Churchill Town and Tundra Experience

 

 

7 days from $4,999

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.Our hotel-based Adventures offer a well rounded program combining polar bear viewing with activities in and around the community of Churchill. These programs are designed for those who wish to learn about the history and culture of Churchill and region, as well as experience polar bears.On days that have a Tundra Buggy Adventure scheduled, participants will be transferred from town to the Tundra Buggy Launch where they will board a Buggy and begin their search for wildlife. The Buggy meanders over a system of established trails, stopping at leisure to enjoy the scenery, search for wildlife, and take photos. When daylight begins to fade, we'll head back to Launch and be transferred back to town and our hotels.Besides experiencing amazing polar bears from a Tundra Buggy and your Churchill hotel accommodations, you'll need to know what differentiates our Specialist, Enthusiast and Adventure departures.
