Churchill is possibly the best place to see polar bears, beluga whales and aurora borealis

Aurora Borealis

Aurora Borealis

The aurora borealis is a natural phenomenon caused by the interaction of charged particles from the sun with atoms in the upper atmosphere. Churchill is one of the top three places on the planet to see aurora borealis. Aurora Borealis season is from mid-November to mid-April.

 

Polar bears

Polar bears

Churchill is one of the few human settlements where you can come face to face with the polar bears from unique tundra vehicles that let you travel in comfort and safety over the snowy terrain. You’re almost guaranteed to see your fill of Polar bears if you visit Churchill during October or November.

 

Beluga whales

Beluga whales

Thousands of beluga whales inhabit the warmer waters of the Churchill River after the ice breaks up. Zodiacs and larger passenger boats will take you out among these intelligent and curious creatures. In summer — anytime from mid-June through August — it’s Beluga whale season!
