Explore the heart of Canada – Winnipeg, a city of culture, architecture and arts. A two day train journey through the prairies of Canada to a small, coastal town in the far north, a town that isn’t even connected to a road. Add on the attraction of this town and you’ve got a winner. Up close and personal, the largest land carnivores in Canada – polar bears, right here in Churchill, Manitoba.

I’m your guide to see the wonders of Churchill and all of its uniqueness. Each time I do this trip, I can’t help but just fall in love with the surroundings. I know, for a fact, that some of the polar bears recognize me. Every year you see the same bears, the same people, the same natural surroundings. But each day is so fantastically unique. I remember riding home in the guide van at the end of the day with 12 other guides and each day, all we could talk about were the amazing experiences we had. Whether your interests be photography, sightseeing, educational or animal viewing, this tour holds it all for you.

Come join me on my favourite yearly migration to see the polar bears of Churchill. All of our tours are all inclusive so if I mention something that we’re doing, it’s included.
