Heading to warm climates for summer vacation isn’t always the most refreshing choice when it comes to getting away. The Great Canadian Travel Company has another great nature-related travel package for this summer called the Polar Bear Backpacker Tour (see also their Churchill Beluga Whale Tour) that involves a ten day adventure through the Canadian wilderness to view polar bears in their natural habitat.
Prices start at $1,450 and include train fares or air travel, hotels, and tundra vehicle tours, which is really inexpensive considering it’s a 10-day package. Not for those looking to relax (I think you’ll be literally ‘back-packing’ at some points) but definitely a great option for those looking for real-life escapism and adventure.
And (sadly) no one knows how long polar bears have left in the wild so it’s not a bad idea to see them while you still can.
