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.

Sample Itinerary

Think of this itinerary as just a starting point. Our experienced Canadian Insiders will create a personalized experience for you that matches your schedule, travel style and budget.

Itinerary for a 5 Day & 4 night Itinerary

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.

Overnight in Winnipeg.

Day 2 – Winnipeg to Churchill
Fly from Winnipeg to Churchill this morning. Enjoy your day in Churchill exploring First Nations culture. Suggested visits include the Itsanitaq 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.

Overnight in Churchill.

Day 3 – Polar Bear Viewing from Churchill
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 along with many other arctic animals. This is why you’ve come to Churchill, so be sure to have your camera ready!

Overnight in Churchill.

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. Depart Winnipeg at your leisure.

Note – 4 day, 3 night itinerary has one less night in Churchill

Common Questions

Will it be cold when I visit Canada in summer?

The temperature varies from mild to hot, depending on location. Northern Canada will range between 50°F to 64°F (10°C – 18°C) in summer. The interior of BC, prairies, Ontario and Quebec can reach temperatures around 95°F (35°C). Canada's west coast, mountain regions, and Maritimes enjoy milder summer temperatures. They range on average from 59°F to 77°F (15°C – 25°C).

What are the best ways to travel around Canada on my vacation?

Canada has a network of spectacular roadways, train routes, ferry crossings, and float planes. We can arrange for you to travel by car or to sit back and relax.

Is it safe to drive in the mountains?

New visitors will drive with ease because of the wide and well maintained roadways. We'll ensure your trip includes the most spectacular and safest routes throughout your trip.

When is the best time to see wildlife?

That depends on the destination and type. As a rule, the main feeding and migration seasons are best for wildlife experiences. Tell us which animals interest you and we'll make your trip coincide with the best viewing season.

Are your tours escorted?

No, but you'll feel like it is with all your connections and experiences prearranged. Our clients love the freedom and flexibility it gives them. Some of our wildlife experiences are small group tours led by specialist guides.
