Accommodations

The most rewarding way to experience the polar bears of Churchill is to immerse yourself in their environment; from  the moment you wake up, throughout the day and into the endless winter nights. The best way to accomplish this is a stay at our world famous Tundra Buggy Lodge.

Each Fall for the last 20+ years, the Lodge has been transported out and assembled about 25 miles east of Churchill, near the shores of the Hudson Bay, the best location for ’round the clock’ bear viewing.

The Tundra Buggy Lodge (100 meters from end to end) is a specially designed facility – comprised of five large, modular units on huge tires, linked together like a train.

The five units consist of two sleeping modules (housing 18 and 20 guests respectively) with shared bathrooms and shower facilities, a lounge module, a dining module and a module which houses supplies and the camp’s power station. Between each unit and at each end are open air platforms which provide safe viewing and photography areas.

An excellent base for observing the polar bears and other wildlife, the warm and casual Tundra Buggy Lodge provides more time for viewing and photographing.

While our guests who prefer to stay in a Churchill-based hotel are transferred from town to the Wildlife Management Area in which our Lodge is situated, Lodge guests have a chance to wake-up and get going right in the bear’s playground. When Lodge-guests awake, and if the conditions are right, we often experience polar bears emerging from their snow blankets, tucked gently around them during the night by Mother Nature.

During the day, a Tundra Buggy will take you for excursions into the same observation areas as our other tours. At night, enjoy informal talks, slide shows, videos and stories about the “bear that got away!”

And on clear nights, you might even experience the magic of the Northern Lights dancing across the sky as you fall asleep in your bunk.

A stay at the Tundra Buggy Lodge is truly an unforgettable experience!

Winnipeg Hotels
Our base hotel in Winnipeg is the Sheraton Four Points. It is located 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.

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.

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.
