Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
The Tundra Lodge, located on the subarctic tundra outside the small Canadian frontier town of Churchill, Manitoba, is a unique, custom-built rolling hotel placed in an area of high polar bear density at the beginning of each polar bear season, which runs from October through November. The lodge has 32 rooms. Each room is a single compartment similar to sleeping quarters on a train, with either an upper or lower berth. With six shared toilets and four showers, as well as a lounge area for viewing bears and a dining car with sliding windows for viewing and photography, the Tundra Lodge offers an immersive and personalized Arctic wilderness experience without sacrificing comfort. Raised outdoor viewing platforms also facilitate excellent polar bear viewing and photography opportunities, as well as aurora watching when the northern lights are visible. There's no opportunity anywhere else on the planet that affords the chance to be in prime polar bear habitat around the clock!
