The Tundra Buggy Adventure - Day Tours
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: An official Tundra Buggy® Adventure is the best and safest way to view the majestic polar bear in its natural environment and is an ideal tour option if you are planning your own travel and accommodations in Churchill. Tundra Buggy Day Tours include expert interpretation in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area about the wildlife and the magnificent ecosystems surrounding the subarctic environment of Churchill. You will have the opportunity to explore the open tundra while your driver discusses the effects of tides, currents and ice formation on the polar bear. Wildlife you spot may include polar bears, arctic hare, arctic and red fox, gyrfalcon, ptarmigan and much more. Please note that Tundra Buggy Day Tours take place on a 40-passenger Tundra Buggy® and during peak seasons have a tendency to sell to capacity. We highly recommend booking your Tundra Buggy Day Tour(s) as early as possible.

We traveled to Churchill just prior to official Polar Bears season, early Oct 2012. We also did not want to be with groups nor paying outragous price for seeing polar bears, so we planned our own trip by train, from Seattle. Booking for train and hotel in Churchill was simple with reasonable price. We did not know what to expect in booking for seeing Polar Bears. Counting on seeing Polar Bears raoming around Churchill is not reasonable since Bears Patrol is tight for safety of its citizens and visitors. So, you have to find an outfit to take you to the bear backyards. It is not possible to get there on your own, walking or rental car. We picked Tundra Buggy. The staff was very easy going, not pushy at all, provided info needed and answered our questions to satisfaction...we booked a day before the drive. Pricing is expensive, but not unreasonable since all stuff must be shipped into Churchill. Our driver was more than qualified, friendly, knowledgable....we saw bears, foxes, hares and some other birds...the weather was beautiful...the snacks and lunch were tasty and hefty....including coffee and hot chocolate.

Thanks so much for your review!

We're glad that you enjoyed your time on our Tundra Buggy Adventure and that you had the chance to spend some time with Churchill's polar bears! Although it is common to see bears around town, it is a world apart from being able to see them in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.

Thanks again and happy travels!
