Day 1 Winnipeg, Manitoba
Our tour begins in Winnipeg. You will meet your Expedition leader in the evening at your orientation dinner.
Day 2 Winnipeg to Churchill – evening on the Tundra
Fly to Churchill in the morning, our base for our polar bear adventure. We head to the tundra this evening for our first glimpse of the bears. If we are lucky, our night time excursion might reveal one of nature’s most exhilarating experiences – a chance to view the Northern Lights!
Day 3 Polar Bear Viewing
Uniquely designed Polar Rovers are our mobile means for spending time amongst the bears. We take a maximum of sixteen, ensuring everyone has a window seat. Our Expedition leaders know the best places to see polar bears, as these majestic creatures congregate to the region each fall.
Day 4 Polar Bear Viewing
You will be delighted by their rugged beauty and playful antics, as we watch the bears interact. From the warmth of our vehicle, we may see mothers with cubs, young males play-fighting, or a lone bear ambling over the tundra in solitary grandeur.
Day 5 Explore Churchill / fly to Winnipeg
You will have time to explore historic Churchill before boarding our afternoon flight back to Winnipeg. A highlight this morning is an authentic dog sled ride. We meet a local musher and his team, spending time with the lively and affectionate dogs before taking turns riding behind them on an exhilarating trot through the boreal forest. We enjoy a farewell lunch in Churchill and will have a final dinner reception before our adventure concludes in Winnipeg.
Day 6 Depart Winnipeg
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight home.
