Polar Bear Adventure -Polar Rovers and Dog Sledding

Polar Rover – viewing polar bears safely


I am amazed at the scope and superior caliber of Natural Habitat Adventures. Among other things, they supplied our parkas, boots, charter to Churchill, and our viewing vehicles: polar rovers. The rovers were comfortable, roomy, and afforded us amazing up close and personal views of polar bears, foxes, birds. We were blessed with the ultimate guide, Justin Gordon, who regaled us with the area history and in depth lectures on the local wildlife. This has been one of the best educationals I have ever had the privilege of attending.
If you have a chance to travel with Nat Hab, jump on it!

Polar Bear Adventure – first stop Winnipeg

Reception Hall Fort Garry Hotel

Winnipeg was founded in the late 1700’s as a fur trading outpost. The city’s name came from nearby lake Winnipeg, a Cree word meaning muddy water. The Hudson Bay company settled there in the early 1800’s and established several forts-the last one being Fort Garry. Winnipeg was a railway hub and considered a major trading center,until the Panama Canal redirected trade. The train station was designed by the architect of New York’s Grand Central Station. We fly North by charter to Churchill, Manitoba. Churchill is on the Hudson Bsy. The major tribes in the Churchill area of were the Cree, Sayisi Dene, the Inuit and Metis.
Natural Habitat Adventures has set up headquarters at the hotel and there is where we pick up our heavy boots and Parkas

Polar Bear Capital in October- Churchill Manitoba

Such a thrill to see polar bears in ther natural habitat!

In October, polar bears converge in Churchill Manitoba, after spending the summer foraging in the countryside.
The rivers start freezing and the ice flows into the Hudson Bay. Polar Bears’ major food source are seals, and as the ice on the bay freezes over, the bears can get out to the seals. Churchill was founded in the 1600’s as a trading post for the fur trade by the Hudson Bay company. Located on the southwestern side of Hudson Bay, Churchill turns into the Polar Bear Capital starting around October.
Thanks to Natural Habitat Adventures, our Brownell group of advisors had the privilege of experiencing the adventure of a lifetime.
