Overview

To visit Churchill is to see not only the magnificent King of the Arctic, Manitoba’s polar bears, but also to experience the history and culture of the region. This adventure puts you up close and personal with the world’s largest land predator in its element.

Led by knowledgeable regional guides, this program also includes a tour of the town and surrounding area, entrance to the Eskimo Museum and Parks Canada facility, and a private slide presentation. Dog sledding or a cultural-arts program is included.

Photographers will delight in the two days spent viewing the polar bears up close from the amazing Tundra Buggy platform. A variety of departures are available; please call us for specific availability.

Today will be spent in a Tundra Buggy with an expert local guide, viewing polar bears and other Arctic wildlife.

The best way to experience an intimate encounter with a wild polar bear is on an authentic Tundra Buggy. All of our vehicles are furnished with dual-pane frost-free windows and contain propane heating systems that closely resemble fireplaces (featuring real flame behind glass). You will enjoy picnic-style lunches and refreshment while bear watching.

The day concludes with an evening slide show conducted by seasoned residents of the area. Relax and soak up years of northern experience, enchanting stories, and magnificent photography.

Overnight: Churchill Hotel

In the morning, you will learn about the history of Canadian dogsledding form a local resident and sledding expert. This is followed by an exhilarating ride with a husky team on a custom-made sled (or cart, weather permitting). Join the mushers for hot chocolate and fresh bannock after your ride and hear stories of sledding adventures across the continent.

During the afternoon you will step back in time to view detailed and exciting wildlife dioramas and fur trade exhibits at the Parks Canada Interpretive Centre. View a series of videos on the history, culture, and wildlife of the area.

Overnight: Churchill Hotel

The penultimate day of the trip features another excursion via Tundra Buggy, including a picnic-style lunch and final opportunities for bear watching.
