Arctic Canada

Arctic Canada in July

July weather & where to go

July sees over 60,000 beluga whales descending on Hudson Bay in the heart of Arctic Canada and depending on the tides and weather conditions, you should have the opportunity to head onto the waters at Hudson Bay to see these amazing creatures. If you’re willing the brave the cold, you can don a dry suit and swim with them too! 

Beluga whales calve in their thousands during this month in the protection on Hudson Bay so our guides will let you know when and where it is safe to swim.

Canadians celebrate their national day on the 1st July each year which sees swimmers take a dip in the Hudson Bay, complete with crazy costumes. A slightly different photographic subject, but nonetheless, entertaining.

Sea ice doesn’t finish breaking up and melting away until the middle to end of July and this, in turn, sees polar bears hunting on the shores rather than the pack ice as they do during the winter. Another fascinating chance to see the King of the Arctic up close and get some interesting shots of polar bears against grassy backdrops rather than snowy ones!

July is a superb month for keen twitchers who should head to Churchill to witness the massive bird migration. Around 270 species have been recorded here, so get your cameras and binoculars ready and keep an eye out for fulmars, guillemots and puffins. Our guides will be on hand to help you spot and identify as many species as you can.
