Itinerary

For over thirty years we have been offering tours to head north and watch the polar bears. Now, we want to introduce a new series of tours; our "Bear Country Adventures", offering those short on time or looking for an economical alternative to our conventional tours, a chance to head north and visit our wonderful and world famous Polar Bear population.

Day 1:
Your tour begins upon departure this afternoon on your northbound flight to Churchill. Located on the shores of Hudson Bay, this iconic town is known as the Polar Bear Capital of the World. Upon arrival in Churchill you will be transferred to your accommodation. Experience local cuisine at one of the town's restaurants this evening. We recommend arrival time in Winnipeg before 13:00pm for travellers flying into Winnipeg this day.

Day 2:
A polar safari! Every autumn, these extraordinary animals prowl along the coast of the Hudson Bay, anxiously waiting for the sea ice to form. Once the bay freezes over, the bears move out onto the ice and spend the winter hunting seals. From the security of the giant Tundra Vehicle, you will venture onto the vast tundra on a quest for the sightings of these magnificent creatures in their natural environment. Return to the hotel at dusk, with dinner at leisure. Tonight you will enjoy a presentation with your group on "The Seasons of Churchill" hosted by a local photographer. (B, L)

Day 3:
Take an optional dog-sledding tour, helicopter tour of the area or Town and Area tour today. Transfer to the airport for an early evening flight to Winnipeg. For those short of time, visit the unique gift shops or take last minute photos this morning, prior to transferring to the Churchill airport for your evening flight. You will arrive in Winnipeg around 20:30 pm, please ask us about booking accommodation options in this vibrant prairie city. If you wish to fly out of Churchill this morning, please contact us for details and availability - a change fee applies for any air deviations. (B)

The order of tours may be re-arranged for scheduling purposes.

Why not spend another couple of nights before or after your polar bear tour in Winnipeg, and learn more of the culture, history and art of the north at the city's fabulous museum and art gallery? Contact your travel specialist for more information.
