Visit Polar Bears On The Tundra Along Hudson Bay
Summer's heat is always welcome at first, but it can become oppressive; by mid to late August, you're probably more than ready make your escape from the heat and the humidity and take a vacation somewhere a little cooler. If it's cool you're after, then here are three words you're going to love – Canadian polar bears!
With average July and August highs hovering just below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, the Hudson Bay, Manitoba region is as welcome as a cool breeze on a hot summer's day. A visit to the Hudson Bay region in summer offers refreshingly cool weather and the opportunity to see Canada's famous polar bears and other Canadian wildlife up close and personal in the ruggedly beautiful tundra and taiga landscapes of the Hudson Bay, MB coast. If you'd like to give your air conditioner a break this summer and see Canada's favorite carnivores at close range, Canada Polar Bears can help you choose Canadian vacations which make lifelong memories.
Your summer Canadian polar bear retreat begins at Manitoba's famous Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. You can only reach the lodge by plane and the flight gives you a bird's eye perspective on the Hudson Bay's polar bear habitat; be sure to bring a camera since you'll certainly want to take lots of pictures now and later on.
You can familiarize yourself with the terrain after your arrival in the early afternoon. After dinner, you'll spend your first night at the Polar Bear Lodge learning about Canada's polar bears and other wildlife of the Hudson Bay, Manitoba region with lectures and video presentations. If the weather permits and there are clear skies, you may be treated to the natural spectacle of the Northern Lights! This is a treat which would be worth a visit to Canada in its own right and is certainly a welcome addition to your Canadian polar bear trip.
After breakfast, you can take ATV excursions to the Hudson Bay's tidal flats. You may see polar bears as you explore the landscape; even if you decide to skip the ride, polar bears are frequent visitors to the lodge as well! It's not uncommon to see several polar bears just over the lodge's fence on any given day.
There are all day polar bear photography trips, allowing you to get close enough to take incredible photos of these majestic animals. You may well be able to experience the unforgettable sight of polar bear cubs at play on these outings, as well as encountering other tundra wildlife including moose, fox and Canadian waterfowl – and in the evenings, you can marvel at the Northern Lights! This is a Canadian vacation which always ends sooner than you like; but Canadian Polar Bears can help book your next summer vacation to the tundra of the Hudson Bay, Manitoba - home of the polar bear.

Hi, I'm Kirsten!
“The glacial beauty of Moraine Lake in the Rockies first lured me to Canada, but it's the charm of Vancouver that has kept me here! Known as the modern ‘City of Glass’ it's surrounded by a stunning natural environment of ocean and mountains. This results in my perfect day: a morning of watching seaplanes take off from the harbour, and an afternoon to meet the resident grizzly bears on Grouse Mountain.”
Hi, I'm Anjuli!
“Getting on horseback and roaming the open meadows and birch forests with my dog at my side is the perfect quintessential Canadian getaway! Old homesteads and deserted farms, wildlife and horses roaming the fields will get you thinking you’re a cowboy (or girl!) in the Old West. It's totally worth getting up at the crack of dawn to witness the horses being driven in from the meadows.”
Hi, I'm Sarah!
“Toronto is an exciting and lively city! I visit every summer and love to explore the different neighbourhoods for samples of food and people watching. Taking in the old brick buildings and beautiful murals in Kensington Market, or the view of the entire city from the CN Tower – it's all a treat to experience and you never know what to expect while wandering the streets in a big city!”
Hi, I'm Natalie!
“I am completely smitten with the Maritimes and love how easy it is to cover New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI in one trip. The drive is half of the fun, with stunning seascapes and the amazing Confederation Bridge! The red sand and warm water at all of PEI's beaches completely captivated me. And of course, no PEI visit is complete without tasting some locally-made ice cream and freshly caught mussels!”
Hi, I'm Angie!
“I love the West Coast! I moved here from Ontario years ago but am still in awe of the mountains and ocean. I commute to work from an island and am lucky enough to get to enjoy the natural beauty of the West Coast on a daily basis. Sometimes we're even greeted by whales or dolphins as we boat in! We're close to world-class ski mountains, beautiful city of Vancouver, and are just a short ferry ride away from Vancouver Island.”
Hi, I'm Greg!
“I am in love with our nation's capital, Ottawa. The city has many of its best sights within walking distance of each other. In the centre of it all are the inspiring gothic style parliament buildings, just steps away from the vibrant ByWard Market. And in what other city can you ice skate to work?! The Rideau Canal is a marvel that I will always remember.”
