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.

This beautiful and iconic photo of an Inuit hunter in the far north evokes memories of another time. Time seems to stand still in the Arctic although modern ways are starting to creep in. Still, the lure of this untamed land is the feeling of true free-living and wide open landscapes filled with roaming wildlife. Hopefully, we can protect this last frontier for all future generations!
