Overview


This is truly a trip of a lifetime. Travel to the remote town of Churchill in Northern Manitoba on Hudson Bay and stay at Seal River Heritage Lodge where you have endless opportunities to experience unique wilderness activities including walking with polar bears and swimming with beluga whales.

Although beluga whales and polar bears are the main attraction to the Hudson Bay lowlands, the area is teeming with wildlife such as moose, caribou, wolves, arctic fox, black bears, seals and a plethora of migratory and shorebirds.

Five days of activities from Seal River Heritage Lodge are included, with daily walking tours and trekking through the vastness of the Arctic's flora and fauna, marine tours in search for beluga whales with boat equipped with hydrophones so you can listen to whale songs. Explore the coast on especially adapted all terrain Tundra Trackers in search of polar bears and other wildlife or don a dry suit and plunge in to the cold waters to swim with beluga whales.
