Polar bears bed down in the willows in the fall polar bear season in Churchill to conserve their energy and waning fat reserves. When they are aroused or catch a waft of some unusual smell they will pop up from their slumber ad shelter. Some of these sightings are the most exciting and memorable of a polar bear adventure to Churchill on the Hudson Bay!

Only five months to polar bear season so we all have some time to relax. Especially these polar bears from past seasons. Really great shots of the King of the north!

Churchill Weekly Photos – Igloos

The Toonik Tyme igloo building contest took place yesterday in Iqaluit and Paul Irngaut won first place. The Nunavut Court of Justice Building in Iqaluit was the site of this annual event that highlights one of the special survival skills of the wild north. The frigid cold weather limited the number of participants to only a handful and not many spectators. Hoping for better weather next year! These beautiful photos by Tristen Omik highlight the feel of the event.
