This rugged Canadian frontier town on the Hudson Bay of north Manitoba is a spectacular base from which to spot Arctic wildlife, including the region's famous polar bears. Churchill cruises typically follow Arctic and Greenland itineraries, and feature excursions centered on the natural wonders of the Arctic. At night, the northern lights come to life in Manitoba's winter sky.
Many Churchill sailings offer Zodiac excursions to the mouth of the Churchill River, where cruisers can kayak among beluga whales. Outside of Churchill, tours might travel across the tundra to seek out polar bears and Arctic foxes.
