Travel with us to Northern Manitoba and witness polar bears in their natural habitat. Lasting memories are created as a giant polar bear lifts himself onto his hind legs and places a paw on the tundra vehicle. It’s as if his curiosity is as strong as yours! Churchill is one of the most accessible areas in the world to view these outstanding mammals. When the Hudson Bay thaws each year the polar bears are forced to come ashore. During the summer, this area is one of the largest polar bear denning locations in the world. From October to late November the bears congregate near Churchill to wait for the ice to form allowing them to hunt for seals. Join us for this unforgettable discovery!

Day 5 Churchill to Winnipeg

After enjoying a hearty breakfast, we embark on another guided adventure to witness the Polar Bears from our tundra vehicles. Did you know that the Polar Bear is the world’s largest land carnivore (shares this title with the Kodiak Bear) and also the largest bear? An adult male weighs between 770–1500 lbs and measures 7.9–9.8 ft in length. An adult female is roughly half the size of males and normally weighs 330–550 lbs and measures 5.9–7.9 ft in length. When pregnant, however, females can weigh as much as 1,100 lb! Polar Bears’ scientific name means “maritime bear.” Keep these facts in mind as you experience the Polar Bears today. We will experience another on-board lunch served by our guides. This evening we will fly back to Winnipeg for a restful night before our drive back home.
