The Lords of the Arctic program through the Studies Center....amazing. Entire week was a joy...meeting folks from abroad, delectable cuisine, thought provoking talks and tours that help one to look outside the box. Rupert was an excellent scholar of bears and the changing environment....a delight to listen to and explore the area. I encourage all to seek this and other... More

What a fantastic educational facility. Really neat look out point and lots of neat information including an aquarium featuring some of the aquatic species found in the bay.

First night with Natural Habitat, we went out to Northern Studies Center and heard Dr. Leanne speak about the numerous projects they are working on and how it relates to the area. We also saw the aquarium and interesting aquatic life (who would have guessed anemones in the Hudson Bay) My sister got to see the first bear while viewing... More

Sleep quality of the accommodation is good. Meals are balanced and sufficient. There is a... More

This was a wonderful place to stay with a pre-arranged group. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The beds were comfortable. The food was good and plentiful. The advantage to staying outside of town was being close to the bears and being able to see the Northern Lights!

We found nothing to complain about in this lovely hotel. The breakfast was very nice and the bedding was so wonderful we ordered a similar comforter as soon as we got home. The staff was also very attentive and accommodating

It was an amazing experience hosted by true professionals passionate about the climate and its effects on the wildlife and ecosystems of Hudson Bay Canada. I met amazing like minded people who I am honoured to now call friends. The Science team in Churchill are... More

From reading the reviews here, we were very disappointed that there was no one around to tell us about the place. There is no sign outside inviting you in, nothing. We entered only because we read reviews here. They were ready to take our money, though, in the Gift Shop.
