This was a great opportunity to see polar bears. We had the good fortune of seeing four the day we went in August. The guide, Jim, had great information and was very enthusiastic. The ride is rough...so be prepared for that. Also, dress warmly. The buggy can't approach the bears, so a good lens on your camera makes for a... More

Wow, wow, wow, we loved the tundra buggy. Not only did we get a close encounter with a polar bear but our guides intrigued us with the many other wildlife encounters. We saw 2 arctic foxes, an arctic hare and of course numerous birds: tundra swans, arctic terns and a merlin. The tour into the tundra with the Tundra buggy... More

While not an easy or smooth ride, this experience was exceptional. To be able to see the tundra and polar bears from just a few feet away was breathtaking! Our naturalist Jim was informative and funny. Great lunch on board provided by Gypsy's. A must do on everyone's bucket list!

This was a fantastic trip out into the wilderness outside Churchill. We got 2 really good sightings of polar bears. Jim, our guide, was full of information and jokes. Lunch was really good.

Jim was our guide on a 6 hour tour. He was very well-informed about the landscape, plants, birds, and the bears. It was not yet "bear season" but he searched and did find some and went out of his way to get as near as was responsibly possible. He did his best to create photo opportunities. He also quite diplomatically... More

There is no better feeling than being somewhere so remote, having a knowledgable guide by your side and sharing the experience with other wildlife enthusiasts. We sighted a polar bear a few meters from our Tundra Buggy even though we visited Churchill in July but we also saw numerous amounts of birds and I felt that I learnt a lot... More

My wife and I booked the Tundra Buggy tour through Frontiers North in early July 2015. Upon arrival to Churchill, there was a slight mix up with the tour times we had booked with the agent from the 1-800 number, but after speaking with Sue in Churchill, she pulled some strings to accommodate our trip in the timeslot previously agreed....

I had to cancel a day tour due to unforeseen circumstances. They were very understanding and promptly refunded. I would book again with this company. Although didn't get to go, they were easy to do business with.

We had the driver/guide Neil who was fantastic he went out of his way to ensure that the entire buggy was enjoying themselves. Top marks for buggy love!!! We had a very young child on board... More
