Day 1: Arrive in Winnipeg

Arrive in Winnipeg, where you will enjoy a relaxing stay at the choice hotel, The Grand by Lakeview at the Winnipeg Airport. A representative of Churchill Wild will host an orientation dinner where you can get to know the other members of your group.

*NoteChurchill Wild reserves the right to make changes to this itinerary due to weather and logistical complications that can arise from traveling in the north and to remote locations.

Day 2: Fly to Churchill | Fly to the Lodge

Arrive in Churchill by air, where one of the expert staff will meet you at the airport and provide you with instructions for the morning transfers. Your adventure begins with an aerial flight over the winding Hudson Bay coast en route to your home for the next six days, Seal River Heritage Lodge. Watch out for pods of whales, birds, and, of course, the magnificent ice bears. The Seal River Estuary is a summer favorite for these goliaths, and they are seen swimming or basking near the water’s edge.

Upon arrival, your hosts will provide a tour of the lodge and get you settled into your room. A thorough orientation on travel in polar bear country will be provided prior to any outings.

After lunch, you’ll experience the coast for the first time. Ensure your camera batteries are charged! Back at the lodge, enjoy appetizer hour, followed by one of the signature meals. Evenings typically include an informative lecture or slide show presentation narrated by one of Churchill Wild’s knowledgeable guides or staff.

Day 3-6: Seal River Adventure Activities

After breakfast, head out for either a marine tour or a hike. Lunch will typically be back at the lodge unless your guides take you on an ATV excursion further down the coast. Marine tours are tide-dependent, so scheduled mealtimes may be adjusted to accommodate whale watching.
Relive the excitement of the day during the daily appetizer hour before sitting down to dinner, then top up your glass of wine and settle in for the evening’s presentation.

Bedtime is at your leisure. The Lodge area will be monitored all night, so be prepared to have your sleep cut short by a nocturnal visit from one of the great ice bears (or by one of our dazzling displays of northern lights!)

Day 7: Fly to Churchill | Fly back to Winnipeg

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
After one last hearty lodge breakfast, you will begin air transfers back to Churchill. Have your cameras ready for the return flight, as it affords excellent opportunities for great aerial shots.

Back in Churchill, you’ll spend the day with one of our tour guides exploring the town and surrounding area, learning about its rich history as a seaport and ex-military base. Your tour will include stops such as the Parks Canada exhibit, the Itsanitaq Museum, and the Polar Bear Jail. Along the way, your guide will point out murals that were commissioned in 2016 as part of the SeaWalls mural festival. Before a group dinner, your guide will give you free time to shop for last-minute souvenirs at the unique gift stores in Churchill.

Your flight south to Winnipeg will take place this evening. Upon arrival, collect your bags, head out of the arrivals doors, and return to The Grand Hotel.

Day 8: Return Home

After a restful sleep, you will pack your bags and prepare for your flight home.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
