almost as expensive as the flight from Winnipeg which is already kind of expensive. Still, polar bears, beluga whales and Hudson Bay are worth it when its all said and done.
WHY AM I GOING TO CHURCHILL?
Polar bears can be found on land from late July until late November with peak season occurring from October 25th until November 15th.
Beluga whales visit the Churchill River each summer. Here, you can go whale-watching or even snorkel with the whales.
I did not have a ‘life list’ before I moved to Churchill, now I own expensive binoculars and a bunch of bird books. A seven day trip in the spring can result in 100 plus species…
