City withthe Polar Bear Capital
Churchill, the capital of Manitoba, is a remote town situated on the shore of Hudson Bay. You can get to watch and even walk through polar bears annually as they follow its route to spend their winter on 'Hudson's Bay tundra.
In 1979, an aircraft (little miss piggy as it is popularly called) crashed and didn't complete its journey to Winnipeg, the wrecks of the plane are still intact and are also a popular tourist attraction site. Endeavor to pay a visit and to York Factory National Historic Site when next you’re in Churchill.
Getting a feel of the waters is one of the most amazing things about having a vacation in Manitoba. You can hike a 14-mile loop to 'Manitoba's highest and largest waterfall (Kwasitchewan falls) from Pisew falls, which is 'Manitoba's 2nd highest waterfall. If you are too scared to hike, then worry not. There are a suspension bridge and platform from which you could view the waters carefully. And guess what? You can set a camp at the base when you get tired or need to take a break as you enjoy and feel the splashing waters on your skin.
