Holiday overview

On the picturesque coastline of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba, the once-prosperous trading post of Churchill is regarded as one of the best places on earth to see polar bears. On this tour, you'll venture out on special Tundra Buggies, 4x4 jeeps adapted for life in the Arctic and converted to maximise your bear-viewing experience. In the company of expert local guides, you'll follow the annual polar bear migration, returning each night to cosy, log-cabin accommodation complete with roaring fires, gourmet food and, with luck, views of the Northern Lights. There's even the chance to try dog sledding and, weather permitting, enjoy a helicopter flight.

The next couple of days are given over entirely to exploring the region in purposely built Tundra Buggies, designed to cover huge areas of this starkly beautiful region while following the annual polar bear migration.

Weather permitting, you might also catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights while optional dog-sledding excursions, guided wilderness walks and helicopter flights provide further fun.
