Average time to visit

Manitoba has a typically dry climate with very distinct seasons that have sharp temperature changes. During the winter months, temperatures can be as low as -40 degrees celsius, and in the summer months, temperatures of 38 degrees celsius are not uncommon. The snow is deeper than 1cm for over 130 days of the year, so the region is known for its long winter and snowy conditions. Despite the coldness, skies are often completely clear and due to very low levels of pollution, stargazing and northern lights viewing are excellent nighttime activities.

This arctic adventure offers a unique experience; stay in a cosy remote wilderness lodge situated on the Hudson Bay, deep in the natural habitat of the Great Ice Bear.

  2. Days 2-6: Manitoba

    Journey further north, you will arrive to Churchill by plane where expedition guides will meet you to transfer further into the arctic tundra and to your wilderness lodge. Your next flight will take you over the Hudson Bay and Churchill River, keep an eye out for arctic wildlife, including caribou, moose, seals, wolves and of course the “Great Ice Bears”.
