Accommodations for our Conservation Polar Bear Adventures

The Tundra Buggy Lodge

A unique and immersive experience for our guests, where, if the conditions are right, you may awake to polar bears outside your window and fall asleep with the northern lights dancing above!

Each Fall, for the last 20+ years, the Tundra Buggy Lodge has been transported out and assembled about 25 miles east of Churchill on Polar Bear Point. Measuring 100 meters from end to end, the Tundra buggy Lodge 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 (complete with shared bathrooms and shower facilities), a lounge (with skylights and a rooftop viewing platform), dining room and kitchen, as well as a separate module which houses supplies, staff accommodations and the camp’s power station. Between each unit, and at each end, are open-air platforms that provide safe viewing and photographing areas.

Each of the two sleeping modules in the Tundra Buggy Lodge is made up of 10 upper and 10 lower, twin-sized berths (74.5 in. long by 38.5 in. wide.) Each berth includes a window, a reading light, four electrical outlets, a sound-dampening curtain for privacy, bedding (including a warm, Hudson Bay blanket), and towels. In addition, each berth is equipped with a thermostat, allowing our guests to control their individual berth’s temperature for their own comfort.

Each sleeping module has three bathrooms, two of which have showers.

After a great day on the tundra viewing Polar Bears and other wildlife, you will enjoy the comfort of  our Tundra Buggy Lodge lounge –  the perfect place to relax and socialize, swapping stories or sharing images with your fellow adventurers. Before dinner, enjoy a glass of wine and appetizers. After dinner, enjoy presentations by our staff and wildlife experts, including researchers from Polar Bears International. The lounge is equipped with WiFi capability, a multi-touch Smart Board, and an audio system.

Perhaps the most unique feature, and our favorite, are the panoramic views from the floor to ceiling windows and a 360° view from the roof-top viewing deck. Perfect for wildlife viewing and an unobstructed view of the Northern Lights!

You’ll find our chef cooking up delicious regional cuisine and hearty home-cooked favorites, in the Tundra Buggy Lodge dining hall. You’ll enjoy the wonderful food and camaraderie of your fellow travelers in the Tundra Buggy dining hall.

Hot and cold cereals, muffins, fruit, toast, pancakes and eggs are typical breakfast fare. Lunch will be served on the Tundra Buggy picnic-style, with soup and sandwiches. For dinner you may enjoy anything from chicken to bison lasagna, to Arctic char (a regional favorite). Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juices are available throughout the day.

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.

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

Town of Churchill Hotel

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.)

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 and the Tundra Inn.

Winnipeg Hotel

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.
