Churchill is 1,400 kilometres (870 miles) northeast of Winnipeg, accessible only by plane or VIA Rail train. Wapusk’s main entry point, Churchill, is the site of Parks Canada’s Visitor Centre. Although it’s possible to take a short helicopter tour over the park from Churchill, most visits are multi-day in the company of licensed operators.

Churchill is the “gateway” community to Wapusk National Park.

Travel to the park from either Churchill or Gillam can be arranged with local licensed commercial operators. Depending on the season, tour operators can take you to and from the park by boat, snowmobile, aircraft or dog team as there are no roads to the park. Weather conditions, ice, tides and seasonal conditions may affect your access plans.

Parks Canada recommends that you use the services of a licensed commercial operator when travelling to Wapusk National Park in order to address the various safety risks.

Free admission. Other fees still apply.
