You stand at the fort and think about the harsh conditions people endured when this fort was built over many years. There names are etched on a nearby rock. The fort is worth a visit. You also may see a polar bear walking nearby.

This site is a short kodiak ride across the bay to the fort. If the weather is good and the time is right you will also see the bay filled with beluga whales. This historic site gives the history buff a real insight to life...More

This is one of the basic Churchill sightseeing spots. As you go there to see bears or belugas, this would qualify as crumbs from the cupcake. Nevertheless, it's worth inspecting.
