Canadian Arctic wildlife photo tours
Known as the “Polar Bear Capital of the World”, Churchill’s location offers unrivaled access to the Western Hudson Bay sub population. Arctic Wildlife Tours are now working on new destinations to this region of the Arctic. We expect to have more details for a trip in October - November 2025 ready during not too long time. The trips will be done from a lodge out in the wilderness close to the shorelines of Hudson Bay. We will experience the wildlife in eye level on ground. Wildlife like polar bears, gray wolves, foxes and ptarmigans. The lodge
Churchill surroundings is totally different from Svalbard. In Churchill we have trees and small forests nearby the ocean. The polar bears await the oceans to freeze up there and as soon it does, they disappear out on the ice for hunting their main pray - seals. To encounter polar bears their autumn is the best time to do it. From September to the end of November is the window for seeing them there under winter conditions. November gives us snow and snowdrifts, and Arctic Wildlife Tours choose to go for that to begin with. Dates and more information will be published here soon.
Hudson Bay is located directly under the auroral oval. This means there is always the possibility of the Northern Lights making an appearance. If the lights come out during your trip we will take the group out to photograph in our favorite spots for no extra charge.
The tour includes air travels to Churchill and to a remote location out in the field near Hudson bay. Accommodation, transportation, all meals, guiding and workshop for wildlife photography is included.
