- Absolutely brilliant place- just wish that Churchill Wild had let us stay here longer, instead of taking us to shops afterwards. Great amount of very interesting items to read about- we loved it.

- We joined a relatively short but fund and interesting talk with Eric who, in a very energetic and entertaining way, taught us about the history of Churchill and the region.
Eric also helped to talk us through the exhibits in the centre.

- The craftsmenship is unique and well-done. After two trips to Churchill, the best representative jewelry that I found was as the Churchill Airport by Here Be Bears. As a nature program presenter, I wear my bear track earrings frequently, always to compliments. Then one went missing! So five years later I ordered another set and added the Mom with cubs. They are still top quality, came quickly, very-well wrapped and with two fun older postcards of Churchill.Written October 29, 2023
- It was a cold day to tour the fort but so glad we did. Turns out this is one of the places where they release captive polar bears in the summertime so seeing bears outside the fort is not at all unusual. We had a great tour guide whose sense of humor was such a delight. Loved learning the history of the area in such an interesting and humorous way.Written August 27, 2023
- The park is very beautiful and wild. You need a guide to enter the park but it is well worth it. We went dog sledding in the park and it was fantastic!Written December 8, 2019
- We came back through Churchill after our holiday with Churchill Wild at their 2 lodges- Seal River- excellent and Nanuk- less good. Our small plane landed at a separate part of airport for light aircraft and we were met by Christine, our guide for our 4 hours in Churchill.
We learnt that Churchill is an arctic sea port with Caucasian activity since the 1700's.Prior to that, it had Dorset people, then Thule displaced them about 1000 AD. Then Cree and Dene people joined them. Europeans came here trying to find the NW passage to spice-rich orient and the fur trade from Hudson Bay started in Churchill. Now, only about 870 people live here all year around- but in the cold war it had up to 5,000 people! Hence many roads were made that are now in disuse.
In the past, polar bears in Churchill were shot, but fortunately that has now stopped! Signs are everywhere to warn one not to go out at night or past the monitored safer area. All cars are left unlocked in Churchill, as are homes on the road, so that if one needs a safe place, one can get into place of safety. I love that. This road takes one from airport along the the shore of the Hudson Bay. You pass lots of other places such as Miss Piggy, the iconic Inukshuk in Churchill, that I have also reviewed separately here.
Very different from anywhere else I have been.Written November 26, 2023
- Just a plane wreck, we drove by but did not get out to walk around it... Wasn't what we were there for.Written October 30, 2022
- Our tour brought us here for a short walk to the walls. It's a beautiful place and the beluga whales were in the water.Written August 7, 2023
- The train ride was beautiful, coming and going, and the crew Len, Jen and Holly were excellent, kind and attentive.
Food wasn’t great but the price was high, which came as a surprise given that food is usually included for sleeper class. We were informed ahead of time that meals were not included on this run, but $11.50 for a glass of wine and $4 for sparkling water was too high.Written December 4, 2023
- Jenafor and Gerald are such lovely people and their dogs are amazing. The late-night trip back to their "tent" (cabin) was an unexpected bonus. Great day, thank you both!Written November 20, 2023
- We were taught about this important facility on our trip through Churchill, after we landed on the gravel airstrip from our light 'plane from the Churchill Wild lodge. We had leant about how polar bears are managed in Churchill. In the past, polar bears that wandered into the town were shot, but it only aggravated conflicts between the two species- man and bears. So in the 1970s, Churchill adopted the Polar Bear Alert Program, as environmentalist realised the bears are becoming extinct and this is their home and not ours! So, now they are discouraged from entering the town. Now, when people spot a bear, they call a hotline number and staff from the Program then tries to scare the bear away by firing crackers shells or rubber bullets. If that doesn’t work, the bear is tranquilized and taken to a holding facility—the world’s only polar bear jail. Persistent offenders, who enter the town are taken to the jail. they used to be fed, but now are only given water and then removed by helicopter to far away, after tagging.
Churchill is mostly a polar bears’ town, with nearly 800 of them living in the vicinity. That number swells to 10,000 during the hunting season. That’s the best time to watch polar bears.Written November 26, 2023
- I got to visit PBI as part of a tour, and I’m so glad for the experience! Alyssa was our guide and we learned so much about polar bears, how they live and raise their cubs, their struggles on and off the sea ice, and about all of the research and work being done to protect this magnificent marine mammal. Climate change is real and it is impacting polar bears (and all of us) more than we realize!Written November 29, 2023
