Fly from UK to Winnipeg
Fly on to Churchill and spend the next four days at the cosy Lazy Bear Lodge. You’ll set sail across the beautiful Hudson Bay to remote polar bear viewing areas and watch the bears swimming and walking among the wildflowers, tour Hudson Bay and set off on a wildlife watching adventure across the Tundra. If you’re very lucky you may even spot the Northern Lights dancing in the sky above you. Choose to see the distinctive white beluga whale up close with a kayaking trip or, better yet, don your arctic dry suite and snorkel with these magnificent creatures (optional, extra cost).
Lazy Bear Lodge
Return to Winnipeg for the night. Within the city limits you’ll find a wealth of historical diversions including The Forks, a food market housed in a former horse stable by the Red River. Come here for international dishes in the food court, handicraft stalls and ice skating in winter. Don’t miss the Manitoba Legislative Building, a 1920s neoclassical building on the top of which stands the Golden Boy, a 5.25-metre, 23.5 carat gold-covered statue cast in 1918 in France and recognised citywide.
