Each season this remarkable, unique, hotel on wheels is positioned out on the tundra outside the town of Churchill in the area of highest polar bear density, for unrivalled polar bear watching.
Two separate sleeping cars – with a total of 32 single cabins (similar to a sleeper car on a train, but with either an upper or a lower berth) with communal facilities consisting of two showers and three toilets, plus separate lounge and dining areas, offer modest, but more than adequate, fully-heated comfort.
Inquisitive polar bears often approach the lodge, and you’ll have unparalleled opportunities to watch them through the large windows, or from elevated outside observation decks. This unique location, plus daily half-day outings in a dedicated Polar Rover vehicle, affords some exceptional sightings of bears, and some of the finest wildlife viewing experiences in the Churchill area.

Churchill is known as the ‘Polar Bear and Beluga Whale Capital of the World’ and lies right in the migratory path of polar bears, as they head north onto the ice floes to spend the winter hunting seals. Situated in Northern Manitoba, the coastline here is so remote that it has not changed in thousands of years.
