About This Trip

Viewing polar bears in the wild is tough. Their habitat is remote, untouched and bitterly cold, but we have uncovered the best way to explore the natural habitat of these incredible predators. Spend your days travelling the frozen tundra on your customised Tundra Buggy and your evenings with polar bear experts in the most unique polar lodge in the world.   

 

This trip is a chance to really get away from it all. You will fly from Winnipeg to the tiny town of Churchill, a polar outpost on the Hudson Bay. From here you will head out to Tundra Buggy Lodge, a cozy wood walled lodge situated way out at Polar Bear Point, which might give you some indication of what is to come. You will take daily safaris in the custom-made Tundra Buggy, an incredible machine, comfortable on the inside, rugged and unstoppable on the outside. Your daily drives will focus on the wildlife and geology of this unbelievable region of the planet, setting your eyes on places that few people on earth have ever seen. Your expert drivers and guides will ensure you get every opportunity to watch the world's greatest predator at work and play, observing as much polar bear behaviour as they possibly can. 

 

The Tundra Buggy can also take you right out into the night, ensuring no light pollution when solar activity is at its peak and the Aurora Borealis paints the sky with undulating streaks of greens and pinks. This is a chance to explore this beautiful landscape with true experts, immersing yourself in the lifestyle of a frontier outpost and getting back in touch with nature in all its raw beauty.

highlights

There are very few places in the world that are truly untouched and nature remains in its completely original form. The frozen north of Manitoba in Canada is one of these places. Not only is it spectacular, but it is one of the best spots on the planet to watch polar bears in their natural habitat. Getting out into this landscape is an issue, but with the wonderful team at Tundra Buggy Lodge, we have overcome this. 

 

The Lodge itself is a luxury bunkhouse, which may sound contradictory, but bear with us. This is bunk accommodation like no other, with inbuilt cabin beds, each with a sound-blocking curtain and the ability to adjust the temperature in your own pod. The whole lodge is so geared towards observing polar bears that it is actually made from a series of Tundra Buggies, so it is able to relocate, depending on where the best polar bear sightings are. The lodge is also geared towards learning and relaxing, with several different types of observatories, huge lounges and theatres where you can relax over wine with your fellow arctic explorers before settling down to fascinating presentations from leading experts in the world of polar bears.
