Perched on the shores of majestic Hudson Bay, and just at the edge of the Arctic, Churchill, Manitoba, is an exciting base from which to explore some of Canada’s pristine wilderness. It is often called the “Polar Bear Capital of the World”, and indeed it is perhaps the best spot anywhere to view polar bears in their natural habitat, thanks to Churchill’s front row seat along the bears’ migratory path. The area is also home to fascinating creatures such as beluga whales, moose, caribou and wolves.
An easy flight from Winnipeg, Churchill combines the best of two worlds – it retains the atmosphere of an old frontier town while offering incentive travelers all the comforts and amenities of the modern world. The town began as a seaport in the 1920s during the heyday of the Hudson Bay Railroad, and acted as a military base in the 1950s and 60s, but today it is best known hosting international visitors who come to experience Churchill’s natural wonders.
A visit to Churchill, either as a stand-alone program or as an addition to an incentive trip based in Toronto or Vancouver, is a memorable adventure that very few corporate travelers get. The thrill of being within very close proximity to wild polar bears, the largest land-based predator in the world, in a comfortable and secure environment is truly unique! Based in specialized tundra buggies which are warm, safe and built to move over this harsh terrain, expert guides facilitate close encounters with these amazing animals. Incentive groups even have the opportunity to stay in a remote and one-of-a-kind tundra lodge, in the heart of polar bear country, for a thrilling experience viewing the polar bears up-close and around the clock.
Churchill, Manitoba truly offers an adventure that few will ever have the chance to take part in. Let Uniquely Northwest plan a polar bear viewing adventure as part of your next incentive, meeting or corporate event!
