Churchill is a town in northern Manitoba, Canada, on the west shore of Hudson Bay. It is most famous for the many polar bears that move toward the shore from inland in the autumn, leading to the nickname “Polar Bear Capital of the World” that has helped its growing tourism industry.

Tourists can safely view polar bears from specially modified vehicles built to navigate the tundra terrain. There are also opportunities to see polar bears in the non-winter months, with tours via boat visiting the coastal areas where polar bears can be found both on land and swimming in the sea.

Thousands of beluga whales, which move into the warmer waters of the Churchill River estuary during July and August to calf, are a major summer attraction. Churchill is also a destination for bird watchers from late May until August.

Niagara Falls illumination is a must for any visitor!
