  • Day 2: Viva Churchill

    Today, the adventure truly kicks off as you depart from Winnipeg on an early flight bound for the remote and tiny town of Churchill. After touching down and being smoothly transferred to your hotel, your explorations commence with a Churchill and area tour, including visits to the Parks Canada Visitor Centre and Polar Bears International House.
    Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.
    Wear comfortable and insulated waterproof boots for outdoor activities to keep your feet warm and dry. Look for boots with a rugged and grippy outsole and opt for boots with a higher ankle design.
