Churchill is a small town (around 1,000) located on the west shore of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba.

It is best known for its outdoor activities, and especially for wildlife viewing. Situated at the meeting point of three major ecosystems (marine, boreal forest and tundra), Churchill attracts birders, whale watchers and those who fish during the summer, while winter attracts viewers of the Northern Lights.

The autumn (Oct-Nov) provides its most popular wildlife attraction, as thousands of polar bears migrate from the interior to the shore.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
