Instead of Churchill, Manitoba go to Baffin Island, Nunavut
For the most predictable polar bear sightings in North America, tourists make for Churchill in Manitoba to see the world’s greatest concentration of bears while rolling across the tundra in “custom-built Polar Rovers” (and falling over crowds of their fellow passengers to photograph the animals below). For something that feels more organic and far more thrilling, we’ll opt for a camping trip to the Floe Edge in Nunavut with Canadian operator Black Feather. As the thaw begins and before the full melt, every June, there’s a short window during which you can ride atop skidoo-pulled Inuit sleds out to the edge of the frozen sea ice, where you’ll camp while watching in awe as polar bears stalk seals and narwhals thread their tusks through water bobbing with icebergs.
