We want to share your Churchill Wild photos with the world!

Churchill Wild guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff post a large number of photos to Instagram, both on their personal accounts and on the @churchillwildsafaris Instagram page. The album below includes a mixture of photos from all the aforementioned groups and from our own account. You can click on any of the photos in the album and they will open a new window to the photographer or author page.

We love to share photos from our polar bear lodges, especially from guests, so if you’ve taken some great shots with us and have posted them to Instagram, using the tags #churchillwild and #churchillwildsafaris could help you gain more exposure on Instagram through this album.

Also make sure to tag the individual lodge or lodges you were visiting, which include #sealriverheritagelodge, #nanukpolarbearlodge and #dymondlakeecolodge. We’ll be creating Instagram feeds for all three lodges, so if you’ve tagged them in your posts they should show up in their respective albums and hopefully help you gain a few more loyal fans!

We’ll swap out the photo at the top of this post on a regular basis and link it to a different guest, photographer, photo leader, guide or staffer. Have to spread the “Loves” and “Likes” around! Of course, we’re also hoping you’ll follow @churchillwildsafaris on Instagram too. ๐Ÿ™‚

A huge thanks to all of our guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff for sharing your incredible photos with us! Enjoy!

Saturday vibes...

Buddha Bear. Itโ€™s quite evident that this bear is not doing to bad. In fact, he has been eating rather well it seems. Great to see. Iโ€™m starting to feel like him though....happy weekend.

Who recognizes this guy? If you've been to Nanuk or Dymond in recent years, he likely would have been your lodge manager. He's also our Director of Operations. It's Nolan Booth! To really, REALLY simplify things, he makes sure that our fly-in lodges run as smoothly as possible. He also oversees construction projects and special expeditions like our Polar Bear Den Emergence Quest. He's a busy guy, which is why heโ€™s currently enjoying a well-deserved holiday in Hawaii! ๐Ÿ

It's the time of year when mamas and babies are coming out of their dens! One of our guides, Josh Robson, snapped this photo a couple of years ago during our Polar Bear Den Emergence Quest. How cute are these wee little cubs??

"When I decided to go and photograph polar bears, I knew I wanted to go someplace where I could be out walking with them instead of photographing them behind barriers.  I felt so safe being amongst the bears in their natural habitat.  The day this picture was taken was our last day at Seal River Heritage Lodge and we were experiencing 70km/hr winds which made the temperature feel like -40ยฐC.  Our plane was delayed so while we waited for the winds to die down we decided to gear up and take a few more photographs.  Just before I took this picture the bear, who we dubbed โ€œHollywood Bobโ€, had walked by us. I asked my guide, Tara, if I could step out into the path so I had a shot that would be directly behind him.  He was a very curious bear as we learned throughout the week and as he started getting closer to the other group, they all started calmly walking up the hill towards the lodge, while the guide watched carefully.  This trip was an experience I will never forget and feel so fortunate to have been a part of."

**Please note that lens compression makes it appear as if the guests are much closer to the bear than they actually are. We always practice safe distancing, socially and otherwise. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

#15 in our countdown to World Tourism Day, this photo was taken by Redeana Villeneuve at Seal River Heritage Lodge back in 2012.

Right now it feels like -30 degrees Celsius in Churchill. Out on the frozen Hudson Bay where the polar bears are hunting, it likely feels much colder. So how do they stay warm? A few inches of blubber, dense fur, and black skin that helps them absorb more of the sun's heat! ๐Ÿ“ท: @ianjohnsonwild

The most frequent litter size of a Polar Bear  is 2 cubs. During our stay at the Hudson Bay we were very lucky to see a mother with her 2 cute an curios cubs coming very close to the Lodge. Thanks churchillwildsafaris for this amazing experience.

Success!! Our incredibly hardworking team at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge have found a mom and cubs and yesterday guests had this encounter. @jaddavenport captured an amazing video and describes the scene: โ€œMom is resting while her two cubs climb all over her. Weโ€™re headed back out again way before dawn tomorrow to keep tracking  as she tries to reach the safety of the sea ice. Weโ€™re hoping to witness the magic when these 12-week-old cubs first touch the frozen ocean.โ€ ๐Ÿ’•

"How much walking will I do each day during my polar bear safari?" This is a question we often get asked and the answer is...probably a lot. Or, maybe just a little! It really depends on where the wildlife is in relation to the lodge. Sometimes the bears and other critters are a few hundred metres away, sometimes our wildlife guides will need to take you trekking up or down the coast to find the bears. That's the nature of a safari! It's a journey, an adventure, an expedition.

๐Ÿ‘€ Look closely! There's a furry white visitor at the edge of the deck! 

Strict rules and the electric fencing outside our lodges keep everyone safe when there's a bear nearby, and allow for life-changing encounters like this one.

Have you ever watched an Arctic Fox hunt? They move their ears side to side to listen for their prey below then a swift pounce or dig. I caught this little one in action without him knowing we were there.

Imagine waking up to see the sun peeking over the horizon, reflecting off the ice-ensconced rocks of the Hudson Bay tidal flats. A gentle mist hovers over the water, adding an otherworldly element to the scene. Now imagine a polar bear walks by and pauses long enough for you to capture this shot. Phew. Incredible photo by @rickbeldegreenphotography
