Each October/November, along the west shore of Canada's Hudson Bay, Polar bears gather near the remote and tiny town of Churchill, Manitoba waiting for the bay to freeze over so they can venture out onto the harden ice and begin their annual hunt for seals. Not accessible by road, Churchill is often referred to as the polar bear capital of the world.
This fully guided holiday offers a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe these magnificent, endangered animals up close. You'll stay in a cosy wooden lodge where you'll learn about the history of Hudson Bay past and present, in front of a crackling fire before you embark on a heated tundra buggy adventure out into the frozen Arctic.
