Polar Bear Mother and Newborn Cubs Photo Safari

Polar Bear Mother and Newborn Cubs Photo Safari

Witness newborn polar bear cubs emerging from their dens as their mother introduces them to the world.

erik_op_de_beeck_img_4573-2 Immerse yourself in the world’s largest polar bear denning area, adjacent to Wapusk National Park, for a sight rarely seen and available to only a few dozen people per year. Feel the exhilaration as you watch baby polar bears emerge from their dens and greet their new world. This lodge-based polar bear expedition offers a unique opportunity to observe polar bear cubs and their mothers in their natural habitat in a spectacular environment.

polar-bear-lodge_by-michelle-valberg-_mv83473 Our rustic, yet comfortable lodge is a refurbished Navy communications base located on top of an old beach ridge about 60km south of Churchill, MB, Canada. With a rare operating permit from Parks Canada, the lodge provides some of the best polar bear viewing at close proximity. You’ll have a chance to get as close as 100 metres from polar bears, while you learn about various aspects of their dens, habits, and life cycle. Other wildlife viewing opportunities include ptarmigan, Arctic foxes, caribou herds and wolves in addition to nighttime viewing of the legendary aurora borealis.

Highlights

  • Be one of only a few hundred in the world to see newborn polar bear cubs emerge from their den.
  • Witness shimmering and awe-inspiring northern lights.
  • Unique tracked heated vehicles offer unprecedented and comfortable access to polar bear denning habitats.
  • Enjoy dog sledding in Churchill, MB.
