Birds, Bears and Belugas takes place at Seal River Heritage Lodge, and combines the thrill of beluga whale watching in July and August with the adventure of Churchill Wild’s signature “on the ground” polar bear walking safaris. Seal River Heritage Lodge is situated in the vast coastal “polar bear waiting room” on the Hudson Bay coast, and the bears provide fantastic viewing opportunities for us as they wile away the summer waiting for the sea ice to return.

The "Polar Bear Capital of the World," the town of Churchill transports visitors to an authentic experience within the tundra of Manitoba Canada. An ecotourists' dream, watch the polar bear migration across the ice of the Hudson Bay from the safety of a "tundra buggie." In the summer, witness the beluga whales who enjoy the warm waters of the Churchill River. Gaze in awe at the stunning aurora borealis, which comes to life during the winter nights in a spectacular show of colors, lights and true natural beauty.
Manitoba is in the heart of Canada. It is renowned for dramatic landscapes, a surprising cultural heritage and warm and friendly people. For a unique perspective take the train to Churchill in Northern Manitoba and see the polar bears. Visit the wonderful city of Winnipeg. This is a thriving cultural center and has a premier ballet company The Royal Winnipeg Ballet. In Western Manitoba visit the scenic Riding Mountain National Park. The excellent beaches of Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg are ocean-like paradises in the center of North America.
Winnipeg surprises. It's a large and cosmopolitan city rising from the vast plains of southern Manitoba, not the regional town some may expect. Winnipeg is home to the world-class Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Blue Bombers football team and many other treasures. Fine museums, good local transit and a stimulating, multicultural atmosphere contribute to the sophistication.
Settlers in Winnipeg have included indigenous aboriginal people, French- and English-speaking Canadians, Germans, Ukrainians, Chinese, Filipinos and others. This mix gives the town its international flavor, which manifests in a wonderful variety of markets, restaurants and cultural centers.
This sophistication is nicely balanced by the town's wide-open, Western feel, its proximity to the surrounding farmlands and by the fact that it's relatively small, as big cities go. Winnipeg is easy to get to know and yet complex enough for an interesting visit.
