Package Feature: Churchill Summer Getaway
Experience three days of magic in Manitoba on an authentic Indigenous adventure which takes in thousands of years of Inuit culture, traditional Métis heritage and the natural wonders of Churchill. This package is available April till September and includes two nights’ accommodation, a dog sledding excursion, museum visit, bird watching boat tour and Aurora viewing.
Journey to the edge of the edge of the world along the western shores of Hudson Bay in the land of beluga whales and polar bears. Throughout spring and summer birders flock to the town to see the 250 or more species of birds that nest or fly through on their annual migrations as the tundra blooms with a riot of wildflowers, and the Churchill River teems with snowy white beluga whales and their gunmetal grey babies.
By day, learn about Métis traditions and heritage as you spend time with the friendliest, hardest working huskies in Churchill on a dog sled tour bumping through the boreal forest. Spot rare gulls and Golden Eagles on a bird watching tour on the Churchill River onboard the ‘River Dog’, an 18-foot jetboat specially designed for experiencing this shallow waterway. Visit the fascinating Itsanitaq Museum with its incredible displays of some of the oldest Inuit carvings and artifacts which date back from Pre-Dorset (1700 B.C.) times through Dorset, Thule and modern Inuit eras.
At night, see the magnificence of the Aurora Borealis light up the sky with dancing colours from the comfort of an Aurora dome; a heated plexiglass bubble perfectly placed far from any light pollution, so you have the best possible chance to see the northern lights in all their dazzling brilliance.
