View Churchill polar bears with Google streetview

GoogleBear

Last fall, the Google streetview camera headed north to one of our favourite destinations: Churchill, Manitoba.

The streets, of course, are not the main attraction in Churchill, even for Google. After all, the town on the edge of Hudson Bay is known as the polar bear capital of the world. And the team arrived at the height of polar bear season, October-November.

Mounted on a tundra buggy—just like the ones our guests ride in during Adventure Canada’s Bears of Churchill trips—the streetview camera captured not only the barren wilderness of the tundra, but some of its celebrity residents as well.

Which means you, too can navigate your way around Churchill and the nearby tundra, searching for bears online. It’s the next best thing to planning your trip.
