We will meet at the hotel for a group orientation and dinner. The adventure begins!
Winnipeg to Churchill
We’ll have a repeat orientation for latecomers at the hotel, and then board our flight to Churchill; we’ll enjoy breakfast on board. A guided bus tour will explore attractions such as Cape Merry, Port of Churchill, and Manitoba Conversation’s Polar Bear Holding Facility (weather permitting).
After lunch, we’ll visit the Eskimo Museum, which features one of Canada’s finest collections of Inuit carvings, kayaks, and artifacts. We overnight at Churchill Hotel.
Tundra Buggy Adventure
Today will be spent in a Tundra Buggy with an expert local guide, viewing polar bears and other Arctic wildlife. All of our vehicles are furnished with dual pane frost-free windows and real-flame propane heating systems.
You will enjoy picnic-style lunches and refreshments while bear watching. The day concludes with an evening slide show conducted by seasoned residents of the area. Relax and soak up years of northern experience, enchanting stories, and magnificent photography.
Dog Sledding Excursion
In the morning, you’ll learn about the unique history of Canadian dogsledding from a local sledding expert. Then you’ll enjoy an exhilarating ride by sled (or cart, weather permitting). Enjoy hot chocolate, fresh bannock, and sledding stories after your ride.
During the afternoon, we’ll visit the Parks Canada Interpretive Centre. Here you’ll see wildlife dioramas and fur trade exhibits. View a series of videos on the history, culture, and wildlife of the area.
Tundra Buggy / Winnipeg
Today features another excursion via Tundra Buggy, including a picnic-style lunch and final opportunities for bear watching. Then we’ll gather our luggage and make our way to the airport.
At 19h00, we’ll board our evening flight to Winnipeg. Dinner will be served aboard. We’ll arrive in Winnipeg between 21h00 and 21h30. We overnight at the Four Points Sheraton again tonight.
