CM Travels | Canada | Mother and Cubs 4314w by Michelle Valberg

Capture the unique moments between mother polar bears and their newly emerged youngsters in early spring. Explore one of the largest Polar Bear denning sites few get to experience. Open only to a select few individuals every year. 

To say the experience is moving would be an understatement. 

This is a lodge based experience where you are able to travel around in comfortable tracked heated vans which offer unprecedented access to the denning sites and viewing this special interaction.

Catch an early morning flight to Churchill and enjoy a town tour before heading for lunch at the local restaurant. Then board an evening train to Chesnaye where you will be met by your expedition leader who will transfer you to The Newborn Polar Bear Lodge.
