Head out on an arctic adventure

WINNIPEG ROUND TRIP

The Ultimate Polar Bear Adventure

Polar Bear Viewing

CHURCHILL | WINNIPEG

Prepare to be wowed! You will spend two full days on the tundra, tracking along the coastline in our touring-permit zone of the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.

Each day you’ll explore the amazing Hudson Bay coastline observing the majestic Polar Bear up close and personal. Along the way, look for Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare, Camouflaged Ptarmigan and other wildlife. You’ll alsohave a Dog Mushing experience and a Cultural and Heritage Tour of historic Churchill, Manitoba. After your day’s adventures, you’ll return home to the cozy wood-fire heated log lodge, sumptuous local cuisine at the Lazy Bear Café, and your warm room with comfy beds and all the modern amenities.

Arctic CrawlersTM, the custom-built tundra vehicles, will take you into the Churchill Wildlife Management Area. You will head right to the Polar Bear gathering spot where the bears wait for the winter icepack to freeze on the Hudson Bay. Curious and far from shy, the bears will sometimes come right alongside the vehicles to sneak a peek at their visitors.

During your stay at the Lodge, the Cultural and Heritage Tour takes you to Churchill and the surrounding area. You will explore the various historic sites including Cape Merry, the Polar Bear Jail (outside), the famous plane crash site of “Miss Piggy”, and many other historic spots that make Churchill the town it is today. Your Dog Mushing experience includes an approximate 1-2 mile experiential ride. The ride will be on sleds if there is snow, and on wheels if there is none. Since the dogs love to run, either ride will be exhilarating! Inside a warm tent with fresh bannock, local berry jam, coffee, hot chocolate and tea, you will learn how the dogs are trained, plus hear many entertaining stories.
