The following itinerary details the Polar Bear Migration Fly-In Safari. Please do contact us for more information about this amazing voyage.
Spend the night in a boutique hotel across from the Winnipeg airport.
Fly from Winnipeg to Churchill, Manitoba. On arrival, transfer to a private charter aircraft waiting to whisk you away to our Polar Bear Cabins. During the 45-50 minute flight along the west coast of Hudson Bay aerial landscape photography maybe possible. A lucky few may even get a chance to view and photograph Arctic wildlife from above. Our Polar Bear Cabins are strategically placed in “polar bear alley” for reliable polar bear encounters.
Spend these days observing polar bears and other Arctic wildlife including; Arctic hare, Arctic fox, pine martens, Willow Ptarmigan, Snowy Owls, Gyrfalcons and possibly even wolverines in the wild, and admiring stunning natural landscapes and sunsets.
Set your tripod up inside the protective, unobtrusive electric fence that surrounds the camp. In the company of local guides and staff, wait for the perfect close-up of the polar bears that wander by.
Safely led by our Inuit guides, head out on short walks outside the perimeter of the camp fence. Often polar bears are friendly, in good spirits, and disinterested in humans. From time to time, there will be a curious one who approaches us. Our local guides have lived among polar bears for generations and know their behaviour well. Following their guidance provides the most authentic and intimate polar bear moments available, and ultimately ensures the safety of our guests and the safety of polar bears.
Each evening after sunset await the unforgettable display of the Northern Lights – weather conditions permitting.
Capture a few last shots in the morning before flying back to Churchill on the charter flight. Transfer planes in Churchill for the flight to Winnipeg. Spend the night in the Winnipeg hotel near the airport before connecting with your international flight back home.
There will be numerous opportunities to photograph and capture truly wonderful moments. From multimedia presentations to group workshops on the outer decks or in a Zodiac, our on board photographer will offer advice and instruction.
