A Polar Bear Travel Experience of a Lifetime
Imagine coming face to face with one of the world’s most majestic and powerful creatures in its natural habitat. This journey takes you to the tundra of northern Manitoba, near the shores of Hudson Bay. Here polar bears roam free, and you’ll experience daily bear viewings with expertly trained local guides. This trip is perfect for anyone who has ever dreamed of viewing polar bears in the wild. Dymond Lake Lodge is Canada’s most exclusive polar bear viewing property, a place where you’re as likely to see the beautiful “Ice Bears” in your camp as you are on guided, informative tundra treks. Along with your hosts, the Reimer family, your guides will regale you with tales of life and adventures in Canada’s Arctic.
