In no other place in the world polar bears and beluga whales can be viewed in a better way than in Churchill on the coast of Hudson Bay in the far North of Manitoba.

In the middle of the prairie, giant Lake Winnipeg reminds of a sea, rather than a lake. Far away from any ocean, it inspires with its maritime ambience including lighthouses and small fishing ports as well as beautiful sandy beaches and excellent water sports facilities!
In the North of Manitoba, summer flushes thousands of white beluga whales into Hudson Bay. Also polar bears can be seen, spending the warm summer months on land. If you want to see polar bears in a white snowy landscape, you should come to Churchill in fall. Then, hundreds of polar bears migrate from their summer territories in the tundra to the shore of Hudson Bay to wait for the bay to freeze over.
