A one-day polar bear trip excursion to Churchill, Manitoba is back for another year in support of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy.

Frontiers North Adventures has partnered with APC for the trip to northern Manitoba, where Dr. Stephen Petersen, head of conservation and research at Assiniboine Park Zoo, will join visitors on November 16.

For each guest on the tour, Frontiers North Adventures will donate $300 to the Assiniboine Park Conservancy.

“For this exclusive departure, we partner with the Assiniboine Park Conservancy, strengthening the relationship between real-life Churchill and Journey to Churchill, which will be the touchstone Winnipeggers will visit again and again to relive this incredible trip,” said John Gunter, CEO of Frontiers North Adventures.

The round-trip cost is $1,499 and includes airfare from Churchill to Winnipeg, a full-day Tundra Buggy Adventure, lunch and a light dinner and all Churchill transfers. Guests will fly from Winnipeg to Churchill in the morning and return to Winnipeg that same evening. Space is limited to 30 guests.

Those interested can contact Frontiers North Adventures at (204) 949-2050 or e-mail info@frontiersnorth.com.
