The Hudson Bay
Winnipeg-The Pas-Churchill Train
For a total change of scene, head off aboard the Hudson Bay for a 1,700 kilometre journey (over 1,000 miles!) in Northern Manitoba. Leaving Winnipeg, in the heart of the southern prairies, you travel to Churchill, a city in the vast subarctic region, on the shores of Hudson Bay.
The Hudson Bay also allows outdoor enthusiasts to get off the train anywhere they want, even where there is no scheduled stop! How? Simply by requesting a special stop!
The Hudson Bay is also the only overland transportation serving many communities en route. The train's exact route varies depending on its number:
