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. 🙂
A huge thanks to all of our guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff for sharing your incredible photos with us! Enjoy!
Wolves are adjusting the pitch of their voices when howling together. Whether they are doing this to communicate a message, to create some kind of harmony, to enforce their bond or just because they can is not really clear. Anyway, hearing a wild wolf perform his song is one of the most touching experiences.
Watching wild wolves in their natural territory is a very emotional experience. These wolves have no history of being hunted and are therefore not afraid of humans. They are just minding their own business, or enjoying the morning sun, being still sleepy...
It’s that time of year again when you hear the crunch of the ice and the kings of the arctic begin their royal rumble. Happy international polar bear week!

A mother bear escorts her cubs across the tundra. When the ice forms in a week or two this will be the cubs' first season out hunting seals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I run my Polar Bear Expedition at peak season up in Churchill ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Normally this would be a very busy week for us. The last of the guests would be heading home, lodge shutdown procedures would be in full swing, and we'd be having our holiday staff party before our lodge team heads off to adventures in other parts of the world.
Those things aren't happening this year and it feels very strange. We miss our bears and we miss making friends with all our guests!
We’re soothing ourselves by looking at all the wonderful photos from seasons past. Enjoy this pic from last year's photo contest, taken by Michael P Seiler.
We hope you're all healthy and taking good care of yourselves. 😚
Vulpes lagopus, or hare- footed fox! Arctic foxes the only canid whose foot pads are covered in fur. Highly adapted for the extreme cold, they utilize a countercurrent heat exchanger in the blood of their legs. They can constantly keep their feet above the tissue freezing point. By increasing vasodilation and blood flow to a capillary rete in the pad surface, which is in direct contact with the snow rather than the entire foot. Selectively vasoconstricting blood vessels in the centre of the foot pad, conserving energy and minimizing heat loss. They do not shiver until the temperature drops below -70C. Smaller ears and short snout also help to reduce heat loss. #arcticfox #arcticfoxes #arcticfoxesofinstagram #fox #foxes #arctic #arcticwildlife #foxesofinstagram #foxeyes #canids #foxyeyes #foxy #foxart #sealriverheritagelodge #churchillwild #manitoba #hudsonbay #canada🇨🇦 #nikon #d4s #200400mm #nikonphotography #nikonwildlife #natgeo #travel #instatravel #natgeotravel #wanderlust #yourshotphotographer #photooftheday churchillwildsafaris upheremag canadageography natgeoyourshot...
When we stayed at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge in winter 2019, there was a pack of wolves roaming the area. They have probably never seen any humans before and were very curious. Occasionally, they came right to the lodge. And sometimes, we got up early to watch them getting up in the morning. We will never forget the almost two weeks we spent with „our“ wolves!
Arctic foxes are feeding on almost anything they can grab. They are hunting for lemmings or small birds, but are also eating berries and even seaweed when more nutritious food is scarce. We don‘t know, what this cute guy was tracking, but since we took this shot in the early morning hours, it must have been his breakfast...
A curious little guy coming to say hi while at churchillwildsafaris photo expedition. I just sat in the snow, not moving at all and he walked within 2m of me before I had to say something for him to keep a safe distance. Have you seen a pine marten in the wild before? #churchill #churchillwild #churchillwildsafaris #canoncanada #canon #wildlifephotography...
If you can come up with something cuter than a baby polar bear giving its mom a little boop on her snoot, we'll give you one hundred million dollars. (It's a trick, see, because there is nothing cuter.)
Past guest Anthony Lau is sharing a lovely series of photos titled 'The White Giant' on his account and this is one that he recently posted. Isn't it just gorgeous?? Anthony is a very gifted photographer who won a trip with us in 2017 after being named National Geographic's Travel Photographer of the Year!
The majestic snowy owls can sit on a treetop for hours without moving. But when they spot their favorite prey, lemmings, they are extremely quick. And, amazingly, they are completely silent when flying. The odds are not really in favor of the lemmings...
From November to April, temperatures at Manitoba‘s Hudson Bay Coast are somewhere between -20°C and -40°C. The local wildlife has adapted to these low temperatures extremely well. Therefore, while we are wearing at least four layers of winter gear - and hand and foot warmers - this cute little fox doesn‘t seem to mind the cold at all...
