  3. Day 2 Fly into the Tundra

    Rise early this morning for your flight to Churchill, where your private charter will be waiting to whisk you into polar bear country and Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. The aerial view from the plane often provides fantastic photo opportunities - and keep your eyes peeled for caribou and polar bears. When you arrive there will be time for you to settle in before lunch, after which your hosts will provide an orientation. Then it's time to head out. This afternoon there will be a guided walk on the inland Palsa Bogs and the Tundra Ponds which lie adjacent to the Hudson Bay coastline and Taiga Forest. This evening, canapes and dinner will be served and there will be a slideshow presented by one of the knowledgeable guides.

  4. Day 3 - 5 Nature Trekking and Polar Bears

    The movements of the bears will determine your trips for the day; if they are nearby, the team recommend staying back at the lodge to take advantage of photo and observation opportunities; if they are further away, however, you will most likely head out after breakfast to find them. Depending on ground conditions, there are a number of excursions available, including full day tours into the river deltas and forests or a shorter ATV tour along Hudson Bay's tidal flats. There is always the option to be more leisurely and stay close to the lodge, which is often visited by the King of the Arctic. In the evening, delicious dinners provide the opportunity to catch up with your fellow guests around the fire as well as for informal slide-shows and lectures. The clear night skies of the Arctic are excellent for viewing Aurora Borealis in all her glory; the team keep watch each night and provide a wake-up call to ensure nobody misses out if the lights do make an appearance.

Dine at one of your guide's recommended restaurants, visit the Eskimo Museum, or enjoy an afternoon dog sledding or helicopter tour. Your onward flight to Winnipeg will depart in the evening. You will be met on arrival and driven to your hotel for the night.
