Overview

An official Tundra Buggy® Adventure is the best and safest way to view the majestic polar bear in its natural environment and is an ideal tour option if you are planning your own travel and accommodations in Churchill. Tundra Buggy Day Tours include expert interpretation in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area about the wildlife and the magnificent ecosystems surrounding the subarctic environment of Churchill. You will have the opportunity to explore the open tundra while your driver discusses the effects of tides, currents and ice formation on the polar bear. Wildlife you spot may include polar bears, arctic hare, arctic and red fox, gyrfalcon, ptarmigan and much more. Please note that Tundra Buggy Day Tours take place on a 40-passenger Tundra Buggy® and during peak seasons have a tendency to sell to capacity. We highly recommend booking your Tundra Buggy Day Tour(s) as early as possible.

Hi Mikayla, Thank you for your review. We understand our Tundra Buggy day tours may be quite a different experience than a package tour from another company. We appreciate your candor and comparison. We hope to see you again in Churchill soon! Taylor

We had one of the most incredible experiences on the tundra with Marc as our guide! He was knowledge, friendly, and knew the best places to observe the bears! We saw over 20 bears-it was well worth the cost!

Hi Kate, We do not release our Tundra Buggy day tour dates until later in the year which can make scheduling around hotel availability, and train schedule a bit more difficult. Tour #63 on our website called Churchill Town... More

Hi Anastacia, Each of our Tundra Buggies are outfitted with a flushing toilet, similar to one you'd find in a RV or camping trailer. Thanks Taylor
