POLAR BEARS OF CHURCHILLView magnificent Polar Bears.
Experience one of the world’s great wildlife adventures on the shores of Hudson Bay in Manitoba. Each year in the autumn, scores of polar bears gather near Churchill, waiting for the bay to freeze over so that they can venture out onto the ice to hunt seals, their favourite prey. The world’s largest carnivore, these magnificent looking animals weigh up to 500 kg and stand up to an incredible 3 metres tall. The bears are viewed from specially designed all-terrain vehicles called Tundra Buggies®, which allow you to watch and photograph the polar bears at close quarters and in safety. The buggies are heated, have washrooms, and opening windows. You can either stay on the Tundra Buggy Lodge or a small hotel in Churchill.
