Fort Churchill

Historic Site in Churchill

Amid the undulating rocks, late-season ice and scraggy, stunted trees looms a Cold War relic. Spotted long before you complete the 20km drive east from the airport, Fort Churchill was Canada's Cape Kennedy. Starting in 1954, over 3500 small rockets were launched from here on military and scientific missions.

Pondering the abandoned and crumbling remains of the complex is both fascinating and eerie.
