      My mom & I trekked to Churchill, Manitiba, Canada to watch the annual polar bear migration as they headed to the rapidly-freezing Hudson Bay in search of seals. It was fantastic to see these animals up close in their natural habitat.

  • Face to face with a polar bear Face to face with a polar bear in Churchill, Manitoba

    • From: gizlau
    • Description:

      I've been dreaming to go to Churchill, Manitoba in northern Canada for years to see the polar bears.  Booked a trip with Natural Habitat Adventures for a 6-day Classic Polar Tour offered mid-October to mid-November annually.  This is when polar bears are migrating and waiting along the shores of the Hudson Bay in Churchill for the ice to form.  We travelled on a tundra buggy and here was one encounter I had with a polar - literally, face to face.  The photo is taken with a 50mm and he was about 2 feet away.  Absolutely stunning.

      Here is a shot taken on a tundra buggy with a 80-400mm lens.  It's amazing seeing the bears in their element.

  • Polar Bear Wildlife Adventure Polar Bear Wildlife Adventure

    • From: wwwmarge
    • Description:

        My son and I took part in a fly-in Canadian wildlife adventure to see polar bears in late September 2008. Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is near Cape Tatnum on Hudson Bay, about 160 miles southeast of Churchill. It's on the southern tip of Wapusk National Park. Nanuk is in a remote area with nothing but tundra grass and a few groups of 200 year old slim type evergreen trees.

        Awesome, can hardly describe what we experienced and saw. This is a very unique program seeing polar bears at very close range, in the wild, on a open wagon pulled by a ATV. There are five ATV’s with armed drivers and 3 open wagons.

        Nanuk takes only small groups for polar bear viewing from July to late September. The charter leaves from Gillam, Manitoba in two small eight seater planes. When we arrived there was a sow and her two small cubs waiting for us at the 8’ Buffalo fence. Needless to say that was our first thrill and they never stopped. When a bear is at the fence you are able to be within 3’. Of course, we are the ones fenced in not the bears. After a very nice lunch, we headed out on the ATV driven buggies to see six more polar bears out by the coast. A mother and her cub or cubs will stay by themselves and the only boar was always quite some distance away. Just once did the females chase him away. We didn’t see what they did but he took off running non-stop for a lease 1/2 mile.

        One day we saw all nine together in a group eating and at other times mom's nursing their cubs.  We could hear the one set of older cubs (maybe three years old) crying to nurse and mom finally got up and walked a little away from us to nurse them. We were so close that the photos are awesome.

        We went out two times a day and each time the bears would be doing something different. On our last morning one of the mother’s joined her two cubs that were into some serious playtime.

        One of the native guides, Albert would go out early in the morning and call for moose but all we ever saw were tracks.  Seven black wolves did shown up which gave us concern about the younger clubs.  Each day there were thousands and thousands of geese heading south. We would wake up each morning hearing their honking. Many birds, ducks and geese were always near the coast every day.

        We experienced 28 or below to 55 degrees of windy weather but because of the wind chill factor it was cold. Good outerwear, snow type boots and warm gloves are a must. Rain can be expect most of the time in the fall, but of our four days, we only had rain one night which added to this spectacular and invigorating adventure.

        On our first night I looked out the cabin window to see the biggest Big Dipper. Just huge! We had hoped to be able to see the Aurora Borealis but it was only viewed one night and not a very good display. Still it was exciting to see the whole sky a wash with light fuzzy white colors, swirling around us. It was like we were in outer space.
