Summary

Unwind on a 2-night train ride winding through the vast wilderness of Manitoba and Saskatchewan going to Churchill, where the cuddly furry lords of the arctic await. Snuggle up with your favorite book or sip a cup of coffee as your train slowly chugs across acres of grasslands, poplar fringed wheat fields, and amazing stretches of prairie and woodlands. Peer through the window and see the stunted spruce, larch, and boggy muskeg give way to the Arctic tundra, welcoming you to the majestic land of Churchill - the polar bear capital of the world. Spend plenty of time watching majestic bears from your tough buggy but keep your eyes peeled for other wild sightings - Arctic fox, Arctic hare, and caribou might just be lurking around the tundra and taiga forest. Complete your Churchill experience with dog sledding excursion, a cultural tour, and a visit to Parks Canada Interpretive Centre & Itsanitaq Museum.

Tour starts from Winnipeg.
