The Classic Churchill Polar Bear Adventure by Train tour is led by an Interpretive Guide and includes a two-night train journey that winds through Manitoba and Saskatchewan to Churchill; a town only accessible by train or plane.

Our Classic Churchill Polar Bear Adventure by Train includes two full-day Tundra Buggy safaris in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area (CWMA), where polar bears await the freezing of the Hudson Bay. You will have plenty of opportunity to explore the CWMA for these majestic mammals and other subarctic wildlife in their natural environment.

 

Indulge in and explore the history and culture of Churchill at the Itsanitaq Museum, home to a large collection of Inuit artifacts including traditional carvings and kayaks. Next, take in the Parks Canada Visitor Centre for its in- depth displays revealing the history of Churchill, dating back to the fur trade era and beyond. You can even race through the boreal forest with a local dog musher and team of enthusiastic sled dogs by partaking in the traditional northern sport of dog sledding.
