A Total Immersion in the North, Including Dog Sledding & a Helicopter Trip to a Polar Bear Den

This expedition is our most thorough encounter with the world of the polar bear and the Canadian North. Travel in heated Polar Rovers over the tundra to watch the bears play and interact, entertaining us just feet away from our large picture windows. But this grand adventure doesn’t end there: We’ll also helicopter in to the bears’ denning area, experience the northern boreal wilderness on an authentic dog sled ride, and enjoy cultural activities with local residents. When night falls, keep your fingers crossed to see the swirling colors of the aurora borealis, as vivid here as any place on earth. “Ultimate Churchill” is the ultimate North!

  • Day1 - 2
    Winnipeg, Manitoba Our polar bear trip begins in Winnipeg, once a fur-trading post and boomtown for the Canadian Pacific Railway, today Manitoba’s cultural and commercial capital at the eastern edge of Canada’s vast prairies. Transfer to the historic Fort Garry Hotel, grande dame of Winnipeg hospitality and one of the city’s most prestigious landmarks. Meet your Expedition Leader at an orientation dinner this evening.
    Fort Garry Hotel | Breakfast Included
  • Day2 - 3
    Winnipeg / Churchill / Night Tundra Excursion Fly to Churchill via our private chartered plane and explore this remote small community on a guided tour with our Expedition Leader. Originally a fur-trading post, Churchill is home to just under a thousand people and, in late fall, to hundreds of polar bears that congregate at the edge of Hudson Bay. We head to the tundra this evening for our first glimpse of the bears. Dinner is served aboard our enclosed Polar Rover in heated comfort.
    Churchill 3* Hotel | Breakfast Included
  • Day3 - 4
    Helicopter Tour / Dog Sledding / Northern Culture An exciting adventure is in store as we soar over the tundra in helicopters, surveying the frozen landscape below. From the air we may see polar bears, caribou and arctic fox. Landing on the tundra, we disembark to explore on foot, perhaps even crawling inside an unoccupied polar bear den. We also sample an age-old means of Arctic transportation on a dog sledding excursion. We'll learn about the life of a musher, visit with the dogs, observe the team as they prepare for the run, then head out for an unforgettable ride behind an eager team of pure canine power! Our immersion in Northern culture continues as Native hosts tell us about their traditions and what their daily lives are like. These captivating storytellers share tales from their personal histories and offer insight into the vibrant nations that have flourished amid adversity in this harsh environment for thousands of years. We'll also visit Churchill's Eskimo Museum, with artifacts collected from centuries of local habitation.

  • Day4 - 5
    Polar Bear Viewing Polar Bear Viewing Our unique Polar Rovers are our mobile means for a full day on the tundra among the polar bears. Although these custom-designed vehicles accommodate up to 35 passengers, we take a maximum of 16, ensuring everyone a window seat. Our Expedition Leaders know the best places to see bears, which are waiting for the ice to solidify on Hudson Bay in order to begin the winter seal-hunting season. As we watch the bears interact, we're delighted by their antics and rugged beauty. We'll have dinner back in town, and enjoy a presentation on wildlife or cultural aspects of life in the North.
    Churchill 3* Hotel | Breakfast Included
  • Day5 - 6
    Polar Bear Viewing / Aurora Domes Once again we board our exclusive Polar Rovers for a full-day excursion to explore the subarctic scenery and watch wildlife. Our pace is leisurely as we move over the tundra, pausing whenever we see bears to observe their behavior and capture photos. Tonight, if skies are clear, we’ll visit a heated aurora dome in hopes of witnessing the northern lights. The phenomenon often begins slowly as a faint white glow, then intensifies in scope and color as the lights undulate across the sky, shimmering curtains of electric green, waves of blue or even red. The Hudson Bay Inuit see the lights as the magical display of their ancestors’ souls dancing in the sky. Though we now know the aurora borealis is caused by the interaction of the solar wind with the earth’s magnetic field, they are no less entrancing.
    Churchill 3* Hotel | Breakfast Included
  • Day6 - 7
    Churchill / Winnipeg After time to pick up some last-minute Native crafts and souvenirs in town, we enjoy a farewell lunch in Churchill. We then fly back to Winnipeg, where we have a final dinner before our adventure concludes.
    Fort Garry Hotel | Breakfast Included
  • Day7
    Winnipeg / Depart After breakfast, transfer to the airport for departing flights.
