Group Size
Limited to 16 Travelers
A very important feature of our Arctic family expedition is the limited group size. Nature and wildlife are always best experienced in intimate settings, and our small group is a particularly important feature of this adventure, ensuring plenty of room on board the tundra vehicles with a window seat for each guest.

Physical Requirements
Easy
A Churchill wildlife 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 the purpose of polar bear observation, can sometimes offer a bumpy ride. Travelers must be prepared for temperatures that may be well below freezing, and slippery surfaces.
Important Information About This Trip
Searching for polar bears is a special component of this trip. The highest concentration occurs in October and November as the bears gather to await freeze-up on Hudson Bay and the beginning of their winter hunting season. However, since weather always dictates their movements, and patterns are becoming somewhat less reliable with climate change, we can never predict exactly where the polar bears will be at any given time. Sometimes the best bear viewing happens at the beginning of the season, sometimes it occurs in the middle, and sometimes it's at the end—we never know for sure. Once Hudson Bay freezes, many of the bears depart for the pack ice. Historically, this has happened in early December, but an unusually early cold spell can sometimes occur, hastening their departure.

Meals
Please understand that the meals in Churchill are specially planned and prepared for well in advance. With ample notice, dietary requirements due to serious medical conditions or strict personal restrictions can be met, but must be adhered to while on the adventure. If you have a very restricted diet, we recommend bringing some of your preferred snacks along with the appreciation that certain foods are limited in this part of the world.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
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. Please schedule your flights to arrive by 5 pm in order to attend a 7 pm orientation dinner on Day 1 of your program. You are free to depart at any time on the final day.
