Polar Bear Photography Expeditions

Our superlative polar bear photography tours are the result of years of experience running polar bear expeditions in the 'Great White North.' Our adventures operate out of Churchill, Manitoba during peak polar bear migration season each fall, as the bears mass along Hudson Bay waiting for winter’s freeze. Accompanied by the finest naturalist-photographer Expedition Leaders, our guests can exclusively witness and photograph young males sparring, mothers protecting their cubs, and, at times, giant males that lift their paws onto the side of our specially designed, newly built Polar Rovers. Join us on this exciting adventure to observe, photograph and learn about the King of the Arctic!

Classic Polar Bear Photo Adventure

You won’t find another Churchill-based polar bear tour with this much time among and proximity to the King of the Arctic, coupled with our intensive focus on helping you gain outstanding photos. On our Classic Polar Bear Photo Adventure, we start from our base in Churchill as we head out for three full days on the tundra. Here on the shores of Hudson Bay polar bears congregate each fall, awaiting freeze-up and the start of their winter hunting season. Specially designed Polar Rovers take us into the heart of their wild habitat, with plenty of space for equipment and room to maneuver in order to get terrific shots. On-site guidance from our expert photographer-guide is complemented by evening lectures on how best to capture the wonder of Arctic wildlife through the camera's lens—most notably polar bears, but also arctic fox, arctic hare and more!

Tundra Lodge Photography Expedition

A pilgrimage to the polar bears of Churchill is a must for any wildlife photographer, whether professional or avid amateur. This custom expedition offers an unparalleled opportunity to capture images of polar bears and other Arctic wildlife, often at very close range. We stay directly on the tundra in our self-contained “hotel,” the Great White Bear Tundra Lodge. Each season the mobile lodge is situated where bear activity is common, and bears are often seen near the lodge all day long! With our exclusive use of this facility, there's plenty of room to store gear and move about freely as we capture astounding images of the King of the Arctic. An on-site Polar Rover provides daily excursions from the lodge, while outdoor decks provide a platform to photograph bears as they wander and play nearby. If we're lucky enough to see the Northern Lights, the deck is an excellent place to capture shots of this mesmerizing phenomenon. Our most accomplished photographer-naturalists guide this extraordinary adventure, drawing on their extensive experience in the region to help you get those once-in-a-lifetime shots.
