Polar Bear Mother and Newborn Cubs Photography Safari

OVERVIEW

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

Witness a sight rarely seen and available to only a few dozen people per year.

Adjacent to Wapusk National Park and the world’s largest polar bear denning area, this lodge-based expedition led by Arctic Kingdom Expeditions offers a unique opportunity in North America to see polar bear cubs and their mothers in their natural habitat. 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, Lodge guides brings visitors as close as 100 meters to the 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.

Join us for a very rare opportunity.
