Churchill, Manitoba on Hudson Bay is considered the polar bear capital of the world, and this 2-day trip will introduce you to its star citizens at a comfort level.
Obviously, the polar bear is not the sort of animal you want to pat on the back, so we'll keep you safe and sound in a Tundra Buggy while still getting amazingly close to these awe-inspiring animals. A photographer's dream, a once-in-a-lifetime experience—superlatives can't express the feeling of seeing polar bears in their arctic home.
