As the sea ice retreats in July and August thousands of beluga whales gather to the south-western coast of Hudson Bay to feed, molt and give birth in the warmer waters of the river estuaries. This is the highest concentrations of belugas in the world and so this is one of the best places to view them. Additionally this can be a good time to spot a few polar bears as they return to the land to forage along the shoreline or amongst the tundra over the summer months. It is possible to spend several days in and around Churchill to look for these fascinating creatures as well as a range of other arctic wildlife such as seals, arctic hares, foxes, mink, martens and occasionally wolves and moose. There is of course a cacophony of birdlife as well, and this is a great time to get the binoculars out and look for interesting and unique estuarine and marine birdlife.

This experience is part of a package which includes four nights in Churchill and a night either side in Winnipeg, giving you plenty of time to look for wildlife and experience the magnificent tundra in summer.
