In collaboration with Parks Canada and the creators of the award-winning RAW:almond pop-up restaurant, Frontiers North is excited to officially unveil RAW:churchill, a unique culinary and adventure experience in Churchill, Canada taking place March 3-11, 2017.
Guests embark from Churchill on an official Tundra Buggy® and travel across the frozen Churchill River to Prince of Wales Fort National Historic Site. Once there, protected from weather and wildlife by the fort's thick stone walls, diners will enjoy a world-class meal in a heated 'pop-up' restaurant that has been designed purposefully with a transparent roof to take advantage of the opportunity to view the northern lights. Post-dinner, guests will complete their adventure with more northern lights viewing from the warmth and comfort of the Tundra Buggy.
