The Polar Bear Capital of the World

Located on the western shore of Hudson Bay and not accessible by road lies the small northern seaport of Churchill, Manitoba. Travelling on a Tundra Buggy is the most comfortable and safe way to experience polar bears in their natural environment. Plan to come to Churchill mid-October to mid-November when the bears are migrating to the coast, anticipating the winter freeze-up of Hudson Bay. When the Bay freezes, the polar bears can get onto the ice to hunt their favourite meal: seal.
Churchill is accessible only by charter flight from Winnipeg or via the Canadian railway which is a 3 day venture.
