You will be dropped off at Sloop Cove by zodiac boat where you will meet your Parks Canada guides.
Once there, you will begin a 4 km hike along the shores of Hudson Bay to Prince of Wales Fort National Historic Site. Along the way you will get a chance to explore the tundra of the Western Churchill Peninsula, visit archaeological sites, get a close up look at the flora of the tundra, find fossils that are hundreds of millions of years old, encounter birds and other wildlife, and get a sense of the history of the people who came here before you.
The zodiac boat will pick you up and transport you back across the Churchill River ... and return you to the 21st century!
