This was my third Learning Vacation at the CNSC (aurora, polar bears, beluga whales). The accommodation, meals, personnel and program were excellent as previously.

I place you must visit. Great staff, great instructors, great food. I know this part of the world isn't for everyone, but if you ever wanted to visit the subarctic and see what it had to offer this is the best value out there.

We were very fortunate to spend 6 nights at the CNSC for a Northern Lights learning vacation last month. The far northern location of Churchill, with access only possible by plane or train, with frequent delays in travel due to inclement weather, ensures that visitors...More

The Churchill Northern studies centre is a very educational place. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The Northern lights are amazing and they have a really nice gift shop there. We'll worth a visit at anytime of year in Churchill.

We experienced the aurora dome, talked with scientists and students currently at the center, a tour given by the director and had many questions answered. They were welcoming and fascinating.

Cloud coverage is hardly ever a problem in Churchill. We get some fog when the temperatures on the Bay and on the land are different, but that's not an issue in February. Generally there has been great success in viewing the... More
