These three polar bear shots come to us from Great White Bear Tours in Churchill! Polar bears are roaming the tundra and ready to wait it out until polar bear season starts in October. Churchill in the summer is one of the most unique places to experience nature on the planet. Add in the thrill of seeing polar bears without the throngs of travelers in polar bear season and the opportunity to discover the wonders of Arctic nature.

 

Churchill Photo of the Week – Hello Bear

This polar bear wandered right up to this front door of a housing building in Churchill. Benjamin Oman took this shot while the bear was contemplating its next move. Churchill is a wild town and residents and visitors need to always be aware, even more in summer months when bears tend to move around town and people often let their guard down. Polar Bear Alert will relocate the bear as they do in polar bear season. Give them a call if you see a bear near or in town at   204-675-2327!

Polar Bear Season Excitement

We’re just starting to get the itch for Churchill’s polar bear season even though Churchill Summer season has not even started as of yet. And, although there’s a chance to see the King of the North in the summer months, once October and November roll around, polar bears rule the land in and around Churchill. With that yearning tugging at our souls, we thought it would be fun to publish some of the best images from polar bear seasons of the past. These should inspire all to venture to the Polar Bear Capital of the World, Churchill, Manitoba to see these incredible animals!

Until then, stay posted for news and updates from Churchill toward the end of the month. We cannot wait to see what this summer reveals around Churchill! It should be another wild season with unexpected happenings in the far north.

Polar bear season is six months away but we can’t help ourselves with these awesome images of the King of the North.

If you have not made it to Churchill yet to see these incredible beauties, find a way to make it there. We will bring you all the exciting news and images from next polar bear season when it arrives. In the meanwhile stay informed on Churchill summer season which will begin in late June and run through mid – August. There should be all kinds of surprises heading your way!

Churchill Sunday Photo – Motherhood

The photo titled Motherhood was taken in March 2016 by Daisy Gilardini. It was selected as the grand prize winner out of 20,000 submissions in an international photo contest and was on display for a year at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington , DC. After another awesome polar bear season in Churchill and the return of train service to the outpost on the Hudson Bay, this image captures the positive feeling of the people and vibe in Churchill. Looking forward to this good fortune continuing into the winter and beyond.
