Experience the deep-blue-sea world of beluga whales on this Arctic summer safari to the coastal waters of Hudson Bay. Start your adventure in Winnipeg before your flight to Churchill, Manitoba. Head out into waters where thousands of white beluga whales migrate each summer to feed and give birth. Take an exhilarating dogcart ride through the boreal forest before you board a Zodiac for a guided exploration of the belugas’ prime summer habitat, the Churchill River estuary. Along the way, tour the delicate coast, explore historic sites, experience Inuit art collections at the Itsanitaq Museum and ride a Tundra Buggy® to see land-based wildlife. Your face-to-face adventures await beneath the Arctic sun.
