Travel to remote Churchill, Manitoba for an experience like none other! We’ll witness and get an up close look at Beluga Whales in their habitat and although it is summertime, we may even see a Polar Bear or two! During this time the Churchill River is teeming with beluga whales who migrate into the warm shallow waters to give birth and feed on small fish.

While on land, enjoy the view as the surrounding landscape erupts into colorful summer blooms. Exploring the Churchill Wildlife Management Area by Tundra Buggy, you will have the chance to see a multitude of northern wildlife.
