Optional add-ons

Tundra Buggy summer day tours, July and August
A Tundra Buggy summer day tour is one of the best ways to experience the magnificent ecosystems surrounding Churchill. With the most special permits to access the trail network in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area, explore the tundra while your driver provides interpretation about the colourful flora, amazing fauna and incredible history of this unique sub-arctic environment. Experience the summer scenery and scan the landscape for arctic fox, arctic hare, caribou and the first polar bears to return from their annual hunt on the sea ice. Churchill is also an incredible destination for bird lovers, with over 200 different species migrating through the area each summer. Please note that Tundra Buggy day tours take place on a 40-passenger Tundra Buggy and during peak seasons have a tendency to sell to capacity. We highly recommend booking your Tundra Buggy day tour(s) as early as possible.

Tours begin at Fifty Eight North – Home of the Tundra Buggy at 124 Kelsey Boulevard. Guests will be transferred to the Tundra Buggy launch area where we will board our Tundra Buggies and journey into the Churchill Wildlife Management Area for a 6-hour tour. Our time on the tundra will be spent exploring the sub-arctic landscape and searching for wildlife. At the end of the tour guests will be transferred back to Fifty Eight North. Snacks and refreshments will be available on the Tundra Buggy. Please note, no disposable plastic water bottles are available on board, but water is provided for you to fill a reusable water bottle. Tundra Buggy tours are planned to co-ordinate with the whale watching tours, therefore the operating times change depending on the date.
