Overview

In the summer, Churchill comes to life with a carpet of wildflowers on the tundra; animals, including caribou, on the move; and abundant birdlife. Perhaps most impressive is the migration of some 3,000 beluga whales into the Seal and Churchill rivers, where we observe these ghost-like creatures often at arm’s length. We may also have opportunities to view mother polar bears with cubs, as they remain in the area all summer long.

Accommodations

Tundra Train
Our train journey takes us through a variety of unique habitats, from vast open plains to boreal forest to northern tundra. Our sleeper train provides a unique and exciting way to experience these northern environs, giving travelers a modern mode of transport reminiscent of days gone by. The cabins are cozy and comfortable.  Each cabin has windows and private facilities (showers in the hall), and the meals are taken in the dining car as we absorb the rare and unique passing environment.

Winnipeg
In Winnipeg, we stay at the Fort Garry Hotel, one of Canada’s lavish railway hotels built by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in 1913 and long a symbol of the prairie city’s importance as a transportation and commerce hub.  Located downtown one block from Union Station, this historic landmark and gracious accommodation built in French chateau style is Winnipeg’s finest hotel, exuding an atmosphere of the opulence that prevailed during the glory days of the development of the Canadian West. Relax in the lounge, enjoy a drink in the antique bar, or indulge in a sumptuous treatment at Ten Spa, an authentic Turkish-style bath and spa.

Churchill Hotels
In the Arctic frontier outpost of Churchill, hotels are small and simple. They are clean, comfortable and conveniently located in the center of town. Every room has its own private bathroom with a shower. Please be aware that hotel space in Churchill is scarce, and to accommodate demand we must use a variety of local properties. Room size, amenities, and range of services may vary among hotels despite comparable pricing.
