It is not encouraged to head off walking alone due to bear danger. Then it’s on to the ‘Polar Bear Jail’. One way the citizens of Churchill care for their polar bear friends is to put them in `jail’. When someone spots a Polar Bear too close to town, they call a special phone number, and the bear is humanely trapped and placed in the `Polar Bear Jail’ until it can be safely transported back to the wild. This is your last chance to spot these magnificent creatures up close and personal, but also to enjoy the Arctic wilderness area of Churchill.In the afternoon, you’ll transfer to the airport for your included flight back to Winnipeg.
