The World’s Most Coveted Small-Group Polar Bear Expedition
"This trip surpassed our expectations based on the management skills of Nat Hab. The people, the guides, the details, the concern for safety and comfort, the amenities -- all were excellent. Our guide Brad's experience and good nature made the trip very enjoyable. He was extremely knowledgeable, and his ability to figure out how to relate to each traveler was an important asset."
"This trip so exceeded my expectations. I would have thought I had died and gone to heaven if I had seen a bear or two per day. Our experience was way, WAY better in every way. If I could have given our guide Melissa a 25 rating instead of a 10 I would have. She went out of her way to organize things to give us the best adventure possible. She also knows everything about everything!"
"What I enjoyed most was the number of sightings of the bears, the coordination between drivers to find out where they were, and our guide Eric's insights on the environment, bears and even photography tips. I can't imagine a better guide. I learned so much about the polar bear's environment and behaviors. He was able to answer the group's questions, added humor, even let me borrow his camera lens to capture better photos."
"Our particular group was very lucky in that we got to see everything that the trip had to offer, so this trip exceeded those expectations. Also, the evening activities which enabled us to learn history of the area and to meet local people were very enjoyable."
“This was a terrific experience! Our Expedition Leader was excellent: extremely knowledgeable, on top of every situation and gave us a fantastic overall northern experience. At every step of the way the Nat Hab staff was absolutely tops!”
"I'm 76 and have been to 31 countries and around the world by myself. I usually travel alone, but - without exception - this was the best trip of my life!"
"The trip was perfect in every way. I can't stop raving about it! I thought this would be a 'once in a lifetime' experience, but I cannot wait to do it again! Congratulations to NHA on an outstanding organization."
"This was the best trip I've ever taken, and I take at least one every year. The planning, organization and staffing were all outstanding! The arrangements in Winnipeg - especially the extra day program - were every bit as excellent as the main program, i.e. the Polar Bears. I was impressed by how first class everything was. I can't wait until my next trip with NHA!"

"I would definitely recommend NHA to my friends. The trip was incredibly well organized and I appreciated the fact that I wasn't crammed into a tundra buggy like some of the other groups we saw. 5 stars to NHA!!"
“From the time I began to make arrangements to the final van taking me to the airport at the conclusion of the trip, everything was FIRST CLASS! I knew I had made a good choice in selecting Natural Habitat!” Our Expedition Leader went out of his way to be sure that everyone in our group was enjoying the trip. On two occasions he caught up with us to take us to see the Northern Lights after the time that he should have been finished for the day (once at 2:30 am). This was such a wonderful trip. You can be sure that I will tell anyone who will listen about this exciting adventure. A well thought out, well organized trip like this doesn't just happen. Thanks to all who have put this together and to all who implemented it.”
