To see a Fort of this age and this well preserved in Canada is amazing! There is a beautiful carpet of rare wild flowers along the path that leads to the Fort. Standing on top of the Fort we were lucky enough to see a Polar Bear mother and cub on the shoreline. The tour groups are very small going... More

We stopped by on a cold winter day, but were greeted warmly by the Rangers. Since there could be bears in the area one followed us from a distance with a high powered rifle. No worries, we were fine. Nice views and great history provided

This Manitoba/Churchill historic Fort is quite interesting to hear about the history of the site. The Fort isnt that big. But nice to walk around. Admire the tundra and nature there.

Went to the Prince of Wales Fort during a day trip. Fort is not very big, but has a lot of history behind it. If you are lucky, you may also end up seeing a polar bear on the way.

I took the tour from the cape through the natural area to the fort. The walk is quite interesting because you see the names and the dates of the people that landed here a long time ago. Life was very challenging for them. I particularly enjoyed the scenery out there. It was beautiful. The fort itself is very uninspiring, although... More

Driving to the Fort we spotted a Snowy owl sitting on the Manitoba Millennium monument. Te owl accommodated everyone that wanted to take a photo. Walking around the area I spotted a red fox which was really exciting. A few minutes later I spotted a few beluga whales less than 10 m from the shore. Unlike most whales these guys... More

Cape Merry is across from the Prince of Wales Dirty, on the Churchill side of the river. The wind comes whistling off the Hudson Bay, so wrap up if you go there during the winter months! The Parks Canada staff are on site every so often, but there's washrooms and there's some interesting info on site. Watch your footing if... More

Was a combo tour that included the visit to the Fort. It was a guided tour and we were taken there by boat with an on-site guide. Interesting and the guide was well informed. It is a bit of a walk from the shore to the fort but the pace was easy and relaxing.

We took a great guided tour of the fort which we enjoyed very much. I've always wanted to visit Fort Prince of Wales, and I wasn't disappointed. We were there in the evening, and viewed a wonderful sunset over the fort. Keep in mind that this fort isn't completely restored like Lower Fort Garry in Winnipeg or Old Fort William... More
