No visit trip to Churchill is complete without a trip out on the iconic Tundra Buggy. These incredible pieces of machinery are designed to take people out onto the arctic tundra no matter what the conditions. We spent a few hours out on the tundra and had excellent sightings of caribou, snowy owl, a family of arcic foxes and 3 more polar bears.
The tundra buggy really comes into its own in peak polar bear season when visitors can head out onto the snow to watch the bears who wait at the edge of the ice. You can even sleep out in specially designed tundra buggy hotels. Visit in October/November for this experience. We visited in summer for the beluga migration but were also fortunate enough to get excellent polar bear viewing.
