Much like the bears themselves, visitors make their way to Churchill each fall when temperatures drop, brimming with anticipation. The reward: experiences of a lifetime.

As polar bears await the formation of the arctic sea ice, they descend upon the tiny seaport town of Churchill, forming a celebration—a polar bear gathering—and in this case, the largest congregation of polar bears in the world. As they wait for the Hudson Bay to freeze so they can begin their hunt for ringed and fur seal, it is possible to observe, photograph, and learn about the “Kings of the North.”

On this wildlife expedition, surrounded by experts and featuring up-close experiences, be part of an extraordinary natural phenomenon and unforgettable adventure.
