Itinerary at a Glance
Day 1 Arrive Winnipeg
Arriving in Winnipeg today, make your own way to The Grand by Lakeview at Winnipeg Airport. Here you will enjoy a relaxing stay for one night before traveling to the remote Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. At 7pm, Churchill Wild hosts an informative orientation chat where you can meet your fellow travelers over refreshments and anticipate your departure from civilization.
Day 2 Winnipeg to Churchill
Rising early this morning, depart Winnipeg for Churchill on Calm Air International and transfer to a private charter for your one-hour flight to Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. Upon arrival at the lodge, your hosts will provide a tour and show you to your room to get settled. Lunch is served shortly after and you will then be given an orientation regarding your stay in polar bear country. Your first day includes an afternoon of exploring the coastline in search of the "Great Ice Bear." Appetizers and cocktails are served at 6pm and dinner is served at 7pm. During the evening there will be an informative lecture or slide show presentation narrated by one of Churchill Wild's knowledgeable guides or staff. If it is a clear night you may also have a chance to view one of the spectacular Aurora Borealis displays common at this latitude.
Day 3-5 Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge
Over the next few days, breakfast will be served around 8am and your outings will begin at about 9:30am. If there are bears near the lodge your tour may be delayed to take advantage of the photo and observation opportunities. There is always the option available for anyone to stay behind to take photos of the wildlife around the lodge and relax. The average day includes morning and afternoon excursions with lunch served either at the lodge or out on the trail.
Each day, appetizers and cocktails are served at 6pm and dinner is served at 7pm. In the evenings there will be an informative lecture, slideshow presentation or informal visiting. Churchill Wild staff will monitor Aurora Borealis after dark if conditions are optimal and will provide a gentle wake-up call to ensure you don't miss any opportunities to witness and photograph this spectacular Arctic phenomenon.
Day 6 Churchill to Winnipeg
After breakfast today you will depart on your flight back to Churchill. Once there, a representative will store your luggage so you can explore the town's shops and exhibits for the rest of the day. In the evening you will depart on your flight to Winnipeg, where on arrival you will collect your bags, head out of the arrival doors and look to your right. The Grand Winnipeg Airport Hotel is located across the way and is just a two-minute walk.

Today you will make your own way to the airport and fly home on your own travel arrangements, marking the end of your adventure.
