GREAT TRIP - GREAT EXPERIENCE We enjoyed the couple of days in Winnipeg, even though was even colder than usual. Nice city and wonderful museums included in the Road Scholar. I'd recommend arriving a day or two early for the trip to have little extra time in Winnipeg, AND to avoid real possibility of weather travel delays in (or out, as we experienced at the end of the trip). The stay at Churchill was fun, educational, and rewarding. Enjoyed some time in Churchill itself, and loved staying at the Research Center. The building is rather new and very modern. The "dorm" rooms can accommodate 4 of same-sex, but when we went many of the rooms were vacant so they only put 2 to a room, and in fact placed my wife and me (only married couple) in same room. Shower/bath across the hall, modern and clean. Interesting place to reside, right in the main research building. Food was excellent, "home cooked" in the center's "dining hall". People at the center & the guides are gracious, friendly, and informative. Activities were well planned and organized. The rides on the snow mobile and and dog sled were a bit "token", pretty short, but given -40f to -20f temperatures was fine and enjoyable. A bit of hiking and experiencing the tundra forest and shore of the Hudson Day. Weather was generally sunny during the 8 hrs of sunlight in February, and long nights were clear,. We experienced NORTHERN LIGHTS all 5 nights we were there. They are gently beautiful and subtly moving to experience. Held you in a kind of awe. (By the way you learn Northern Lights are almost exclusively green tones. They explain how cameras do capture a broader/brighter color range, which is what we are all used to seeing in photos.) Still they are marvelous to experience - many of us stood for the 2-3 hours they showed, either outside or in the nice super-clear heated dome on top of the center. Be prepared for VERY cold weather but its part of making for a great experience. RENT the coat/gloves/boots there.
