Polar Bear Photo Safari, 7-8 Days

ITINERARY:

  • DAY 1. ANTICIPATION BUILDS DURING YOUR OVERNIGHT STAY IN WINNIPEG
    Arrive in Winnipeg where you will enjoy a relaxing stay at our choice hotel, The Grand by Lakeview at the Winnipeg Airport. Your winter gear fitting and collection will take place at 5 pm prior to meeting the rest of your group at an orientation dinner hosted by a Churchill Wild representative.
    Includes: dinner
  • DAY 2. THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!
    Arrive in Churchill by air where one of our expert staff will meet you at the airport and provide you with instructions of the morning transfer. You will then be transferred by fixed wing aircraft to Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. This exciting one-hour flight takes you over Wapusk National Park as well as the historic York Factory. Keep a sharp eye en-route for wildlife including the ‘Great Ice Bears’.
    Upon arrival, your hosts will provide a tour of the Lodge and get you settled into your room. A thorough orientation on travelling in polar bear country will be provided prior to any outings. Then it’s time to assemble your cameras, hard drives, and tripods and start shooting.
    Includes: breakfast, lunch, dinner
  • DAY 3 TO 5. NATURE TREKKING, POLAR BEARS AND MAGNIFICENT PHOTOGRAPHY!
    Each morning after a hot breakfast, your guides will outline a plan for the day’s excursions. Note that to maximize photography time and opportunities, your daily schedule may be adjusted. Our Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is a wildly rugged and remote location catering to the photographer willing to spend long hours in the field getting up close and personal, at ground level, with Arctic wildlife. The shoreline location of the lodge is ideal for photographing bears on snow and ice, and on clear nights offers excellent chances for northern lights photography.
    After appetizers and another one of our signature meals, evenings are spent near the fireplace downloading images, sharing the day’s adventures, or taking in an informative lecture or slide show.
    Bedtime is at your leisure and you can rest easy knowing you won’t miss out on anything. Our staff monitor the compound and skies and will rouse you if the aurora or a nocturnal polar bear make an appearance.
    Includes: breakfast, lunch, dinner
  • DAY 6. LAST MINUTE WILDLIFE VIEWING
    After another hearty Lodge breakfast, we will begin air transfers back to Churchill. Have your cameras ready for the return flight as it affords excellent opportunities for great aerial shots.
    Back in Churchill, you’ll spend the day with one of our tour guides exploring the town and surrounding area and learning about its rich history as a seaport and ex-military base. Your tour will include stops such as the Parks Canada exhibit, the Itsanitaq Museum, and the Polar Bear Jail. Along the way, your guide will point out murals that were commissioned in 2016 as part of the SeaWalls mural festival. Before a group dinner, your guide will give you free time to shop for last-minute souvenirs at the unique gift stores in Churchill.
    Your flight south to Winnipeg will take place this evening. Upon arrival, collect your bags, head out of the arrivals doors and back to The Grand Hotel.
    Includes: breakfast, lunch, dinner
  • DAY 7. HOMEWARD BOUND
    After a restful sleep you will pack your bags in preparation for your flight home.
  • NOTE FOR 8 DAY ITINERARY
    The above itinerary reflects a 7-day package as that is the majority of our Nanuk Lodge departures. We are offering a couple departure as an 8-day package. Essentially, the itinerary is the same but as you will have five nights at the Lodge and your days would be numbered slightly different. Day 3-6 are your days at the Lodge, Day 7 is the day you transfer back to Churchill/Winnipeg and Day 8 would be the day you fly home.
