What Clients Say
A magnificent time, lots of polar bears, but also arctic hare and arctic fox. The best restaurant in town, hope to come again.
Marrianne from Holland
Thanks for a great stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge! Really enjoyed our Cultural Tour and Tour on the Tundra with Brian. That was special seeing the polar bear behind the rocks eating as well as seeing the arctic fox and arctic hare. Understand now why everyone comes back to Churchill – it’s very magical! People at the lodge were very friendly and made our stay special, especially the gal who made sure I had lots of coffee! Food was too good so will diet when I get home. Thanks again!
Cheryl from Vancouver, BC
The lodge is truly amazing and well worth the stay for a perfect visit to Churchill. I worked there back in Polar Bear season (fall) 2008 and summer 2009 for Beluga Season. The bears are amazing and so many to see but I have to say the whales captured my heart even more. Churchill is a must visit for anyone.

We had the most amazing time. We enjoyed all the tours and saw about 20 polar bears, two snowy owls, and an arctic hare. Brian was a terrific guide. Our accommodations was cozy and comfortable and all the Aussie staff make us feel right at home.

It’s so remote you can’t drive to it.
Churchill, Manitoba, Canada is a remote community on the Hudson Bay. It’s so remote you can’t drive to it. There are about 50 miles of local roads, but the nearest land access is a 300-mile train ride on the Muskeg Express.

Walk Through the Lazy Bear Lodge
Hand hewed from logs pulled from the nearby boreal forest, the Lazy Bear Lodge is as unique and memorable as Churchill itself. Our friendly staff will make you feel right at home in the heart of Polar Bear country. Want to see more? Head to our YouTube channel.
