This is no regular log cabin. The timber was reclaimed from a fire in the boreal forest. Using hand tools, the logs fit together so well as to appear as if they were melted into each other. The windows were recycled from an 1800's Hudson Bay Trading Post, and if you look closely, you'll see the characteristic wave of the old glass.

Nice, basic room, excellent restaurant, helpful staff. All tours were arranged by Lazy Bear which made things easy. Toured the town, went on the excursions and saw Polar Bears and kyaked with the Belugas. Knowledgeable guides knew so much of historic and current interest of the area. Wonderful trip!

With all of the Covid travel restrictions, I doubled down this summer and threw in another trip in my own province of Manitoba. This time I went for the extreme north, and flew with Calm Air to Churchill and the Lazy Bear Lodge. On the shore of massive Hudson Bay - it's so big it really should be called an ocean - Churchill is a world away from big city life; it's even a shock coming up from our humble small-city 'burg of Winnipeg. With about 800 people, the town is a small fraction of what it was in the 60s and 70s, when Canadian and U.S. military monitored the north from this location. But being small isn't a detriment here. Over a 4 -day period, we were paraded through boreal forest, over tundra, and then onto the stark waters of the bay. On land in a huge tundra buggy - the world's biggest off-road vehicles - on water in a zodiac boat, and flying over the amazing topography in a helicopter, we got to see most of what the true north has to offer; Polar bears, beluga whales, and dog sled teams will keep your eyes focused. Then at night, the sky lights up with the aurora borealis. The rustic but luxurious Lazy bear Lodge offers a so-unique travel experience. Built from reclaimed timbers and other materials, the lodge is a true 'green' project. Inside, the rooms are large and cozy, the meals are gourmet, and the friendly staff are happy to bring you a cappuccino, decorated with a whale's tail, a bear, or whatever they can think of that day. With all of the touring, you won't mind that the town doesn't offer a lot of entertainment options. But I got to meet a few of the locals at the town pub, and had a fill of interesting stories. Then back to my room, ever-so-cautious on my late-night walk back to the Lodge, hoping for another, but up-closer view of the big white bears that occasionally walk the town roads like stray dogs. So maybe it's better I didn't get that visit? The whales are in the river in late summer until mid September; the bears are just starting to be seen in the middle of this month; the night light show, the Aurora Borealis, is a regular contributor to the town's nightlife; you'll see greenscape if there in summer and again up to September, when fall colors stand out;. If you want snow and ice, come in October and November when the big white stars of the show are on stage.

The hotel, in addition to be extremely comfortable, is linked to a great cafe/restaurant where you'll be able to get very VERY good food. Totally recommend the elk and arctic char. Entirely built in wood, the interior feels really cozy and the display of wild antlers and furs makes you feel as if you were in a trapping expedition. Don't forget to register at the front desk to be woken up if the northern lights show up!

I have just had the most amazing experience with Lazy Bear Lodge. Lazy bear lodge was brilliant they could not have taken better care of us, from the organised taxi at Winnipeg (although the driver was not impressed with my daughters heavy suitcase and drove off without taking his tip). Pick up from the Forks Inn by Lazy bear staff and return to The Hilton Airport hotel where we given an executive suite to stay in overnight, the charter flight, the whole experience in Churchill we saw so many polar bears, an artic fox and Balaguer whales who should have left Hudson bay weeks before, even our guide Debs was surprised. Lazy Bear lodge is amazing and the staff could not be more helpful.
