Highlights

• The readily-accessible Arctic tundra with its splendid wildlife at Churchill

• The diverse and productive prairies, wetlands and forests of southern Manitoba, including the superb Riding Mountain National Park

 

Overview

This tour takes in two incredible areas of Manitoba – the prairies and boreal forest of the south and the tundra and arctic ocean of Churchill.

Our first location is the boreal forest of Riding Mountain National Park. Here we explore the park in search of forest birds plus mammals including black bear, moose, elk, red fox, and beaver. A variety of warblers along with a diverse suite of other birds can be found in the varied habitat of this park.

We fly north to Churchill in search of belugas and other arctic wildlife. Every year, tremendous numbers of beluga whales gather in the waters of the Churchill river. We take two boat trips to observe the whales and hear their vocalizations via hydrophone. Exploring the tundra, we also have a chance to find arctic fox and hare and with luck, even a polar bear! This is also prime time for arctic breeding birds. Loons, eiders, shorebirds, longspurs and much more will all be making the most of the arctic summer.
