I have just returned from an extraordinary and once in a lifetime trip to Churchill, Manitoba in Canada to view magnificent polar bears. I just wanted to share some of the photographs taken by myself and fellow travellers on the trip. This area is renowned as the best location in the world to view and photograph wild polar bears. Each year, in October and November, the waters of Hudson Bay begin their big freeze; the Arctic winter is well underway. It is at this time that the polar bears congregate at Churchill, the ‘Polar Bear Capital of the World’ waiting for their opportunity to stock up on one of their favourite delicacies – the seals!

If viewing polar bears in on your wish list then now is the time to make your enquiries for next autumn; with our friends from Frontiers North, we are able to offer you the adventure of a lifetime, on a Tundra Buggy Adventure. Frontiers North is a local family-owned and operated business who are aware that their guests have invested time and money into visiting this remote area and their aim is that each of their guests will return home feeling that their expectations have been exceeded. Your adventure is planned by experienced wildlife and nature enthusiasts who understand the complexity of travelling in the wild north and who value both the local community and life-changing travel experiences. Call us for more information

But Autumn is not the only time to view polar bears in the wild. And did you know that during the summer, Churchill plays host to the world’s largest congregation of beluga whales? Frontier’s North latest adventure is their Big Five Safari, a nod to the incredible array of mega-fauna that populate the rivers, forests and tundra of the beautifulprovince ofManitoba. Here is what they say:

Join us and discover Manitoba‘s own Big Five: moose, black bear, bison, beluga whale, and polar bear. This tour is the first of its kind in Manitoba and the only one that offers an opportunity to see all of this wildlife in a single adventure. Our journey begins in Winnipeg, the geographic centre of North America. From there we travel over-land to Riding Mountain National Park. This rich wilderness in the midst of Manitoba’s prairie landscape covers 3,000 km2 (1158 sq. miles) of rolling hills and valleys. Bold boreal forest, expanses of meadows and lakes, lofty heights and deep gorges of the Manitoba Escarpment is home to moose, black bears, and a captive bison herd, not to mention hundreds of bird species, wolves and elk.

After enjoying the serene landscape of Manitoba’s southern plains we’ll travel north to Churchill where the boreal forest gives way to the rugged and barren tundra and where we will set out in search of the Lords of the Arctic, the mighty polar bear, and the canaries of the sea, beluga whales.

Well-paced day-to-day activities, comfortable accommodations, distinctive cuisine, and the opportunity to see a wide array of wildlife make this adventure a wildlife enthusiasts dream!
