(We suggest having thin gloves under mitts so you can remove your hands to manipulate a camera without exposing your skin). Items are available for purchase in hotel gift shop.

·      Extra batteries! The cold will drain your battery life at a rate you might not expect. Keep on top of your charging in the community of Churchill!
