IMAGINE STARING INTO THE EBONY EYES OF A 1,300-POUND WILD POLAR BEAR

... AN EXPERIENCE FEW HUMANS WILL EVER HAVE. Traveling by RV, Train and even Plane, we visit Churchill, Manitoba where you will closely view and photograph awe inspiring polar bears from the comfort and safety of Fantasy’s privately chartered Tundra Buggy. Watch in anticipation as the regal, ‘King of the Arctic’ leisurely ambles across your path. The highlight is undoubtedly the amazing close-up encounters with the bears and their cubs as they migrate and socialize along the tundra at Hudson Bay waiting for the winter freeze.

Fantasy’s once-in-a-lifetime adventure will escort you by RV caravan from the International Peace Gardens of North Dakota, to Thompson, MB. Travel by train (Polar Bear Express) and plane (private charter) to and from Churchill, MB – the Polar Bear Capital of the World where you will experience this life enriching event. Upon our return to Thompson, MB you will enjoy the remainder of your adventure in your home-on-wheels as we travel south to the capital city of Winnipeg, MB.

Few will ever experience this awesome spectacle... but you will share bragging rights equal to those of notable travel writers and national TV videographers. This adventure is made for every bucket list… get ready to check-it-off yours!!

"Seeing the polar bears was something we’ve wanted to do for a long time. It was a fun and relaxing way to go. It was all and more than we expected."
