Travel to the frozen reaches of Canada to see the magnificent Polar Bears in their natural environment.  Operated by a family business that has been going for over three decades, this wonderful adventure immerses you in the local culture and gives you an experience you will never forget.  Stop in Winnipeg as the starting point before heading to the township of Churchill, on the edge of Hudson Bay and the most northly settlement in Manitoba.   From here, travel over the local landscapes – known as the Churchill Wildlife Management Area – in a custom made 4x4 vehicle called the Tundra Buggy to see polar bears and more local wildlife in their autumn environment.
