Polar Bears of Churchill
Each year in the fall, along the west shore of Canada’s Hudson Bay, magnificent Polar bears gather near Churchill, Manitoba waiting for the bay to freeze over so that they can begin their annual hunt for seals, their choice prey. Not accessible by road, the small northern seaport of Churchill is often referred to as the “polar bear capital of the world”
Churchill is a small, northern community with a lot of character; you won’t find one of the big-chain hotels here that you might find in a larger centre. You will, however, find warm hospitality in basic but clean, comfortable hotels with all the amenities. Staying in town will allow you to walk to and from the different venues, spend some time on your own, and perhaps meet some of the locals. Because Churchill is not accessible by road all our packages start and end with an overnight in Winnipeg. Most people choose to fly between Winnipeg and Churchill, the cost is included, but we do offer a package that uses VIA Rail in one direction on selected departures, please ask.

Adventurer Polar Bear Tours
These polar bear tours are designed for those who wish to visit Churchill in hope of seeing a polar bear, but are not necessarily interested in taking part in community-based activities. The Adventurer tours are unescorted but very knowledgeable driver guides provide excellent interpretation while on the Tundra Buggy. For a more comprehensive tour, please ask about our Polar Bear Enthusiast Experiences.

The Tundra Buggy
Our packages allow you to view polar bears from the remarkable Tundra Buggies - the most comfortable and safe way to experience polar bears in their natural environment. On days that have a Tundra Buggy Adventure scheduled, you will be transferred from town to the Tundra Buggy Launch to board a Buggy and begin your search for wildlife. The Buggy meanders over a system of established trails, stopping at leisure to enjoy the scenery, search for wildlife, and take photos. When daylight begins to fade, you head back to the Launch to be transferred back to town and your hotel.

Alaska - The Great Land
Alaska conjures images of massive sweeping glaciers, salmon leaping into the mouths of waiting bears, endless white-capped mountains, whales breaching from frigid seas and the lure of gold that lives with the land. There’s nowhere quite like it….
