Experience Canada's North And The Amazing Polar Bear Migration

This is an epic train journey over tundra and permafrost to witness the annual migration of polar bears to the edge of Hudsons Bay near the small community of Churchill, Manitoba. Book early for this one because there are limited departures in the busy polar bear season which lasts for just six weeks. Travel Canada by train to see polar bears from early October to mid-November.
