Tundra Buggy® Autumn Day Tours

The Official Tundra Buggy

The official Tundra Buggy offers the exclusive chance to travel into the Churchill Wildlife Management Area (CWMA) for wildlife viewing and photography. Venturing out on a set of established trails to minimize the impact on the tundra, the Tundra Buggy will take you into areas with a high probability of wildlife sightings. These areas are the best locations in the Churchill area to experience wildlife in their natural environment. The official Tundra Buggy has the most access to the CWMA, holding 12 of the 18 available permits required to travel there.

A Tundra Buggy day tour is the best and safest way to view the majestic polar bear in its natural environment and is an ideal tour option if you are planning your own travel and accommodations in Churchill.

Tundra Buggy day tours include expert interpretation in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area about the wildlife and the magnificent ecosystems surrounding the subarctic environment of Churchill. You will have the opportunity to explore the open tundra while your driver discusses the effects of tides, currents and ice formation on the polar bears. Our interpretive Tundra Buggy drivers are experienced tour leaders and passionate adventurers who are are skilled at positioning the Tundra Buggy for optimal photography opportunities and wildlife viewing. Wildlife you spot may include polar bears, arctic hare, arctic and red fox, gyrfalcon, ptarmigan and much more.

Please note that Tundra Buggy day tours take place on a 40-passenger Tundra Buggy and during peak seasons have a tendency to sell to capacity. We highly recommend booking your Tundra Buggy Day Tour(s) as early as possible.

Frontiers North committed to going water bottle-free in 2016. Instead of using disposable plastic water bottles on our Tundra Buggies, we are encouraging our guests to bring their own reusable water bottle that can be filled with clean drinking water on board. 

By phasing out the use of manufactured plastic bottles on our Tundra Buggies, we are helping to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels used to produce plastic bottles and carbon dioxide emitted into our atmosphere when bottles are transported. On top of all that, we’re keeping plastic out of landfills!
