Tundra Buggy Lodge at Polar Bear Point is a mobile lodge in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area, home to the largest concentration of polar bears in Churchill. Enjoy the polar bears, day or night, as their lives unfold before your eyes. On clear nights you may be treated to the magical dance of the Northern Lights. Evenings at the lodge can be as memorable as the days, with a chance to to get to know other guests and and swap tales. Enjoy presentations from Polar Bears International Species Experts, world-renowned polar bear researchers and scientists. Daily Tundra Buggy excursions allow you to explore the area beyond the lodge. Guests at the lodge will stay in one of two bunkhouses containing shared bathrooms and showers, have opportunities to mingle with fellow guests in the lounge unit and enjoy delicious meals in the dining unit. The maximum number of guests on each tour is 20 people, so whilst you will have chance to make new friends, there will also be plenty of space for you to view the bears and enjoy the experience.
The best way to experience an intimate encounter with a wild polar bear is on an authentic Tundra Buggy. All of the Tundra Buggies are furnished with dual-pane frost-free windows and contain propane heating systems that closely resemble a cosy fireplace, with real flame (behind glass). Each day, depart early and board the world famous Tundra Buggies looking for polar bears and other wildlife out on the tundra. You will enjoy picnic style lunches and refreshments while you are bear watching. (JV)
"After a night in Winnipeg and armed with our warm weather gear we took a small aircraft way up north to the Polar Bear capital of Churchill on the Hudson Bay. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere…and I guess that’s about right! We had a tour of the museum which had some quirky exhibits including some of the oldest Inuit carvings in the world and took a trip to the Polar Bear Jail to learn about how the locals live safely alongside these beautiful bears. We had a full day out on a Tundra Buggy – a specially made truck that is high enough so that you’re safe from the Polar Bears whilst giving you great views and the opportunity to get close enough to the bears for some fantastic photo opportunities. We were lucky enough to spot an artic fox as well as plenty of birds.
Staying overnight in the Tundra Lodge was something I’ll never forget. It’s not exactly the Ritz but is perfectly comfortable for one night and you can visit the little pub and bakery and meet the friendly locals. You really can’t beat the feeling of being out there on the tundra amongst all the polar bears – it really is an amazing experience. We got to see a massive bear when we were just about to eat dinner – wow!"
