Take A Trip To Another World – Manitoba
There is a place in the northern region of Manitoba that will make you feel like you’re on another planet.
Exploring the foreign tundra brings you face to face with this area’s most famous attraction, the mighty polar bear. Watch Manitoba’s landscape shift from prairie, to boreal forest, to tundra on a train ride north. Or take in incredible arial views of Manitoba’s coastline along the Hudson Bay on descent after a short flight to Churchill.
Dubbed “Lords of the Arctic,” polar bears are the world’s largest land carnivores. They have no natural enemies. Consequently, they have no fear. There is nothing like feeling your heart pounding in your chest as a polar bear strides silently along the snow mere metres away. Churchill, known as the polar bear capital of the world, is one of the few human settlements where polar bears can be observed in the wild, and often very close. Unique tundra vehicles safely get you in the perfect position to watch and photograph these majestic bears. Or, you can walk amongst the bears – an adventure fueled by adreneline.
Prime viewing times are October and November, when the bears move to the shores of Hudson Bay where they wait for the ice to form, giving them access to their winter hunting grounds. Here is a world far from yours, and one that you’ll never want to leave. Welcome to Churchill.
