We had a short tour by the rangers as the wind was starting to get strong off the Hudson. Very informative, but it would have been nice to have an indoor facility as well to relay more of the history in a warmer area.

It gives a feeling of how isolated it would have been to have been there in the 1700 s There aren't many facilities or information on the ground

Very good can't believe people lived there it was so cold on our visit. Rhonda the Park Ranger was an excellent speaker and made the visit very interesting. had to keep your eyes open for Polar Bears as they visited the area. Told us the last group had to move quickly when a bear started to approach them.

I would rate this a "don't miss" site. We were particularly lucky to get a Parks Canada guide who gave us the best talk I've ever heard. She was a history buff and gave us a unique view of the fort's history, particularly the role of women. We had an armed guard who served as bear lookout. He rather overplayed... More

Take the time for a guided tour of this historical landmark. Dress warm and be prepared for any type of weather change. You will be walking on uneven grounds and the guides carry weapons in case a polar bear decides he wants to visit the Fort too!!

The guide was very good and enthused about the history of the area which made the tour better than many tours like this I have gone on. We got to the fort by Sea North Tours Fort/Whale Tour. Also, check with your motel host/hostess and they may know whether or not the Canadian Parks service is having archaelogical digs that... More

I'm not much of a history buff so didn't like that part. The mosquitos were the worst I've ever experienced in my life, and I'm from Minnesota. So, if you visit Churchill in July, buy the "head nets" and bring repellent that has a lot of deet. We did see a polar bear napping in a pond....view from the fort.... More

Worth the trip across the Churchill River! We did the tour as part of the Beluga Whale Zodiac tour. The park guides were great, the information presented in a very interesting way. Just amazing to see how much things have remained the same in the area and to learn the historical significance. We were lucky enough to spot a polar... More
