Venturing out on a set of established trails to minimize the impact on the tundra, you’ll go into areas with a high probability of wildlife sightings, in particular the incredible polar bear.
In partnership with Polar Bears International, learn from an onboard researcher who can share fascinating facts and stories about these creatures.

This trip also offers opportunities to meet and interact with some of the local characters who call Churchill home. Visit the kennel of a local Indigenous dog musher, and get to play with the puppies and experience dog sledding for yourself.
