Day 1 : Fly to Canada

Our ultimate arctic adventure begins with a flight to scenic Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba. Known as “The Gateway to the West,” this vibrant multicultural city offers many fascinating attractions and restaurants and will be our home for the next two nights.

Day 2 : Discover Winnipeg

After enjoying a delicious included breakfast, we’ll discover Winnipeg’s rich, historic past on a city tour. Learn about St. Boniface Basilica, Winnipeg’s French Quarter, and the Exchange District, a National Historic Site home to one of North America’s finest collections of turn-of-the-last century architecture. We’ll also visit The Forks, home to year-round shopping, dining, entertainment and 6,000 years of history.

Explore the Assiniboine Park Zoo where we experience the world’s most comprehensive Northern species exhibit Journey to Churchill. This 10-acre site features cold-climate species such as Arctic fox and muskox. Next, watch Northern Lights dance around the 360-degree domed Aurora Borealis Theatre.

After lunch, visit the Manitoba Museum for a dose of natural history and human heritage.

Later we get to know our fellow travelers at a special Holiday Vacations Welcome Dinner.

We’ll enjoy a tour of Churchill including Cape Merry, a stone battery designed to protect the area; the Port of Churchill, Canada’s only arctic seaport; and the Manitoba Conservation’s Polar Bear Holding Facility, home to many of the cubs and full-size bears from the area that are in need of extra attention.

After an included lunch we check-in to our hotel for a three-night stay.

Continue to the Churchill Eskimo Museum, also known as the Itsanitaq Museum, featuring one of the finest collections of Inuit artifacts and carvings in the world.

Day 4 : Polar Bear Adventure

An amazing day is in store for you as your Polar Bear Adventure truly begins! Board tundra buggies in search of the "Kings of the Arctic" in addition to keeping our eyes open for the Arctic Fox and Snowy Owl. Churchill is one of the few areas where polar bears can be observed in the wild. Each fall, the world’s greatest concentrations of polar bears convene on the edge of Hudson Bay, waiting for the ice to form which marks the beginning of their hunting season.

Upon our return, have dinner and take in a presentation about Churchill’s history, wildlife, and the lifestyle of its residents.

Day 5 : Dog Sled Excursion

Find your wild side today as we go on an exciting dog sledding excursion in Churchill’s boreal forest. Learn about the history associated with dog sledding in Northern Canada, then enjoy an exhilarating ride behind a strong team of huskies on a custom-made sled.

This afternoon, visit the Parks Canada Interpretive Centre to take in impressive collections from the native Dorset people who inhabited the area between 1,000 and 3,000 B.C.
