Canada’s safari ‘Big Five’ animals, bison, black bears, belugas, polar bears and moose, make this area home. The Big Five are seen on Tundra-Buggy wildlife drives – best taken in September – October which is also the ideal timing for dog-sledding adventures. Churchill’s skies are lit up more than 300 nights per year with the Northern Lights, and its position directly under the auroral oval provides among the world’s best viewing. There’s an opportunity to venture to the Prince of Wales Fort for a meal under the stars with RAW:Churchill, only available in Winter. Under a transparent roof inside the historical fort, groups of up to 20 guests are served a regional menu by one of Canada’s top chefs.
There are no roads to Churchill, and with only one commercial carrier flying into Churchill, Adventure World advises to book your client’s well in advance. Adventure World’s two recommended itineraries include return flights from Winnipeg and if booked before 31 August, the single supplement is waived on remaining 2018 departures. Tundra Buggy Lodge – Although this trip includes a night in Churchill as part of the tour, most guests who choose to stay at the Lodge at Polar Bear Point won’t get to experience Churchill’s nightlife. The seven day trip is now priced from $11,222pp. Churchill Town and Tundra – Guests staying at a hotel in Churchill have the chance to visit the Tundra Inn Pub in the evenings, and explore the town of Churchill at their own pace. The six day trip is now priced from $8735pp. www.adventureworld.co.nz
