Day 1 Winnipeg, Manitoba

Arrive in Winnipeg, Manitoba and transfer to the Four Points Sheraton Hotel a short walk from the airport. You will be met by your Expedition Leader and the rest of the group of only 6 persons for a welcome dinner.

Day 2 Fly to Churchill, Manitoba

Meet in the morning for your flight to Churchill. On your arrival in Churchill have an opportunity to explore while you wait for your 7:30pm train departure for Chesnaye. The train ride is approximately 2 hours in duration until you reach the train stop at Chesnaye. At Chesnaye, disembark and transfer to waiting tracked vehicles for the 30min ride to the Lodge. You should arrive at the Lodge around 10pm.

Day 3-8 Polar Bear Scouting

Daily Sorties for mother polar bears and newborn cubs.

After 7am breakfasts, depart around 8:30 daily in the heated tracked vehicles in search of polar bear dens. Scouts will go ahead and radio the vans where the locations of the dens are. In some cases, go to where dens are already known to be, and on other days a new den could be found. Patience will be rewarded with anywhere from 1 to 3 newly born cubs with their mother polar bear at the mouth of a den. After dinner, take a peek at the night sky and see if the shimmering northern lights have made an appearance above the trees.

Day 9 Depart for home

Your week with mother and newborn cubs comes to an end. Leave early in the morning for the train ride back to Churchill, and onwards with an afternoon flight to Winnipeg.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
