Description of Polar Bear watching holiday, Canada

This polar bear watching holiday in Canada takes you to the little seaport of Churchill, in Manitoba. It lies on the shores of Hudson Bay, where polar bears come each October and November, ready for the cold weather that freezes the waters of the bay. Once this happens, the bears move onto the ice to hunt for seals.

We use a tundra buggy on this polar bear watching holiday, which is a safe and comfortable way to travel through the bears’ territory, providing lots of chances to see them up close, too. You will be staying in a hotel throughout, and polar bear watching is combined with other activities in Churchill, a small community with an interesting history and culture, for a perfectly balanced holiday.
