Polar Bears & the Wildlife of Churchill, Canada

October 17 - 23, 2014 (7 days)

Double occupancy: $5,995 per person
Single supplement: $945


 

This is your chance to come face-to-face with a polar bear, widely considered one of the most intriguing and awe-inspiring of all animals. Every fall, the tundra surrounding Churchill, on the west coast of Canada's Hudson Bay, becomes a stopover for more than one thousand bears on their annual migration. From the safety of our tundra vehicles we can view these majestic creatures within close range. While the polar bear is typically a solitary creature, this time of year they can be found in large numbers. You may encounter young bears mock fighting, or an adult male approaching within feet of us, even possibly lifting his massive paws on the side of the vehicle to peer in! Be among the very few to have viewed the exceptional sight of nighttime on the tundra - view the luminescent eyes of Arctic fox and the snowy owl, see the polar bears with special-effects lighting, and on clear nights, the northern lights may appear and brighten the entire sky. Please join us for this special opportunity.
