Frequently called "Lords of the Arctic”, these spectacular animals are huge. Male polar bears can grow to more than 600 kg (1,320 lbs) and stand 3.05 metres (10 feet) tall. But don’t let their massive size fool you – these white bears can move with surprising speed and agility. With a highly acute sense of smell, they are also skilled hunters that can pick up a scent from over 30 kilometers away, and can detect the presence of seals under three feet of snow and ice.
There are a variety of tour options available that allow you to safely view polar bears during your visit to Churchill. We always recommend finding a knowledgeable guide or bear monitor for your outdoor adventures in Churchill.
