Polar Bear Expeditions with Natural Habitat Adventures

Exclusive 20% Savings for Canadian Residents on the world’s most coveted small-group polar bear expeditions.

Book by Jul 31, 2020

See the King of the Arctic in the Polar Bear Capital of the World! Natural Habitat Adventures' small-group adventures to Churchill, Manitoba get you closer to more polar bears, in greater comfort and safety, than anywhere else on Earth. Each fall, the world's largest concentration of polar bears convenes on the western edge of Hudson Bay, waiting for the ice to form and their winter seal-hunting season to begin.

 

Guided by expert naturalist Expedition Leaders, you will view the bears from custom-built Polar Rovers. Or for the ultimate immersion in the kingdom of the polar bear, stay at their private Tundra Lodge, situated directly in the bears' realm, with access to viewing around the clock.

When you're standing on the outdoor platform of our Polar Rover, the chill Arctic air feels invigorating. But not as much as the sight of the huge polar bear ambling toward us. Sometimes they are silhouetted against the horizon, slowly moving shadows on the vast expanse of tundra. Other times, one may wander up directly below. Safely elevated, you’re nonetheless just feet away as you look down on his shaggy, cream-colored bulk. Noticing us, he stops, sniffs and turns his face our way, curious. We grin, filled with delight. The big bear rises on his haunches to peer at us more deliberately. We watch in wonder. Minutes go by, perhaps an hour, who knows? Out here among the bears, time stands still. It's nearly impossible to describe that feeling, but your photos will capture one of nature's most wondrous wildlife encounters!

This Arctic expedition is our most thorough encounter with the world of the polar bear and the Canadian Northland. Traverse the tundra in spacious heated Polar Rovers to search for bears, and watch them roam, play and interact—sometimes entertaining us at close range as we watch through large picture windows, or in the open from the outdoor viewing platform. But this epic adventure doesn't end there: we also helicopter in to the polar bears' denning area, experience the boreal forest on an authentic dog sled ride, explore the frontier town of Churchill, and enjoy cultural activities with local residents. When darkness descends, keep your fingers crossed for a view of the northern lights—the mystical display is as vivid here as any place on Earth. "Ultimate Churchill" is the ultimate North!

This is simply the most extraordinary polar bear experience available! Stay at the Tundra Lodge, set seasonally on the tundra near the edge of Hudson Bay, with round-the-clock proximity to polar bears. For wildlife photographers, no place offers a better spot for coveted close-up shots. As dusk descends, remain in the domain of the polar bear while the sunset lingers on the landscape. Safe inside the warm confines of the lodge, enjoy surprising comfort in these austere environs. This custom "train" of connected lounge car, dining car and sleeping compartments is built on wheels, allowing us to station it for optimal polar bear viewing each fall. Daily Polar Rover excursions take us farther afield in search of bears and other northern wildlife. There’s no more thorough immersion in the King of the Arctic's realm!
