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

All of our rooms have 2 bunk beds, which means there may be up to 4 people in a room. Visitors to the CNSC can request a bottom bunk, or a room for just 2 people, and we will try our best to fulfill this request, but we... More
