With the Arctic summer coming soon..although recent weather in Churchill does not point to that fact…I thought some of my favorite pics would be a good way to get travelers heading north in the mood. And, maybe some might even spur you on to book a spot on one of the most incredible trips in the far north.

Thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures. My daughter is doing her science fair project on “Polar Bears vs. Global Warming” focusing on the bear population in Churchill. We hope to someday make the trip up there to see all these beautiful creatures in person.
I am wondering if we might see whales and or bears if we came to Churchill the first week in June.
