Walking with polar bears in Canada

 

A VIP  BEAR EXPEDITION LIKE NO OTHER!

Our polar bear photography expedition is open to anyone that would like to enjoy world-class intimate encounters with polar bears on the Canadian Tundra but photography pros or serious amateurs will find this trip especially rewarding.

 

Polar Bear Photography Trip

 

Seeing the bears from one of the well known, high-sided tundra vehicles can be fun but the unstable platform, mobility restrictions, and lofty perspectives  are not ideal for capturing dynamic images.

We have the ability to move quickly across the tundra to take advantage of the best light and the movements of the bears. You will be able to leave your SUV, set up a tripod (when it is safe to do so) and photograph the bears at eye level.

THE POLAR BEAR CAPITAL OF THE WORLD

During the fall months, polar bears congregate along the southern shoreline of Hudson Bay waiting for the sea ice to freeze. At that point they leave land for the winter season to hunt on the ice.

The ideal time to see polar bears around Churchill is during October and November. In particular, early November (when we schedule our trips) is widely considered to be the perfect time to look for bears.

NORTHERN LIGHTS

Although bear season is often overcast, the northern lights (Aurora Borealis) are often visible on clear nights and the nights are long in November so there is plenty of time to look for them.

ARCTIC FOXES

You also have an excellent chance of seeing arctic foxes hunting on the tundra. It is not uncommon to see numerous foxes everyday; sporting their white, winter pelage. Arctic foxes are another species that is best photographed from ground level.
