Polar Bears at Legendary Cape Churchill

Top  

Cape Churchill provides the most breathtaking and exciting polar bear experiences and photography available anywhere. Frontiers North is the only company in the world who can offer this unique, land–based arctic expedition to the heart of polar bear country

Renowned as the best location in the world to view and photograph wild polar bears, Frontiers North Adventures is granted exclusive access to Cape Churchill, inside Wapusk National Park. Located about 30 kilometers (or 20 miles) east of Polar Bear Point, we cross the frozen tidal flats of Hudson Bay to Cape Churchill where we are surrounded by snow, ice and polar bears.

By day we will venture out in Tundra Buggies, and by night we will enjoy the comforts of our tundra home on the Tundra Buggy Lodge. This Specialist-level adventure is intended for those interested in the ultimate bear viewing and photography expedition. You’ll spend full days on the tundra providing the maximum amount of time with the wildlife. Space is extremely limited on this one-of-a-kind expedition; reserve early.

*Tour capacity for Legendary Cape Churchill is 40 guests at the Tundra Buggy Lodge; however, during the day guests are split into groups of a maxiumum of 10 guests per buggy to maximize space for photography opportunities.
