Day 1 Winnipeg/Churchill

Meet at a private hanger in Winnipeg by no later than 6:45am for an early morning flight to Churchill. Opt to take a town and area historical tour, go dog sledding (must be pre-booked), or visit the museum and Parks Canada visitor centre.

Meet at a private hanger in Winnipeg (located at 30 Hangar Line Rd.) by no later than 6:45am for your early morning flight, a cold boxed breakfast will be served inflight. Arrive mid-morning with option to take a town and area historical tour, helicopter flight or go dog sledding (must be pre-booked), or visit the museum and Parks Canada Visitor Centre. If you are interested in dog sledding, it must be pre-booked directly with the local supplier (unfortunately G Adventures cannot do this for you - nor can we intervene in any way once you have booked and paid). We recommend www.wapuskadventures.com and dogsledding excursion should be booked on the afternoon of Day 1 of your tour. It is highly suggested that guests visit the Parks Canada Interpretive Centre and the Eskimo Museum (closed on Sundays). The interpretive centre exhibits the human and natural history of the area and the Eskimo Museum is known for its beautiful Inuit carvings and artifacts. Churchill is a small, northern community with a lot of character; you won't find one of the big-chain hotels here or gourmet restaurants. You will, however, find warm, down-home hospitality and clean, comfortable hotels with all the amenities. Staying in town will allow you to walk to and from the different venues, spend some time on your own, and perhaps meet some of the locals. Churchill is located on the south western shores of the Hudson Bay at the mouth of the historic Churchill River, approx. 1000 kilometers north of Winnipeg. At a latitude of 58.47 N, Churchill is accessible by air and rail. This small Northern community has a population of approx. 1100 persons. Churchill, Manitoba is located along the treeline or the northern edge of the Boreal Forest, Churchill attracts arctic and boreal species of wildlife, birds and plants. Commonly seen species include Arctic and Red Foxes, Arctic Hare, Caribou, Gyrfalcons, Snowy Owls, Ptarmigan and in the Summer (June-Aug), Beluga whales. Churchill lies underneath the Auroral Oval, an area of high intensity, high frequency auroral activity. They often get the best northern lights displays on the planet. While the best time to view the Northern lights is in mid-winter (Jan-Feb), if you are lucky, it is still possible to view them in October-Nov.
