Start your journey in the polar bear country on the western shore of Hudson Bay in the Canadian Subarctic.
Polar Bear Tundra Buggy
Polar Bear Tundra Buggy is located in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. The northeastern border of Manitoba, Canada, borders the cold waters of the Hudson Bay.
The town of Churchill, which sits about two-thirds of the way up the coast of Manitoba, is known as the polar bear capital of the world. As the temperatures begin to plummet in the fall months, polar bear families wait patiently on the shore, waiting for the waters of the bay to freeze.
The sea ice that forms over the surface of the bay serves as a critical hunting platform for polar bears, which make holes in the ice to capture gray seals, their primary source of food.
Through live chats and webcasts, you can join world-renowned scientists in Manitoba, Canada, as they observe and explain the annual migration of polar bears in Churchill.
Visitors to this remote corner of the world can observe polar bears up close from the safety of a Tundra Buggy, a low-impact, all-terrain vehicle designed by Frontiers North Adventures. And thanks to Polar Bears International and Explore.org, you can, too.
Tundra Buggy Lodge North
Tundra Buggy Lodge North is also located in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.
What’s it like to observe polar bears in the wild from just a few feet away? Hop into the Tundra Buggy Lodge outside of Churchill, Canada, to find out. Operated by Frontiers North, the lodge is a mobile chain of five Tundra Buggies linked together to form a train.
Built to navigate the harsh conditions of the Canadian Arctic, Tundra Buggies provide a safe vantage point from which to observe polar bears in their natural habitat.
Tundra Buggy Lodge South
Tundra Buggy Lodge South is also located in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. One of the best place in the world to observe wild polar bears up close.
Enjoy the unprecedented view from the Tundra Buggy Lodge, a mobile chain of Tundra Buggies that enables visitors to spend a warm and cozy night deep in the Canadian Arctic outside of Churchill, Canada.
Cape South, Wapusk National Park
Here in the protected enclave of Wapusk National Park in Manitoba, Canada, is one of the largest concentrations of polar bear maternity dens in the world.
In the late fall months, polar bear families gather on the park’s beaches, waiting for the Hudson Bay to freeze over. The layer of ice on the bay’s surface is critical for the survival of polar bears — they use the ice as a platform to hunt gray seals, their primary prey.
Cape North, Wapusk National Park
In Cree, Wapusk means “white bear,” so it is no wonder that this stretch of Wapusk National Park is known for the many female polar bears who give birth here.
In the winter months, watch as polar bears venture out onto the layer of ice covering the Hudson Bay. Used as a platform to catch the nutritious, blubber-rich gray seals polar bears depend on, this sea ice is critical to the species’ survival.
The tranquil, untouched landscapes of the Arctic are mesmerizing in their still beauty. Watch and listen as polar bears crunch through snow, icy winds blast through stark, snow-streaked mountains, and beluga whales float gracefully in the currents of the Hudson Bay.
Enjoy glimpses of Arctic foxes, owls and hares, and as the light fades, wait for the Northern Lights — the natural world’s most glorious light show — to dance against the clear dark sky.
Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights
Watch the most incredible light show on the planet from the Churchill Northern Studies Center in the small town of Churchill, Manitoba. This Canadian arctic locale is one of the best places on earth to watch the spectacular atmospheric phenomenon known as the aurora borealis and the Northern Lights.
Catch nightly starscapes, moonlit evenings and stunning light shows, live from the subarctic tundra. During daylight hours you may see sundogs, sunsets and snow storms. When the live cam’s offline, enjoy amazing recorded aurora borealis highlights.
