Capturing true natural beauty in Churchill
I came to Churchill with high expectations. I was expecting snow-covered tundra with lots of polar bears in their dens playing with their cubs, like stepping straight into a wildlife documentary.

Polar bear capital of the world

Waiting for the ice on Canada’s remote Hudson Bay to freeze over, they are joined by visitors from all over the world who fly in to see them.
