Churchill Manitoba: Polar Bears

"The experience of nature and knowledge was the best of all! This trip has far exceeded any expectations I may have had".

Join us in November 2016
 

Experience an extraordinary Canadian event! World travelers come to Churchill in the fall to witness polar bears waiting for the ice to form on Hudson Bay. At freeze up, polar bears return to the arctic ice to resume seal hunting and break many months of fasting. We will view the earth’s largest land carnivore from the safety of a Tundra Buggy®. The tour is enriched by sightings of other wildlife, migrating and resident birds, historic Cape Merry, the Eskimo Museum and possibly spectacular northern lights.

Highlights of this trip:

  • A full day on our private Tundra Buggy®. You will be delighted with the opportunity to observe and learn about these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
  • Accommodations at the Churchill Northern Study Centre. The study centre is located on the traditional polar bear migration route to The Bay. Staying at the Centre provides us an opportunity to meet and learn from researchers.
  • Opportunities to explore and photograph the local area, history, culture, geology, plant and animal life.
