York Factory & HBC Fur Trade Tour
Tuesday August 30 to Saturday Sept 3, 2016
When you book this trip, Canada's History Society receives a commission which goes to support our educational and outreach programs.
Roundtrip from Winnipeg this 5 day, 4 nights this guided tour combines a Northern Manitoba rail journey and visit to isolated York Factory. Fur trade routes are viewed from the train’s windows (1 night on the train each way) between Winnipeg and Gillam, Manitoba and a 2-night stay in Gillam. The highlight will be the boat day trip from Gillam on the Nelson & Hayes Rivers reliving historic York boat routes — without all the paddling and pain! View the (failed) Port Nelson site with its long abandoned bridge and then immerse yourself in Hudson Bay Company heritage at York Factory’s warehouse, built in 1831, where the historic fur trade stays frozen in time and on display throughout the building and area. Watch for beluga whales in Hudson Bay and other wildlife when returning to Gillam to again overnight and return to Winnipeg by train. Package includes sleeping car space on the train, Gillam hotel stay, tour guide, local presenters, added heritage attractions, Thompson, MB visit, all meals, tour info kit and more.
