Specialist, Enthusiast and Adventurer levels of touring. You may already have noticed that some of our Churchill polar bear programs are categorized as Specialist, Enthusiast or Adventurer. But what do the categories mean? Well, here’s the low down.

– Specialist and Enthusiast level tours offer smaller group sizes and include a photography or interpretive guide. Adventurer level tours have the largest group size, so the lowest prices.
– If you are looking for the most economical tour, then an Adventurer level tour is for you.
– If you have a bit bigger budget and want a smaller group with an interpretive guide, then an Enthusiast level tour would be the best choice.
– The Specialist tours require the biggest budget and focuses (pardon the pun) on specific interests such as photography, with an expert guide along.

Confused as to what level of tour best suits your needs? Just ask us and we’ll go through the various tour options and dates to find the best fit.
