Churchill welcomes travelers to town for another exciting northern lights season. This shot from Alex de Vries – Magnifico is one of our all-time favorites and portrays the spirit of this beautiful awe-inspiring time of year in Churchill! Keep an eye out for field reports and tantalizing images from the far north and Churchill region!
Beluga whales have descended upon the Churchill region and the seasonal pull of the warmer water and shallow estuaries of freshwater rivers are driving the migration once again. Having spent over 10 seasons guiding in Churchill, I know the feeling of returning to the region and sharing the waters with thousands of these magical creatures. This is truly one of the most magical experiences on Earth!
Cold temperatures and snow have descended on the Churchill region and the annual talk of an early freeze-up of the Hudson Bay has started. Wildlife, on the other hand, is plentiful and all about the tundra. Polar bears abound as they wait for ice in the bay. Check out these awesome shots from Natural Habitat Adventures guides in Churchill. We are all keeping a keen eye on the weather and hoping for a south wind to blow the ice that has formed already back north. Stay posted for information on the conditions in the Hudson Bay!
Check out these fantastic polar bear images from past Churchill seasons. We are excited to have the polar bear season starting up in the north Churchill region. Stay posted for all the news and photos from the tundra!
These amazing images from Churchill were taken last week by Natural Habitat Adventures guide Eddy Savage while exploring the tundra and water around the area. This particular group literally found some treasure under a rainbow when they came across a caribou on the tundra. Other incredible beluga whale encounters were quite close up with the zodiacs. A beautiful red fox was quite inquisitive toward the group and posed for some of the best shots we have seen in a long time.
All in all the weather for the week cooperated for the incredible wildlife viewing and a full exploration of the Churchill region was successful. What a week for seeing all the treasures around every rock or inlet in Churchill and on the water!
