Thinking about a polar bear trip to Churchill in 2016
Has anyone been up to Churchill, Manitoba in fall/winter to see the polar bears congregations? I’ve been mulling this trip for years and now the state of the planet makes me wonder if postponing it would be a mistake.
I can muster up the airfare using airline points and cash-back rewards from various credit cards but it seems like the biggest expense is once you arrive. Rumors are that the a seat on a tundra buggy costs $500 per day.
Have any of you people of moderate means doing this trip before? How can it be made affordable while still seeing wildlife to make it worthwhile.
