If you are in Churchill definitely go on a tour of the Prince of Wales Fort. The Parcs Canada guides did a great job explaining the history of the area and the fort! Excellent place with fabulous 18th century views intact!

Yes, you do need to get here by boat and yes there is a lot of walking involved....but it is worth the visit. History was never so interesting and the tour guide brought history to life for us.

The history of the Prince of Wales Fort is interesting, but there is not much left, except the stone walls and the cannons. Again, interesting history, but spectacular location.

Very interesting archeological site left from Hudson Bay Company times. We went guided by a National Park person who explained the history and life of the site.

Just too cool - took an open air port across river to fort. Amazing to think it was originally built hundreds of years ago.

We visited the fort on a combination tour with beluga whale watching, and I honestly enjoyed the fort visit more than the time on the water. The "fort" wasn't really a military establishment, but a Hudson's Bay Company trading post. The Parks Canada guides do an outstanding job of explaining what life was like in this isolated outpost 300 years... More

If you go unescorted (which may not even be possible), the fort is just a fort with a bunch of cannon -- though the location is very scenic. Our tour group was led by Rhonda, whose explanations of the history were very informative and (as appropriate) funny.

It was freezing cold on the day that I visited and hard to enjoy but even if nice, it was just another fort.

The staff are so enthusiastic about the site, they make the trip across the inlet worthwhile. The trip across is great in the whale season as you get a free close up of them if your lucky.
