Polar Bears Express
Catch the rail to Churchill, Manitoba

View Polar Bear in the wild, a special treat for the family.Polar Bear Express...  Come late September, catch the Hudson Bay line of VIA Rail Canada in Winnipeg and take the 1,050 mile trek through scenic landscapes coupled with magnificent fall colors to Churchill, Manitoba--polar bear capitol of the world.  
    Hundreds of polar bear summer along Hudson Bay’s southern shore, hunting for seals and fish and making maternity dens near Churchill.  View them best in October before the winter freeze as they gather in the few remaining open waters around Churchill.

    International Wildlife Adventures and Churchill Nature Tours offer Polar Bear Tours.
     For a truly off the beaten path adventure, arrange with VIA Rail, custom drop-off and pickup points along the many routes through Canada’s wilderness. Also, VIA will carry bulky outdoor equipment, from bikes to canoes.
