Churchill Summer is a unique time of year in the region. Life explodes all around the tundra and waters of the Hudson Bay and the Churchill River! With news that the train line could be under repair during this summer, the mood of the season has taken on another level of optimism. It’s always an amazing time to be in Churchill!

Churchill Weekly Photos – Signs of Summer

There is no better time than summertime in Churchill. The sights around the tundra and out on the Churchill River and Hudson Bay take up days and days of exploring. There’s never enough time to discover all the treasures of the summer season. Here are some images to give a sample of the action that’s starting to take hold in the north. Enjoy!

Churchill Photo of the Week

Churchill river break up and sunset

The Churchill River is gorgeous during the spring break – up! Alex De Vries – Magnifico photo.

There’s nothing more awe-inspiring and beautiful in Churchill than the annual Churchill River ice break – up in the spring. This image by Discover Churchill with the sunset flowing across the ice floes is an amazing shot! Looking forward to all the life springing up across the bountiful tundra and waters of Churchill.

Churchill Photo of the Week

Cinnamon black bear churchill

Cinnamon Black Bear shows up in Churchill. Rhonda Reid photo.

This cinnamon black bear was “captured” via camera by Rhonda Reid in Churchill. Black bears have been more regularly spotted further north over the last 20 years. Churchill has become quite the melting pot of animal species as the climate changes more and more. We are still quite surprised every time we get a look at another bear beside the King of the North! Polar bears still dominate the landscape though we are surely seeing an increase in these other species of bears.
