Belugas, Bears and Blooms holiday

During the summer months of July & August, the Churchill River is teeming with beluga whales who migrate into the warm shallow waters to give birth and feed on small fish. Known as “Canaries of the Sea”, these friendly and inquisitive creatures will capture your heart as you enjoy their whale song by boat, zodiac, kayak, or - for the more adventurous - by joining them in the water for a snorkeling adventure. While on land, enjoy the view as the surrounding landscape erupts into colourful blooms. Exploring the Churchill Wildlife Management by Tundra Buggy, you will have the chance to see a multitude of northern wildlife. You might even have the opportunity to see the first of the summer polar bears as they migrate into the area.
