Join me on a once in a life time polar bear adventure in Churchill, Manitoba aka “ Polar Bear Town”.   Encounter polar bears, arctic fox, red fox, snowy owls,Ptarmigan and more.  Fred will guide you on ground-level walking tours through the polar bear inhabited region.  Small group excursions allow emerging and experienced photographers to capture bears in their natural environment, up close and personal.


The trip starts with a flight from Winnipeg to Churchill. Once you are settled in to your hotel, the fun begins. Each day you will explore the amazing Hudson Bay coastline observing the majestic Polar Bear up close as they migrate toward the coast.  

We allow you to experience polar bears close up at ground level traveling in 4x4 trucks. Participants can photograph the bears from the safety of the truck or at ground level where a guide monitor bears and guests.

Prepare to be wowed!  Whether you are a aspiring photographer, pro-photographer or film crew, this is a trip you don’t want to miss.
