This morning after meeting with their Frontiers North Interpretive Guide, the group will depart on the flight from Winnipeg to Churchill. Upon arrival in Churchill, set out for a Churchill and area tour visiting local and historical points of interest including Manitoba Conservation’s Polar Bear Holding Facility.

This afternoon following lunch at a local restaurant, the group will step back in time at the Parks Canada Visitor Centre, located in Churchill’s historic train station, to experience a “Taste of the Fur Trade”. Guests will learn how integral food items of the 18th century such as hard tack, bannock, dry-ground cranberries and smoke cured arctic char made their way onto the tables of the Hudson’s Bay Company employees stationed at Prince of Wales Fort during the fur trade era.

Following dinner at a local restaurant, our very first night of aurora viewing awaits! The group will board an official Tundra Buggy® and depart Churchill by making their way across the frozen Churchill River. Surrounded by the beautiful northern tundra landscape, the remainder of the evening will be spent watching and photographing Mother Nature’s light show from the warmth and comfort of the Thanadelthur Lounge. For an even more immersive experience, grab a seat outdoors in the snow or head up to the rooftop observation deck for unobstructed views.

Day 4

Today the group will be picked up in the late morning for lunch followed by an afternoon of leisurely snowshoeing. Upon arrival at our destination, enjoy a meal on board the Tundra Buggy surrounded by the striking winter landscape.

Next, embark on an interpretive snowshoeing adventure at a relaxed pace through Churchill’s boreal forest and along the shore of the frozen Hudson Bay. Followed by a visit of the Itsanitaq Museum, home to one of Canada’s finest collections of Inuit carvings, kayaks and artifacts dating from pre-Dorset, Dorset, Thule and modern Inuit times.

We will get to engage in a unique hands on workshop with a local artist, coming away with a special keepsake to remember our Churchill adventure by. A very special dinner awaits us this evening. To get there, we’ll once again board an official Tundra Buggy® and begin the journey across the frozen Churchill River away from the lights of town. Arrive at Dan’s Diner to experience a one-of-a-kind, pop-up restaurant nestled on the snow-steeped bank of the Churchill River in the Canadian subarctic. Designed to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere with a panoramic view of the dark night skies, guests will watch the northern lights dance while they enjoy a masterfully curated menu with courses inspired by regional delicacies from the land and sea. Heated for guests’ comfort with skylights for northern lights viewing, it’s the ultimate fine dining experience. After a dream-like evening, the group will slowly meander back to town aboard the Tundra Buggy.
