Classic Polar Bear Adventure- Land Tour

When you’re standing on the outdoor platform of the Polar Rover, the chill Arctic air feels invigorating, but not as much as the sight of the huge polar bear walking toward you.  Sometimes they are silhouetted against the horizon slowly moving shadows on the vast expanse of tundra.  Other times, one may wander up directly below you.  Safely elevated, you’re nonetheless just feet away as you look down on the bear.  Out here amongst the bears, time stands still.  It’s nearly impossible to describe the feeling, but your photos will capture one of nature’s most wondrous wildlife encounters!

Your Itinerary

    1Winnipeg, MB
    Our Churchill polar bear tour begins in Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba. Once a center of fur trade and a Canadian Pacific Railway boomtown, Winnipeg today is a cultural and commercial center on the eastern edge of Canada's vast prairies. Transfer to the Historic Fort Garry Hotel, grande dame of Winnipeg hospitality and one of the city's most prestigious landmarks. Meet your expedition leader at a welcome dinner this evening.

    2Winnipeg/Churchill
    Fly by chartered plane to Churchill this morning. This hospitable frontier town, originally a Hudson's Bay Company fur trading post, is our base for adventure. On the 6-day trip we head to the tundra this evening for our first glimpse of the bears, although we often see them from the bus as we leave the airport, even before boarding Polar Rover. The 7-day trip opens with an evening presentations on polar bears and the environment by our professional naturalist.

    3Polar Bear Viewing
    Custom built Polar Rovers are our mobile means for spending time among the bears. Thought they can accommodate up to 35 passengers, we take a minimum of 16, ensuring everyone has a window seat and plenty of space to move about. Our expedition leaders know the best places to observe polar bears, which congregate here each fall as they wait for Hudson Bay to freeze over signaling the start of winter seal hunting season. We may see mothers with cubs, young males play fighting, or a lone bear ambling over the silent tundra. Our expedition leader interprets all we observe, explaining the bears' behavior and how they thrive in such a harsh environment. In the evenings, we gather for dinner and presentations.

    5Exploring Churchill/Evening on the Tundra
    On the 7-day trip, tour historic Churchill today, then head out to the tundra for evening bear viewing and dinner aboard the Polar Rover. During the day we follow the coastal road on a drive to Cape Merry, often spying Arctic fox and Arctic hare. Look closely for them as their winter white coats offer excellent camouflage when the ground is covered in snow. If the skies are clear, our nighttime tundra excursion might reveal one of natures most exhilarating experiences- a chance to view the northern lights away from the glare of town. There is free time in Churchill or choose an optional helicopter excursion over the vast expanse of frozen tundra boarding our flight back to Winnipeg.

    6Churchill-Dog Sledding/Winnipeg
    Our return flight to Winnipeg is scheduled to depart mid to late afternoon, offering as much time as possible for exploring Churchill today. A highlight this morning is an authentic dog sled ride. We meet a local musher and his team, spending time with dogs before taking turns riding behind them on an exhilarating trot through boreal forest. If time permits, you may be able to pick up some locally made handicrafts or take and optional helicopter tour over the tundra before we depart. We'll have a farewell lunch together before flying back to Winnipeg where a final reception concludes our adventure together.

    7Winnipeg/Depart
    After breakfast, transfer to the airport for flights home.
