A very important feature of this polar bear adventure is the limited group size. Nature and wildlife are always best experienced in smaller groups, and it is particularly important on this trip so that our guests have plenty of room on board our Polar Rover vehicles during tundra wildlife drives. We limit our group to approximately 29 travelers, and on tundra wildlife drives aboard the Polar Rovers, we generally accommodate 16 guests, leaving plenty of room for you to spread out, store your gear, and move about the Rover to get the best perspectives on the polar bears.

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
Our Tundra Lodge polar bear photo tour is designed specifically for avid photographers who want to spend their days shooting. Our Expedition Leaders will impart their expertise in both nature interpretation and photography techniques, helping guests capture outstanding images of the Arctic environment and its resident wildlife, with a focus, of course, on polar bears.
Polar bears are typically found in the Churchill area year-round. The highest concentration occurs in October and November as the bears mass in anticipation for the freeze-up of Hudson Bay. Sometimes the best bear viewing is at the beginning of the season, sometimes in the middle, and sometimes at the end—we never know for sure. Once Hudson Bay freezes, many of the bears depart and head far out onto the ice. Historically this happens in early December, but an unusually early cold spell can occur, hastening their departure.
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.
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.
