Located on the western shore of Hudson Bay and not accessible by road lies the small northern seaport of Churchill, Manitoba. Traveling on a Tundra Buggy is the most comfortable and safe way to experience a polar bear tour in the bears' natural environment.
Plan to come to Churchill during October or November when the bears are slowly congregating along the coast, anticipating the winter freeze-up of Hudson Bay. When the Bay freezes, the polar bears can get onto the ice to hunt their favourite meal, ringed seal.
We operate all our polar bear adventures (with the exception of our Legendary Cape Churchill adventure) approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of the town of Churchill in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area. This world-famous destination has the largest concentration of polar bears and provides the best opportunities to view and photograph arctic wildlife. We currently hold the most tourist vehicle permits issued by Manitoba Conservation for the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.
Depending on what your trip goals are, we can help accomplish them. What's most important to you? Photography opportunities? Price? Time? Cultural activities?
With a Tundra Buggy Adventure polar bear tour, we offer the most program options and departure dates to choose from, providing many excellent opportunities for you to experience wild polar bears from a Tundra Buggy!
A stay at The Tundra Buggy Lodge is the only way for anybody to experience the polar bears at Legendary Cape Churchill.Polar Bears at Legendary Cape Churchill
The most rewarding way to experience the polar bears of Churchill is to immerse yourself in their environment; from the moment you wake up, throughout the day and into the endless winter nights. The best way to accomplish this is a stay at our world famous Tundra Buggy Lodge. Although it's mobile, each fall for the last 20+ years the Lodge has been transported out and assembled in the best location for 'round the clock' bear viewing.Tundra Buggy Lodge at Polar Bear Point
Churchill is a small, northern community with a lot of character; you won't find one of the big-chain hotels here that you might find in a larger centre. You will, however, find warm, down-home hospitality and clean, comfortable hotels with all the amenities. Staying in town will allow you to walk to and from the different venues, spend some time on your own, and perhaps meet some of the locals.Churchill Town and Tundra Experience
Tundra Buggy Day Tours are offered in the summer and autumn. Tours take place in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.Tundra Buggy Tours
