Location of Adventure
Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
Group Size Limit
Approximately 14 Travelers
An important feature of our Arctic summer adventure is the limited group size, as nature and wildlife are best experienced with smaller numbers, for more intimate encounters and a lighter environmental footprint. 
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
R/T transportation between Winnipeg and Churchill (train and plane), accommodations, all meals, services of NHA Expedition Leaders and assistants, most gratuities, airport transfers, permits and entrance fees, all taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip, some gratuities, optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry, etc.), optional travel insurance.
Physical Requirements
Participants must be able to walk at least one mile. This trip includes several short walks (typically one to two miles) and a flexible itinerary in certain places that allows for longer optional walks for those who desire. Any required walks do not exceed a half-mile. Walks generally take place over flat terrain, though if one wishes to walk along the beach, some navigation over rocks or boulders may be involved. Travelers must be able to get into and out of rigid inflatable Zodiac rafts, which can be very unsteady when entering or leaving in rough water.  There is a chance for travelers to participate in optional snorkeling and kayaking activities that will be weather-dependent.  
Important Information About This Trip
In the summer, Churchill comes to life with a carpet of wildflowers on the tundra; animals, including caribou, on the move; and abundant birdlife. Perhaps most impressive is the migration of some 3,000 beluga whales into the Seal and Churchill rivers, where we observe these ghost-like creatures often at arm’s length. We may also have opportunities to view mother polar bears with cubs, as they remain in the area all summer long. Be aware that at times black flies or mosquitoes may be present. Because we arrange our activities to avoid the insects as much as possible, they generally are not a problem. Train timetables are unconfirmed until shortly before each departure. Changes to train schedules may affect our itinerary on Days 2 - 4. On one departure per season, we do not take the train between Winnipeg and Churchill and instead fly round-trip. The Churchill inclusions on this fly/fly departure are identical to our regular itinerary.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in time for the 7 pm welcome dinner on Day 1. You are free to depart at any time on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
