There are few sights more mind-blowing than that first glimpse of soft fur against white snow as you cross the tundra in search of polar bears. After a night in Winnipeg, you’ll fly to the remote northern community of Churchill, your base for two days of polar bear tracking. You know you’re heading into barely charted territory when you need a specially constructed vehicle — your Tundra Buggy® will transport you across frozen plains. But this isn’t just polar bear territory and, as you journey through remote ice fields, you could also spot caribou, arctic fox, snowy owls, and other arctic dwellers.
Make your way independently to Winnipeg and check-in at the Four Points by Sheraton Winnipeg Airport. In the evening, you will meet your Frontiers North Adventures Representative for a brief orientation. Overnight at Winnipeg Airport.
This morning you depart from Winnipeg on an early chartered flight to the remote community of Churchill, Manitoba. Upon arrival into Churchill, you will be met by a Frontiers North representative and transferred to the town. There is ample time to discover Churchill’s personality by exploring unique shops, family-run restaurants boasting delicious regional cuisine, and a cultural museum that portrays the historical importance of the area. During your free time, be sure to visit the Parks Canada Interpretive Centre and the Itsanitaq Museum. Spend the next 2 nights in Churchill. (B)
Today you board a world-famous Tundra Buggy® — a specially constructed vehicle that travels across the tundra to explore polar bear habitat. Enjoy a full-day Tundra Buggy® Adventure in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area – home of polar bears, arctic foxes, ptarmigan and other unique arctic wildlife. Wear comfortable, layered clothing. Each Tundra Buggy is heated and equipped with washroom facilities and an external viewing platform. Return back to town around 5:00pm. Breakfast and a picnic style lunch and refreshments are provided. (B/L)
Your final day in Churchill is spent enjoying another day aboard the Tundra Buggy® exploring the Churchill Wildlife Management Area. After the tour, you will be transferred to Churchill's airport for the flight back to Winnipeg. Upon arrival, you'll be transferred to your hotel for check-in. Breakfast, lunch and a light meal on the plane are included. Overnight at Winnipeg Airport. (B/L/D)
Today you check out of your hotel and depart for home, or continue on to your next destination.
Meals: 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches on board the Tundra Buggy® on day 3 and 4, and light meal on-board the plane on day 4.

Electronic Travel Authorisation (eTA)
Visitors travelling to or transiting through Canada by air are now expected to get an electronic travel authorisation (eTA) to enter Canada. If you’re arriving into Canada by air from either the UK or another destination e.g. the USA, you’ll need an eTA. This costs CA$7 and lasts for 5 years or until your passport expires, whichever is first. If you’re travelling by land or sea, you won’t need an eTA when you enter Canada. However, you must travel with acceptable travel documents and identification, i.e. your passport.
For more information on eTA system, and to apply online, visit the official Canadian government website.
