Adventurer Hotel-Based Packages

The Adventurer polar bear tour programs are our most economical tour option. If all you want is a hotel room and access to premier bear viewing, this is the tour for you. Transportation from Winnipeg, hotel accommodations in Churchill and full day Tundra Buggy Adventures are included in all of the Adventurer Tours. These tours are unescorted but offer excellent interpretation by your Tundra Buggy driver/guides.

Adventurer Tundra Buggy Lodge Packages

For those who would like a more in-depth experience with the bears, we offer the Tundra Buggy Lodge at Polar Bear Point, some 25 miles east of Churchill. Unlike the hotel-based tours, these trips are based in our camp near the shores of Hudson Bay. The Tundra Buggy Lodge is a specially-designed facility—five large, modular units on huge tires, linked together like a train but with a larger-scale interior. Between each unit and at each end, are open-air platforms which provide safe viewing and photography areas. Travelers can choose packages ranging from 1-3 nights at the Tundra Buggy Lodge. Days are spent traveling aboard a Tundra Buggy, watching the bears!

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

 

 
Tundra-camp-6A safe haven from the bears and an excellent base for wildlife observation, the warm and casual Tundra Buggy Lodge provides more time for viewing and photographing than our hotel-based trips. Imagine watching the bears day or night, from inside or out, and, on clear nights, under the ghostly northern lights! In addition, a Tundra Buggy is available for a full day excursion into the same observation areas that our other tours explore. In the evening enjoy relaxation, excellent meals and informal talks, slide shows, videos, and bear stories in the lounge. The proximity and viewing of the bears is exceptional, and the accommodations make even the barren tundra comfortable.
