Walk with Polar Bears in the Arctic and enjoy a dog-sled ride with a backdrop of the mystical northern lights

FiveZero’s Polar Bear Safari brings you to the magical town of Churchill, Canada, for an experience you’ll never forget. Nestled between the banks of Hudson Bay and the Churchill River in Northern Manitoba, it is known as the Polar Bear capital of the world, and is one of the best places to view the Northern Lights. Your lodge is situated a short flight north of this quaint town, surrounded only by the Arctic and it’s inhabitants. Wandering Polar Bears walk right up to, and in front of the lodge 24 hours a day, often followed by the snow white arctic foxes scurrying along.

This is a unique experience, where you get to really connect with the king of the ice – all the safaris are done on foot, so you get a much better idea of the true size and power of the bears. You are guided by very experienced rangers who fully understand the bears and their behaviours, and keep you at a safe distance the whole time. When the sun sets, keep your eyes turned towards the heavens, as the magical northern lights display on most nights.

Evenings are spent near the fireplace sharing the day’s adventures, or taking in an informative lecture or slide show. While you’re there don’t forget to do a little dog sledding or heli-tour to make this magical experience complete. Contact our safari specialists to help you plan your dream safari!
