Bear Alley Custom Tours
seven and ten day adventures in the sub-arctic
Bear Alley Expeditions offers customized natural and cultural
history tours of the sub-arctic. We have a special focus on sustainability,
ecological integrity, community support and local knowledge. Our
guides live and work in Churchill, Manitoba and provide a unique
viewpoint of life in the polar bear capital of the world. For
this reason, we often integrate local volunteer work and beach
restoration into our tour packages.
tour programs range include four, seven and ten day hiking adventures.
We offer 'hard days and soft nights'. Groups are active and outdoors
for much of the day, getting a hands-on experience that few tour
companies offer. While enjoying a true sub-arctic adventure each
day, we also return to the comfort of dinner and accommodations
name is Polar Bear Alley but polar bears are not the sole focus
of our tour offering but these big white bears are a constant
factor in the sub-arctic summer. While this does give us the opportunity
to present 'I Walked With Polar Bears' certificates, it also requires
all Polar Bear Alley guides to be proficient in polar bear security
and safe travel in polar bear country. Client safety is our prime
responsibility - hiking in polar bear country is an incredible
experience but not being eaten by a polar bear is even better!
The Canadian sub-arctic is the sole focus of our tours - of course,
the sub-arctic has so many different unforgettable things to offer.
With hundreds if not thousands of beluga whales in the Churchill
River on any given summer day, polar bears have tough competition
for Churchill's top tourist attraction. Abundant wildflowers,
fur trade history, migratory birds, arctic animals and ever-changing
Hudson Bay round out the rest of the tour quite well.
on the group's preference, we custom design tours to focus on
northern research, cultural history, arctic wildlife or a mix
of all three. All of our groups have an outdoor component but
was can adapt the level of activity to match the group - some
want to hike 20km per day, others are content with 2-3km. Regardless
of the group, each Polar Bear Alley Expedition promises to be
educational, sustainable and memorable. Our combination of local
guides and local knowledge allow us to share 'the real Churchill'
with each and every visitor.
