Take part in viewing another part of Churchill’s intricate history on this exclusive Sea North Tours excursion! The hike from Sloop Cove is situated a few kilometers from the Fort on the west side the river. What was once a safe harbour and winter haven for Hudson’s Bay Co. Sloop cove in the 18th century is now a tundra meadow nestled between rocks with iron mooring rings.
A real treasure is found here; the artistic scrawl of the HBC’s men is 18th – century graffiti decorating some of the earth’s oldest bedrock. The signatures etched in this isolated place give memory to a time of trails, perseverance and hope for future generations. These men were sailors, shipwrights, carpenters, captains, laborers and adventurers. Samuel Hearne, a famous northern explorer and HBC governor, left his mark here when he was just 22 years old.
Our guides accompanying you on the tour will be able to paint a picture of exactly what life was like for the men starting out here in the fur trade, it’s an interesting bit of history you won’t want to miss.
