The town of Churchill is a starting point for many adventures into this untamed wilderness and visiting the various parks and attractions is an experience in itself, as you venture aboard expedition ships, soar above the tundra by helicopter or navigate the desolate plains in a self-contained tundra vehicle. Arviat is a remote town that boasts the famous Polar Bear Alley, where these lovable white bears gather between October and November. Baffin Island surprises some for being the fifth largest island in the world and is a land of glaciers, fjords, streams and mountains with excellent wildlife spotting.
