Northern Exposure

For the traveler who wants to see Canada’s Far North, Churchill offers a unique opportunity. It’s on the shores of Hudson Bay and the site of epic migrations of beluga whales and polar bears, and yet it’s less than two hours by plane from Winnipeg. Will Kiburz of Coronet Travel has created an itinerary that lets you experience Manitoba’s capital on a Friday night, and be on the tundra by noon the next day.
