Almost everything you want to get out of an Arctic adventure you can find in Churchill, Canada. As the polar bear capital of the world, the northern territory boasts incredible wildlife, natural beauty across the vast landscape, incomparable views of the Northern Lights and epic adventure excursions.

 

Tundra Lodge Adventure

Support sustainable tourism in an unforgettable setting on your next family adventure. Check out the Tundra Lodge Adventure out of Churchill, Canada, during the six–seven-day tour with Adventure Smith Explorations. The Tundra
Lodge, a completely custom-designed rolling
hotel, offers both comfort and
seclusion while putting you and the family in close proximity to polar
bears in their natural habitat.

 

The all-terrain Polar Rovers transports guests on day excursions for intimate encounters and unforgettable tours through the wild terrain. Watch out the window as curious polar bears approach, getting a closer look at their visitors, while you take photos from the safety and comfort of the vehicle.

Trips begin at $8,295–10,395 per person based on the season and double occupancy. Prices include round-trip flights to and from Winnipeg and Churchill — which can be quite pricey on its own — all meals, beverages, accommodations and several excursions. Head out on a dog sledding excursion with the family and enjoy the use of cold-weather gear, assistance from excursion professionals and entrance fees on most daytrip adventures.

 

Prime wildlife viewing can be achieved each fall from October–November, when polar bears migrate to Hudson Bay to hunt.

 

Churchill Nature Tours

Take a quick polar excursion or two-week adventure with Churchill Nature Tours. Operating in polar bear country since the 1980s, Churchill Nature packages are all-inclusive and are perfect for the naturalist-minded and wildlife-loving family.

 

Packages include meals, lodging, transportation, transfers, entry fees, baggage handling and a variety of day excursions. Choose from a lineup of expert-operated trips — some of which include tours by land and helicopter. Complete outfitting services are available as well as environmental education tours, private outings and custom-designed excursions.
