Summer in Churchill, Manitoba, is the perfect time to enjoy the roughly 60,000 beluga whales that descend on the Hudson Bay each year. In fact, summer is when the wildlife action is hottest, with polar bears leaving the pack ice that covers most of the Hudson Bay during the winter and finding places to hunt along the shore. Your group guide will take you to places that offer the best opportunities to see polar bears, beluga whales and wildlife you can’t experience anywhere else in the world. You’ll spend time on the Churchill River and a jet boat will take you to the Seal River Estuary, one of the more remote polar bear viewing areas on the west side of the Hudson Bay. You might even see polar bears actively hunting their prey on this wild adventure. Other tundra wildlife attractions include a variety of birds, wild flowers, seals, arctic hare, arctic foxes and the northern lights. A truly impressive summer experience.
