Activities

There are plenty of Arctic activities available for you to enjoy in Churchill which will introduce you to the wildlife, culture and environment of this exciting destination. If you are staying between mid-June to August, you could go on a beluga whale-watching tour as the whales flock to the Churchill area during these months. These playful gentle giants are a pleasure to observe, and often swim just metres from the boat; a truly unforgettable experience! 

Alternatively, you may fancy heading in search of some of Churchill’s polar bears or going on an exhilarating dog sled ride with a pack of friendly fluffy huskies. Even if you are visiting during the warmer months, your chances of spotting polar bears are high, and dog sleds can be swapped for carts with wheels – all that is different is the landscape; instead of a thick snowy carpet you will be able to spot bursts of colour and life through all the wildflowers that bloom here. Churchill is also excellent for birding, as there are over 250 species that come here throughout the year on their annual migrations. 

For those wanting a cultural fix, you can book onto the Inuit Culture Programme, where you will learn about the Inuit lifestyle, history and clothing. There is also the chance to experience the spectacular Aurora Borealis (the northern lights) in this area; even on a warm summer’s night you can observe the phenomenon. Other options for your time here include exploring the town of Churchill and its shops, museums, restaurants and bars.
