Polar Rovers in Churchill

Purpose built for watching polar bears on the tundra around Canada's Hudson Bay in Manitoba, Polar Rovers combine comfort and space with practicality to ensure the best possible encounters with these magnificent mammals. Giant tyres and a raised open-air viewing platform allows you to come within inches of this powerful predator safely.

Taiga in Finland

Deep in the taiga forest of Finland, on the shores of Lake Lammasjarvi is the ideal base for observing brown bears from special hides. Rarely seen during the day, an overnight stay in a hide is the perfect opportunity to keep vigil for the elusive brown bear under the extended daylight hours of Finland's summer.
