Come experience the very best of polar bear viewing. Traveling on a Tundra Buggy is the most comfortable and safe way to experience a polar bear tour in the bears' natural environment. During October or November the bears are slowly congregating along the coast of the Hudson Bay in Manitoba Canada.


An excellent base for wildlife observation, the warm and casual Tundra Buggy Lodge provides more time for viewing and photographing than any hotel-based trip. Imagine watching the bears day and night, from inside or out. In the evening, relax and enjoy excellent meals and informal talks, slide shows (traditional and digital), videos, and bear-lore in the lounge. On clear nights at the Lodge, you seem close enough to the stunning northern lights to reach out and touch them!
