Churchill Polar Bear Tours

Most experts agree that there is significant decline in polar bear populations taking place. Increases in global temperatures has resulted in the destruction of the bears' natural habitats. As a result, many of these creatures are having a hard time finding adequate amounts of food.

A recent report published by Earth hour and the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) estimated that wild polar bears could become extinct by the end of this century.

According to the report, "the thinning and earlier break-up of sea ice in the Arctic is believed to be reducing the body weights of female polar bears and by 2012 the average body weight may be too low for them to reproduce."

Of the world's 19 polar bear sub-populations, 5 are in a state of decline and 7 more could be facing the same problem (though more data needs to be collected to confirm this hypothesis). Fortunately, several of these subpopulations are coping with global climate changes. In fact, scientists believe that in Churchill, Manitoba - the "polar bear capital of the world" - their numbers might actually be increasing.

Churchill is a convergence point for over 1,200 polar bears each fall ad they move towards shallow waters to hunt for winter meals. Thousands of people visit this Hudson Bay town each year to get an up-close look at the world's largest land predator. The polar bear's brief migration period, and their potential disappearance, makes it crucial that anyone who wishes to see these creatures does so as soon as possible.

While visiting Churchill, tourists are treated to regular sightings of other animals, such as the rare arctic fox. Thos who venture out on the Churchill river may even catch a glimpse of the endangered Beluga whale.

If you wish to see the beauty of the vanishing polar bears, plan a 5 to 7-day trip to Churchill, Manitoba this fall. Fresh Tracks offers a wide variety of packages that will allow you and your family to get a close up view of these large predators. You will be escorted by trained professionals in an enclosed Tundra Buggy to ensure that you stay safe, but still get a face-to-face look at possibly hundreds of Canada's polar bears.

Hi, I'm Melanie!

“The lakes and mountains of British Columbia are what won my heart the first time I flew over the Rockies to come to Vancouver – it was love at first sight! Panorama Ridge, where I stand, with Garibaldi Lake in the background is one of many breath-taking views around Garibaldi National Park. It is a gorgeous place to hike, to camp, to breathe clean air and feel the calming energy of the giant peaks with their glaciers.”

Hi, I'm Kirsten!

“The glacial beauty of Moraine Lake in the Rockies first lured me to Canada, but it's the charm of Vancouver that has kept me here! Known as the modern ‘City of Glass’ it's surrounded by a stunning natural environment of ocean and mountains. This results in my perfect day: a morning of watching seaplanes take off from the harbour, and an afternoon to meet the resident grizzly bears on Grouse Mountain.”

Hi, I'm Angie!

“I love the West Coast! I moved here from Ontario years ago but am still in awe of the mountains and ocean. I commute to work from an island and am lucky enough to get to enjoy the natural beauty of the West Coast on a daily basis. Sometimes we're even greeted by whales or dolphins as we boat in! We're close to world-class ski mountains, beautiful city of Vancouver, and are just a short ferry ride away from Vancouver Island.”

Hi, I'm Greg!

“I am in love with our nation's capital, Ottawa. The city has many of its best sights within walking distance of each other. In the centre of it all are the inspiring gothic style parliament buildings, just steps away from the vibrant ByWard Market. And in what other city can you ice skate to work?! The Rideau Canal is a marvel that I will always remember.”

Hi, I'm Sarah!

“Toronto is an exciting and lively city! I visit every summer and love to explore the different neighbourhoods for samples of food and people watching. Taking in the old brick buildings and beautiful murals in Kensington Market, or the view of the entire city from the CN Tower – it's all a treat to experience and you never know what to expect while wandering the streets in a big city!”

Hi, I'm Richard!

Richard

“Nova Scotia was the first place in Canada I visited and has a special place in my heart. The rugged coastal scenery is beautiful, the people are the friendliest, and the fresh Atlantic seafood is delicious, not to mention reasonably priced! I loved touring the countryside, exploring quaint fishing villages and sampling the surprisingly good wineries. I also loved cosmopolitan Halifax – so much to do, and fascinating history!”

Hi, I'm Alysha!

Alysha

“Driving up the Sunshine Coast never fails to take my breath away. Tucked into BC's west coast, accessible only by ferry, this little paradise is as laid-back as it is scenic. I love spending a morning kayaking out on the ocean, an afternoon wandering through the local artisan shops, and an evening indulging in BC's freshest west coast cuisine (and a local craft beer or two!).”

Hi, I'm Eva!

Eva

“Montreal is my favourite city in Canada. It’s like a little slice of Europe, with narrow, cobblestone streets, oodles of history and, for the shopaholics out there, some of the best shopping on the continent. If you visit, be sure to try the poutine, a local delicacy of French fries, gravy and cheese curds.”

Hi, I'm Natalie!

Natalie

“I am completely smitten with the Maritimes and love how easy it is to cover New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI in one trip. The drive is half of the fun, with stunning seascapes and the amazing Confederation Bridge! The red sand and warm water at all of PEI's beaches completely captivated me. And of course, no PEI visit is complete without tasting some locally-made ice cream and freshly caught mussels!”

Hi, I'm Meaghan!

Meaghan

“Growing up in Oakville, ON, I was just a short distance from Toronto. Canada's largest city is a bustling metropolis with so many incredible attractions for just about anyone! There are world class museums, outdoor parks, boutique shops and international cuisine. Whenever I'm visiting, I love to take in some local theatre. From award-winning musicals to comedy, Toronto's theatre scene is one of the best in the world!”

Hi, I'm Holly!

Holly

“Vancouver is the love of my life. The stunning greenery and towering mountains that surround my city make it breathtakingly beautiful. Walking through Lynn Canyon or hiking up to Quarry Rock in North Vancouver, and I am in my happy place. I also love stopping by Granville Island after my adventures for the best food and drink to satisfy my growling belly! And then Kitsilano Beach is my favourite for sunset viewing.”
