Why we don't do online booking?

Online booking sites prefer you do not bother them at all. Our approach is completely the opposite – instead we put visitors directly in touch with our Canadian travel insiders because we believe the best vacations are personal.

Itinerary

Itinerary for a 5 Day & 4 night trip

Day 1 – Winnipeg Arrival
Today you will arrive independently in Winnipeg, where the day is yours to explore. Consider visiting the Manitoba Museum, which has nine galleries displaying historical artifacts, or the Royal Canadian Mint to learn about Canadian coins, or strolling down to the Forks, a funky market which is one of the city’s most popular gathering places.

Spend this evening in a comfortable Winnipeg hotel.

Day 2 – Winnipeg to Churchill
Fly from Winnipeg to Churchill this morning. Enjoy your day in Churchill exploring First Nations culture at the Eskimo Museum or visit the Parks Canada Interpretive Centre for an in-depth look at the history, wildlife and culture of Churchill.

Enjoy a relaxing evening at your warm and welcoming Churchill hotel.

Day 3 – Bear Viewing
This morning you board your Tundra Buggy, a specially designed vehicle made for polar bear research and viewing. Spend the day searching for wildlife; polar bears gather here in the hundreds along with many other arctic animals. This is why you’ve come to Churchill, so be sure to have your camera ready!

This evening return to your hotel for a restful evening.

Day 4 – Churchill to Winnipeg
You will spend another exciting day today aboard a Tundra Buggy. If you didn’t catch that perfect photo yesterday, today is your second chance!

This afternoon you return to Churchill, where you have some more time to explore before being transferred to the airport for an evening flight to Winnipeg. Overnight in Winnipeg.

Day 5 – Depart with Fond Memories
Much too soon you leave the fresh air and bright colors of Canada behind as your polar bear adventure comes to an end.
