We went to Churchill to see the polar bears and dog sled. We were welcomed by Jen, Gerald,Tina,Nathan,Amy and Aaron. What a fabulous place to stay. It's homely warm and welcoming. Everywhere is easy walking distance as Churchill isn't that big. The breakfasts at Bluesky are amazing. Jen served up yoghurt with hand picked wild cranberries and homemade granola. Yummy. This was followed by something different everyday, sausage, bacon, eggs and toast and homemade preserves or wild rice and eggs. We were lucky enough to have an evening meal there of moose. This was a first for us and we really enjoyed it. Nothing is too much trouble for Jen and Gerald. We were lucky enough to go dog sledding with Gerald. He truly loves the dogs and they have a no cull policy. This is unusual but an ethical one. We had a fabulous time and our only regret is we couldn't do another. Gerald runs Bluesky expeditions for the sledding. We'd definitely recommend this to anyone. It was fabulous and a holiday to remember. We missed the Aurora Borealis by one night. This gives us an excuse to return again and maybe see the beluga whales.
We saw approximately 15 polar bears on our trip with Tundra Buggy. We booked with Frontiers North and they were really helpful.
Whilst you're there heed the advice given. Polar bears do wander into town. Be careful and be bear aware and you'll have a wonderful time where the memories last a lifetime.
