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, in an effort to create additional exposure for all our valued guests, stakeholders and evangelists.

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

Polar bear sunrise at 8am, it’s November, guests are in Seal River lodge having breakfast all nice and toasty. I’m all alone in the yard protected by a 8ft fence. Bob the polar bear has just awoken from sleeping on a warm bed of dry kelp it’s a cool -17 Celsius outside. Magical is the only word to describe the experience as he walks calmly passed me, as the golden sunrise lights up the freezing Hudson Bay. To have an almost fully grown polar bear all to myself is something I’ll never forget! #polarbear #polarbears #polarbearinternational #polarbearsofinstagram #polarbearclub #polarbearlove #polarbearconservation #sealriverheritagelodge #churchhillwildsafaris #hudsonbay #canada #arctic #nikon #d3 #70200mm #nikonphotography #nikonwildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #bbcfrozenplanet #globalwarming #savepolarbears #bears #bearsofinstagram #travel #instatravel #wanderlust #yourphotophotographer #photooftheday churchillwildsafaris upheremag canadageography natgeoyourshot ...

“Ursus maritimus”, Latin for maritime bear. Polar bears have evolved to be strong swimmers to survive their constantly freezing and melting habitat. They swim across bays or polynyas without hesitation. They have been tracked swimming continuously for 100km, a single bear was recorded swimming a record 9 days for 426 miles. Hollow, water repellant fur, buoyant fat layers, large dish shaped paws and tapered body shape are some of the adaptions that have helped polar bears become masters of water and ice. #polarbear #polarbears #polarbearsinternational #polarbearswim #bear #bears #bearsofinstagram #sealriverheritagelodge #hudsonbay #manitoba #canada #nikon #d4s #500mm #nikonphotography #nikonwildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #natgeotravel #bertiegregory #travel #instatravel #nategeolodges #wanderlust #yourshotphotographer churchillwildsafaris upheremag canadageography ...

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 ...

I have a confession. I totally fell in love with photographing these guys. They are so curious and full of personality. I could have stayed outside with them forever. 💕I would blink and suddenly the day was over. It went by so fast. I absolutely loved listening to them communicate with one another and was amazed to see them chasing off the much bigger Red and Cross Fox. A special thank you to jodymae Even in 70km winds you stood with me to allow for amazing experiences and moments with not only polar bears but these incredible fox. You guys are the best! 💕

#SundayMorningReflections
As the sun rises on the Hudson Bay this male polar bear makes his way out onto the ice in the beautiful morning light.

For me this Sunday morning it is a time to reflect on an amazing journey with incredible people and new memories I will always hold with me. Listening to the foxes communicate with one another, the sea ice cracking and moving as it forms, the ravens call, a polar bear breathing in the Arctic air are just a few. I admit saying goodbye was hard and emotional for me this time. Although the trip was incredible it is the people and peacefulness of the Arctic I will miss the most. Thank you for all you have done throughout the years jodymae polarguide1 churchillwildsafaris Six trips (over ten years) filled with memories, experiences, and people I will never forget. 💕 .

Been off the grid the past week with churchillwildsafaris and travelmanitoba. I couldn’t get over how goofy these Polar Bears were. Moments later the guy on the left belly flopped off the rock. #churchillwild #sealriverheritagelodge #exploremb #sponsored matadornetwork #travelstoke ...

Say 'cheese'! 📷 It's World Photography Day! 📷

We've got the most amazing collection of polar bear photos thanks to all the talented photographers who've visited us over the years. This one, taken by @fast_dennis, is one of our many faves.

Each year we eagerly await our first polar bear sighting and being able to share that moment with all of you. This year, that milestone may not come as expected. Due to travel restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we don’t anticipate being able to host guests this summer.

We plan to open our lodges in October for our fall season and look forward to a regular summer season next year. We’re also taking bookings for 2022 for those of you who like to plan farther in advance!
We will relive highlights of our past summer seasons here until we can start sharing fresh content later this year!

Did you know that there are 19 populations of polar bears worldwide and 13 of those populations are wholly or partially located in Canada? Did you also know that if you join one of our dual lodge safaris you'll see bears from two different populations during your trip? 📷: @robertpostmaphotography

New meaning to the name 'Polar Explorer'.

Living in polar bear country gives us amazing insight into the personalities of these fascinating animals.
