Location of Adventure
Manitoba, Canada
Group Size Limit
Approximately 16 Travelers
A very important feature of our polar bear expeditions is the limited group size. Nature is always best experienced in smaller groups and it is particularly important on this expedition so that our guests have plenty of room on board the tundra vehicles.
Our Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
R/T flight from Winnipeg to Churchill, accommodations, all meals, cold-weather gear including a parka and boots during your trip, services of NHA's professional Expedition Leaders and assistants, some gratuities, all activities/entrance fees, evening wildlife and cultural presentations, all taxes and service charges.
Not Included
Travel to and from Winnipeg, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, travel insurance, items of a personal nature (telephone calls, laundry, etc.).
Physical Requirements
A polar bear expedition with Natural Habitat Adventures requires very little walking. Travelers must be able to walk up/down stairs. Our Polar Rover vehicles, designed to travel over the tundra for polar bear observation, can sometimes offer a bumpy ride. Travelers must be prepared for below-freezing temperatures and slippery surfaces.
Important Information About This Trip
This flagship polar bear expedition has been our most popular adventure for over 20 years. Its longstanding success is due to the extraordinary polar bear viewing opportunities afforded our guests as well as the broad introduction to life in the North over the course of a six- or seven-day adventure. Two Polar Rover day trips and a night trip are complemented by time spent exploring this subarctic outpost, all in the company of our professional and experienced Expedition Leaders. Regarding polar bears in general: Polar bears are typically in the Churchill area all year round. The highest concentration occurs in Oct. and Nov. Sometimes the best viewing is in the beginning of the season, sometimes the middle and sometimes the end - we never know for sure. The bears are waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze, and when it does, many of them depart. Historically, this has been in early December, but an unusually early cold spell may occur, hastening their departure. Check out more details on the ebbs and flows of the Churchill polar bear viewing season.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
In case of flight or weather delays, we recommend that you arrive a day early and either participate in our Extra Day in Winnipeg program or stay on your own. Our small group tour begins with a 7 pm welcome dinner on Day 1. You are free to depart at any time on the final day.
