Churchill - Canada, Manitoba Highlights:
Fort Prince of Wales, Eskimo Museum, whale watching
Churchill is the most northern seaport in Canada and is located in northeastern Manitoba on the west coast of Hudson Bay. Reached only by rail, air, and sea, it was named after John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, who was governor of the Hudson's Bay Company from 1685 to 1691. Places of interest include the stone Fort Prince of Wales dating from 1731 which replaced the original wooden fort burned in 1689. It has been partly restored as a national historic site. The Eskimo Museum in the town contains one of Canada's finest collections of Eskimo art.

During the summer months a truly spectacular sight can be beheld in Churchill. On the west coast of Hudson Bay thousands of beluga whales, having just given birth, gather together to feed in the brackish waters in front of the town.
