This trip was wonderful - expensive but wonderful!
We did it as part of a trip - the Polar bears were one of the highlights. I had always wanted to see the Northern Lights and we got to see them during the trip which was fantastic as well.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the nature, the polar bears, the northern lights
  • Cons:the cold and the distance and the price
  • In a nutshell:it is unique.... we had to do it!

    Wow this looks really interesting. We would love to see any sort of bears outside of a zoo.

    Tonight one of the German TV stations (Phoenix) broadcast a documentary about Churchill, showing the same tour you were on -- and lots of bears, of course. Also a cabin the bears had broken into over night.
