The Great Bear Foundation offers unique, small-group, low-impact wildlife-viewing experiences in Churchill, Manitoba on Canada’s Hudson Bay. When you travel with us, you’ll spend your days in the field, watching wildlife like polar bears, arctic and red fox, arctic terns, gyrfalcon and other birdlife, arctic and snowshoe hare, and you’ll explore the tundra, taiga, and beaches surrounding Hudson bay.

Our field courses emphasize learning and conservation, and you’ll learn how to interpret animal behavior to encourage high quality wildlife-viewing and photography experiences with as little impact on the animals and their habitat as possible.

Our Berries, Belugas and Bears summer trip to the Arctic is a family-friendly, small group experience. The trip includes roundtrip economy class train travel to Churchill (from Winnipeg, Canora, or elsewhere on the Winnipeg-Churchill line), accommodations and meals in Churchill, a boat-based whale watching tour, and course tuition. Participants are eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Salish Kootenai College.

Highlights include daily wildlife-viewing, field trips to cultural sites and unique geological features like a palsa field, evening programs on wildlife, photography, local cultures, climate change and conservation, and possibly northern lights!

All proceeds directly benefit bear conservation.
