At Dymond Lake on the edge of Hudson Bay there is a magic which touched my soul. I will never forget it.

Our Great Ice Bear adventure takes place in prime polar bear season in October and November. This is the time when polar bears congregate in large numbers on the coast of the Hudson Bay as they wait for the Bay to freeze so that they can begin their annual hunt.
Update: We have added a complimentary dog sled tour to the Great Ice Bear Adventure departure that runs from Nov. 10-16. This two-and-a-half hour evening tour will include a kennel introduction to dog sledding and, after your adrenaline-filled mushing adventure, enjoy hot chocolate and bannock in the tepee. Keep your eyes peeled for the northern lights!
Great Ice Bear is undoubtedly the most diverse and holistic fall wildlife viewing package offered anywhere in the world for wildlife viewers. It combines four days at our wilderness lodge where many of the Arctic’s most famous residents are seen and photographed on foot or from the Lodge, with one day in Churchill on a buggy tour.
The following pages will take you through the adventure’s key features. Please look on the left side panel for our rates, dates, itineraries and more details about this adventure safari!

Our Guests Say It Best!
It was amazing! I had really high expectations and the experience lived up to them. All of the staff were very friendly and the logistics were well coordinated – everything went very smoothly. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and really added to our experience. I’m so glad I opted for Churchill Wild rather than the typical polar buggy tour. Seeing a polar bear on foot was unforgettable!
