Do You Want to Walk with Polar Bears?

 

I walked with Polar Bears with Churchill Wild at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. It was literally one of the best bucket list adventures I have ever experienced. Please enjoy my videos to see what our days were like riding the Arctic Rhino and walking with wild animals.

VIDEO: Do You Want to Walk with Polar Bears?

Walking with the polar bears at Nanuk Polar Bear lodge is one of the most amazing things I have ever done. It only works because of the trusted, experienced and talented guides, Andy, Emri and Kevin who literally talk to the animals. We have seen about a dozen polar bears and wolves. We traveled by arctic rhino which looks like a moon rover.
It has been so incredible.
If you are looking for a really different experience and an adventure bucket list experience in the vast expanse of the outdoors were there are no roads, no traffic lights and no other people. This is an exciting next adventure for you to explore.
I loved it!

After traveling to 101 countries, walking with the polar bears with Churchill Wild was one of the most amazing bucket list experiences of my life! The bear in this video was across the river and then walked closer and closer to use! It was incredible to be so close. Churchill Wild wants you to have a top experience and safety of the animals and of the guests is of the highest importance. Our three guides were very talented and we saw so many creatures! Our sightings included many wolves, polar bears, polar bear cubs and we even stopped among the trees for hot cocoa, coffee and tea!
Back at the lodge, meals are served family style and there are plenty of freshly baked treats. I loved it! Thank you Churchill Wild. This video is from September 2, 2018
