Full day Churchill polar bear tour

Your adventure begins with a private charter flight to from Winnipeg to Churchill. The 2.5 hour flight takes you from the city lights, over prairie fields, boreal forests and scantily-treed taiga to the flat tundra and the town of Churchill.

On arrival in Churchill you are transferred directly to the Tundra Buggy Dock and begin your journey exploring the Churchill Wildlife Management Area (CWMA) with Dr. Petersen, Director of Conservation and Research at Assiniboine Park Zoo. He will share insights on the importance of polar bear research and conservation and how it relates to climate change.

You will spend the day exploring the trail network in the CWMA, on the lookout for polar bears wandering free in their natural habitat, along with other subarctic wildlife such as arctic fox, arctic hare, snowy owls and ptarmigan. Late afternoon the Tundra Buggy driver heads back the the docking station.

After a full day of wildlife viewing, you will disembark the Tundra Buggy, transfer to the airport for your return flight to  Winnipeg, taking with you memories of this amazing northern adventure.

Partial proceeds from this tour will go toward Assiniboine Park Conservancy in support of its polar bear research and conservation efforts.
