Polar Bear Season Begins

Another polar bear season has commenced in Churchill and we cannot be more excited to bring you all the news from the great white north. Great White Bear Tours, partner with Natural Habitat Adventures in providing travelers a treasured custom experience, is a leader in polar rover journeys to view polar bears. Owner and fabricator of these amazing vehicles, Don Walkoski, captured these two polar bear images recently out in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area. What a contrast of two worlds, one without and one with the snow that will blanket the region until spring comes. In the next six weeks, we will bring you the news and photo highlights from Churchill! 

Visions of the North

Here are six stunning images from the north country in the Arctic. From polar bears to permafrost to unreal sunsets, the Arctic provides exhilarating experiences for all captured in photos forever. The diversity portrayed is dynamic and truly unique to that region. Similar to the wild feel of Churchill, as we travel further north the surprises are never-ending and unpredictable. Light plays such a role in these images and each one has some aspect that distinguishes it from others. Looking forward to discovering more incredible shots in the coming months. Enjoy!

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.

 

Three Arctic Images

 

 

 

These three photos from the far north highlight the vastness and mystery of the Arctic and the smallness of a human within the endless landscape.Solitude and quietness are aspects of this land that endure through the ages. This is what draws so many to this magical place…the feeling of being alone and away from all the distractions of feeling and thought.

Churchill is the gateway to the Arctic with the iconic wildlife symbols of this region in the mighty polar bears and ethereal beluga whales gliding effortlessly through the frigid waters of the Hudson Bay. The empty spaces are highlighted with flashes of other wildlife such as migrating birds and Arctic and Red foxes, insects and boreal chorus frogs all softened with an amazing myriad of wildflowers throughout the short summer season. There truly is no place other like the Arctic and sub – Arctic…another world of treasures to be discovered!
