Can't Beat the Heat?

Posted by Contributor

Are you looking for something nice and cool to do this summer? How about something really cool that's also cool? Dubbed the "Polar Bear Capital of the World", Churchill, Manitoba is a popular getaway among numerous people and it's one of the most popular tourism destinations in the world for viewing polar bears in their natural habitat. What makes Churchill so unique? First off, you can't reach Churchill by road at all. Nestled in northern Manitoba along the southwestern portion of the frigid Hudson Bay, there are no roads connecting this town of just under 1,000 to the rest of Canada. The only ways to reach Churchill are by air, train, or boat (Churchill has a port, but unless you're commanding a vessel through the bay ice, we recommend you don't sail there). Churchill is a great spot to watch the Northern Lights and it's also a great spot to come see the polar bears, the main driver for Churchill's tourism economy. You can go out on the ice in a great tundra buggy and truly immerse yourself in polar bear country. A remote town that is truly off-the-grid, Churchill is a must-see for anyone looking to connect with nature.
