Spent time on the tundra with Natural Habitat and Great White Bear Tours. The entire experience was fantastic. The tour guide and driver were wonderful, fonts of knowledge that they were excited about sharing with us. No question was too minor. The polar rover was comfortable and roomy. Everyone had a window seat. The food was great as well. We... More

We booked our trip with Nat Hab because they take 15 people in a Polar Rover that probably seats 30.What a good decision. Great White Bear Tours were extremely professional in their vehicles, their driver, their food and drink and the overall experience of finding bears and watching them in the wild. We saw bears "fighting", sleeping , one running... More

Most folks who visit Churchill for Polar Bear season, Sept/Oct, will go out on one of the Tundra bus tours. We chose Great White Bear tours and were very happy with our choice. Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable bus/buggy. Good bear sightings. The basis of the day out is...you spend a day in a "lifted" bus. 10 ft off the ground,... More

We spent three days on the tundra with Natural Habitat and Great While Bear Tours. Everything was extremely well organized, from the Irish hot chocolate to the bear viewing. The driver, tour guide, and professional photographer all enhanced the experience of viewing these incredible creatures close up. The emphasis was not simply on seeing the polar bears, but looking for... More

We booked our trip through Natural Habitat Adventures. They booked the Churchill Inn for our hotel and Great White Bears for our tundra tour. Bill, our driver, did an excellent job of maneuvering around the tundra to ensure we had many opportunities for bear watching. He also served excellent lunches on the rover. Weather cooperated and therefore we saw numerous... More

I have taken six trips with Natural Habitat Adventures, and their polar bear trip with Great White Bear Tours exceeded even their high standard. I took the Photo Tour. We stayed in town and spent three whole days in the Polar Rover plus two half days in a bus in Churchill and vicinity. From the first afternoon, when we saw... More

Great White Bear Tours knows how to put on a show! Twenty hours on the tundra in a Polar Rover gave us a fantastic up close viewing of many polar bears. Everyone had plenty of room to see these magnificent creatures in warmth and comfort. Our capable driver and knowledgable guide knew where to find the bears so no one... More

A lot of people named their review something similar, and it's with good reason. Staying on the Tundra with Natural Habitat Adventures at the Great White Bear Lodge is an incomparable experience. Everyone was so attentive, thoughtful and genuinely nice. Paul, the lodge manager made sure to give me extra hot water bottles and an extra blanket because I'm always... More
