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 adventure to ensure that all guests have plenty of room on board the Polar Rovers.

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 uneven snow to reach the denning site.
Important Information About This Trip
Polar bears are typically in the Churchill area all year-round. The highest concentration occurs in October and November. Sometimes the best bear viewing happens at the beginning of the season, sometimes the middle and sometimes at the end—we never know for sure. Each fall, the bears congregate as they wait for Hudson Bay to freeze, and when it does, many of them depart. Historically, this happens in early December, but an unusually early cold spell may 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.
