Location of Adventure
Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
Group Size Limit
Approximately 16 Travelers
A very important feature of this polar bear expedition is the limited group size. Nature is always best experienced in smaller groups and it is particularly important on this expedition so our guests have plenty of room on board the Polar Rovers.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
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, helicopter flight, dog sledding excursion, evening wildlife and cultural presentations, permits & park fees, all taxes and service charges.
Not Included
Travel to and from Winnipeg, some gratuities, alcoholic beverages, personal items, airport taxes, travel insurance.
Physical Requirements
Easy 
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. During our helicopter journey to an empty polar bear den, travelers must be able to walk for approximately 10 minutes across the snow to reach the denning site.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip is designed for guests who want the fullest experience of the North. We have included daytime Polar Rover trips to see polar bears, a nighttime excursion (with the possibility to view the Northern Lights), dog sledding and a helicopter flight. During our years of experience in Churchill we have forged intimate relationships with the local people, including native Inuit who will teach our guests about the culture, lifestyle and history of the Arctic. 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 trip begins with a   7:00 pm welcome dinner on Day 1. You are free to depart at any time on the final day.
