HOT Bucket List: 
Polar Bears in Churchill, Canada 

Visitors from around the world visit each autumn for the excitement of seeing these magnificent Polar Bears in their natural habitat.  Prime viewing times are in October and November, when the bears begin their move from their summer habitat on the tundra back to seal-hunting territory – the pack ice that forms over Hudson Bay.  Unique local tundra vehicles, designed to move smoothly over snow and ice, protect passengers from curious or hungry bears.

4 reasons to put this experience on your Bucket List:
HOT Bucket icon Churchill is one of the few human settlements where polar bears can be observed in the wild and is nicknamed ‘the polar bear capital of the world’ due to the high concentration of bears in the area
HOT Bucket icon Frequently called “Lords of the Arctic”, these spectacular animals are huge. Male polar bears can grow to more than 600kg and stand 3.05 metres tall. But don’t let their massive size fool you – these white bears can move with surprising speed and agility. They truly are a sight to behold
HOT Bucket icon Enjoy the comfort of the specially designed Tundra buggies which enable you to get close to the bears, safely, in their natural environment
HOT Bucket icon The knowledgeable guides in the buggies will tell you all you need to know about these amazing animals and answer questions you may have
