Overview

Our Adventurer tour is our most cost effective, “no-frills” option.

A great option for the independent traveler, this program is designed for those individuals who may not have as much travel time, or for those who wish to come to Churchill to see polar bears, but are not necessarily interested in taking part in community-based activities. Enjoy two days on the Tundra Buggy viewing bears: hotel accommodations, transfers, flights, and Tundra Buggy lunches included.

Accommodations

Churchill Hotels
Churchill is a small, northern community with a lot of character and warm hospitality.  You won’t find big-chain hotels here.  However, you will find our hotels in town to be clean and comfortable with all of the amenities. (You will find them comparable to a good motel in other locations across North America.)

A hotel-based tour is for those who would prefer a little more comfort, enjoy spending a little more time on your own and appreciate privacy in the evenings. Staying in town will allow you to walk to and from the different places of interest, shops and restaurants.  Perhaps even meet some of the locals!

Our hotels include the Bear Country Inn, Polar Inn, Aurora Inn, Seaport Hotel, Northern Nights Lodge and the Tundra Inn.

During the day, you will be transferred from town to the Tundra Buggy Launch where you will board a Buggy and begin your tundra adventure.  The Tundra Buggy meanders over a system of trails, stopping at leisure to enjoy the scenery, search for wildlife and take photos. When daylight fades, we’ll head back to the Launch and our hotels.

Winnipeg Hotels
Our base hotel in Winnipeg is the Sheraton Four Points. It is located directly at the airport, so the convenience cannot be beat!

If you would prefer to spend additional time in Winnipeg, we recommend several downtown hotels including The Hotel Fort Garry and The Inn at the Forks. Please give us a call for more information.

VIA Rail (Nov 4-9 Departure Only)
The train is comfortable and offers a dining car and private sleeping accommodations. Each cabin has a private sleeper complete with its own bathroom and large windows for watching the world pass by.

Extensions

Heli-Tour Option: Get an unforgettable “birds-eye-view” of the rugged, remote Churchill countryside – from taiga, tundra and boreal forest.  An optional helicopter flight over the area will provide you with a unique view of the landscape and wildlife.

Flights run across the Hudson Bay shoreline out to the famous Cape Churchill where the largest males tend to congregate waiting for the ice to freeze.  In addition to polar bears, you may also watch caribou, seals and a variety of other wildlife. Tour lengths run 60-minutes and originate from town.

Prices vary according to the length of tour and number of passengers. Cregor Adventures will be happy to provide you with details on the costs of helicopter “safaris,” the length of the trips and what you are likely to see on your visit. Please contact our office for details.
