Polar Bear Migration in Churchill, Manitoba
Join us in Churchill, Manitoba - Bring your Camera and Your Sense of Adventure as we head north to Polar Bear Country. The town of Churchill, nestled on the shores of Hudson Bay, is 650 miles north of Winnipeg. Churchill is known as the Polar Bear Capital of the World. Every autumn, polar bears gather along the water’s edge near the town, anxiously waiting for the sea ice to form. Once the bay freezes over, the bears move out onto the ice where they will spend the winter. We have planned and executed 5 tours to the Arctic in recent years. They were each unique and memorable experiences.
