Traveling to Churchill

GETTING TO THE 58th PARALLEL 

There are no roads into Churchill and although the town is accessible by air (and hopefully by rail in 2018) it is sometimes difficult making travel arrangements. Please remember that travel in northern Canada is unpredictable; please confirm flight time seven days prior to departure. Purchase travel insurance for remote area.
