All reviews interesting history parks canada prince of wales hudson bay company fur trade beluga whales dressed in period costume polar bear brought history to life canadian history walking tour informative tour wild flowers park ranger worth a visit samuel boat
The guide made it worth it. GREAT Stories. A ranger (besides the guide) is out with you watching for polar bears (with a rifle). Interesting history. Could see Hudson Bay starting to freeze. The wind was fierce!
When the English dominated the area, part of their effort included the construction of the fort as well as a battery across the river as part of their defensive strategy. Fortunately the fort was never tested, but it did provide security for this strategic location...More
Jill had to step in at short notice to be our guide but did a very good job seeing that it was history she was talking about and her forte is science. A polar bear was on the loose at the time so we were...More
on our way to the fort I thought this isn't for me but once there found it so interesting especially about the history of fur traders and the fort itself we had an excellant tour guide this was so interesting
You can only get to the fort by transportation from a local private company -- Parks Canada does not provide transport to or from the fort.The fort, part of Parks Canada, is currently under restoration. The friendly staff provide a interesting look at Canadian fur...More
Arrived by tundra buggy to see Prince of Wales Fort and have dinner at the pop up restaurant RAW:Churchill. Fort is very cool. Bear guard to keep us safe. Docent gave great presentation/information on the fort. Dinner at RAW: Churchill was great. Highly recommend a...More
We were on a boat ride to see some whales and much to our surprise this was an included bonus. It is a good story and the fort is ok, but we were there over an hour and people were getting mad and wanted to...More
This was one of our first stops on our town tour of Churchill, on one of the extremely rare full sun and no wind days in town! No costumed guides at this time of year but we still learned quite a lot of the history...More

Hello, I visited in July. Two good places to eat in Churchill are the Tundra Inn Restaurant and Pub, across from the Tundra Inn. Another good place is Gypsy's Bakery. Everything is close together in Churchill, not too far to walk. There is also a grocery store which sells everything possible. Enjoy!

We took two different tours, one the fort and estuary and the other the sloth trail. This is the one you go over in zodiac and walk the area and come out the outside of the Fort. I went first week of July, we saw a lot of birds tundra, lots of flowers. We saw caribou tracks but no caribou, but it's nature, hit and miss. We also took the tundra buggy tour and it is a day long and it was good. Also the trails half day tour I'd excellent, it gives you the lay of the land, saw a lot on this. This was our first tour when we arrived in Churchill and I highly recommend this tour. It was by frontiers north. You tour the town and then go out of town and tour the area. All the tours are about the same price, but all were well worth it. Check sea north, tundra buggy and frontiers websites. Hope this helps
