Travel to CHURCHILL
HOW TO GET TO CHURCHILL
There are no roads connecting Churchill to the rest of Manitoba which means the only ways to reach our SubArctic town are by train or by plane.
The train departs from Winnipeg three times a week on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays arriving approximately 48 hours later on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The same train departs Churchill at 7:30pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
If you have the means, we strongly suggest adding a fun little side trip by driving to Thompson and stopping off at Steep Rock, Little Limestone Lake and Pisew Falls before jumping on the train in Thompson and taking the overnighter to Churchill. Trains depart from Thompson at 5pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
