Polar Bears & Beluga Whales

Start your trip in Winnipeg with a three-course welcome dinner and private reception at Assiniboine Park Zoo. Then you will head north to Churchill and stay at the iconic Lazy Bear Lodge along the shores of the Hudson Bay.

Embark on two separate water tours of the Hudson Bay to see many of the 60,000 beluga whales that inhabit the area. Keep your eye out for polar bears, caribou, seals, and a multitude of bird species that can be found along the shore. Aboard the Arctic Crawler™, venture out onto stark landscapes, and search for arctic hare, snowy owl, ptarmigan, or arctic fox.

Head into Churchill to visit the Itsanitaq Museum for an exploration of indigenous ways of life while viewing remarkable examples of Inuit craftsmanship. Meet an energetic team of sled dogs and their handler, then climb into a dog cart for your own exciting ride!
