Churchill Polar Bear Adventure (October & November)

6 Day Itinerary in Winnipeg & Churchill


Encounter one of the world's wonderful natural phenomena, as the annual polar bear "migration" occurs along the Hudson Bay coast. Churchill is referred to as "The Polar Bear Capital of the World", but the bears are not the only attraction. Explore the arctic tundra along the Hudson Bay coast and venture into the treeline of the vast boreal forest of the Canadian Shield. Watch for other wildlife including caribou, moose, arctic fox, wolf, arctic hare and lemmings, as well as snowy owl, gyrfalcon and other arctic birds.  

Tours are led by professional naturalists with extensive experience with both the natural and cultural heritage of the Churchill region. Since 1987, our firm has conducted polar bear tours to Churchill.
