Polar Bear Watching at Dymond Lake Lodge | Great Ice Bear Tour

Holiday Duration: 6 Nights

"The holiday you arranged for us was great"

The holiday you arranged for us was great and we really appreciate all the work you did before we actually booked anything. When we were in Canada it became clear that your advice was sound and that you had prevented us from making a few mistakes in what thought we wanted to do, so thanks for that too!
In terms of the detail, we found that you had got the perfect balance between travelling between bases and sightseeing. The distances were never too long and the time spent in each location, although it ranged from one to four days, was just enough for us to see all we wanted but without rushing. So although we drove over 2000 miles, spent a day on a ferry and stayed in seven different locations, we have returned feeling relaxed and rested as well as fully entertained by the wide variety that Canada has to offer. We really feel that your arrangements were better value than anything we could have done ourselves.

Great Ice Bear Tour

Great Ice Bear Tour

This remarkable polar bear watching holiday is for those who want to get really ‘up close and personal’ with the polar bears.

Spend 3 nights at Dymond Lake Lodge, a 15-minute flight from Churchill and watch the polar bears on foot with your experienced naturalist guide. You stand a good chance of watching mothers and cubs as well as the magical Northern Lights. The last night or your polar bear watching holiday will be in Churchill, where you can take an optional Buggy tour if available.

Churchill, a northern seaport, has long been known as the ‘Polar Bear Capital of the World’ as approximately 1,200 of these enormous bears congregate on the Hudson Bay come fall in wait for the freeze. You’ll meet several of these animals up-close and on their turf on your Great Ice Bear adventure.

The trips run between the middle of October and the middle of November – ask us for exact dates.

This itinerary can be added to a tailor-made holiday to suit you. If you want to add extra days at the start or end please talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

 

Lodge details

Lodge details

The location of Dymond Lake Lodge, nestled near the treeline of the Boreal Forest, gives it a true wilderness feel. Being close to both the coast and the forest means the variety of wildlife is unparalleled. Polar bears, moose, fox, pine marten, snowy owls, and even the elusive wolverine are known visitors of this unique destination.

The fenced-in compound keeps you safe as you move about and allows you to get within mere feet of the wildlife that stop by to check things out. It’s also great when you want to lie on the tundra, watching the northern lights dance across the sky!

In the evenings, gather in the main building for a presentation or enjoy some quiet time in the small common areas located in each guest cabin.

There are two cabins each with four guestrooms (double and quad rooms) and ensuite washrooms. There are cozy common areas with fireplace, a fenced compound surrounding the lodge buildings, viewing tower and decks, library, gift shop, full-service meals, 24h electricity via solar power, natural gas, and wood heat, radio/telephone & satellite wi-fi.

"We had an absolutely, amazing, awesome time!"
