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

If you ever get a chance to visit churchill you MUST go out and try to see the polar bears! This was an AMAZING trip! It was much more then I expected. Churchill is not an easy place to get to but sooooo worth it. We flew in early in the morning, were transported from the airport to the buggy,... More

This buggy trip was booked by Churchill Wild at the end of their Dymond Lake, Great Ice Bear Adventure and what a wonderful end to the trip. Everything worked like clockwork and we saw so many bears, it was amazing. We only had 16 people on our buggy so there was plenty of room, the other buggies seemed to more... More

The Churchill Polar Bear Adventure was by far the best tour we have ever done. The Churchill people are so welcoming. The accomodation at the Tundra Inn was warm and comfortable. Frontiers North Adventures are a great bunch of people and were very helpful to us during our two day stay in Churchill. As we missed a day on the... More

The day we spent on the Tundra Buggy gave us a different perspective on the bears than we obtained at Dymond Lodge. Could not recommend enough.

Being in a tundra buggy isn't as serene as hiking on the coast of Hudson's Bay with guides, but the buggies can drive to where the bears are waiting for the ice to freeze first, so you are likely to see lots of them.

We made a longer tour through Canada and we crowned it with two days of Tundra Buggy Tour. We have seen so many bears that we could not count them, and the credit of this surely belongs to Kevin Burke, our guide. Kevin has been guiding people through the tundra for around 30 years, works with universities on several polar... More

The last part of our Churchill Wild experience - just the 16 of us in a 40 seat buggy so everyone could see. Mark our driver was excellent at reading bear behaviour patterns and we got some superb photos of the 12 bears including a mother and cub.

As part of a larger tour, we had two days on Tundra Buggy Tours with Kevin as our driver/guide. They far exceeded our expectations. We saw so many bears that I lost count. The Tundra Buggy is a very comfortable vehicle - it holds 40 people and we had 32 on board and there was lots of room to move... More
