When to go

There are two seasons in the Arctic, but summer (not winter), falling between the spring and autumn equinoxes, when daylight virtually round the clock, is the best for visiting.

Seasons

  • Summer

    Apr to Sep: Truly the land of the midnight sun – the further north, the longer the light
  • Winter

    Oct to Apr: The sun disappears for months at a time, and the icy cold returns

Wildlife events

  • May to Sep: Arrival of the Arctic summer
  • Jul: Beluga whales in estuaries around Churchill
  • Sep to Feb: Northern Lights visible
  • Oct to Nov: Polar bears wait for pack ice to form
