News from the North eNewsletter - Your Authentic Arctic Experience
Hudson Strait Expedition Cruise
 

While the snow may be mostly gone in southern Manitoba the polar bears are still happily hunting on the frozen Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba... and that's a good thing as our friend Martha Stewart would say. We hope that in this edition of News from the North you will find inspiration for your next Authentic Arctic Experience.

SUMMER IN THE ARCTIC

Summer is a wonderful time to visit the Arctic. The snow that blankets the arctic in the winter is gone uncovering a world of things to be discovered. In summer the Tundra is alive with colorful plants and wildlife is abundant in the water as well as on the land. We offer several trips to destinations throughout the Arctic and Sub-Arctic during July and August. Snorkel or kayak with beluga whales in Churchill. Hike to the top of Mount Elu in search of prehistoric-looking musk oxen, or spend your days boating among sea ice in search of walrus and bowhead whales. Find out more about these and other arctic adventures on our website. Or call one of our Adventure Planners toll-free at 1-800-663-9832 or locally / internationally at 204-949-2050 to find the trip that is just right for you.

Polar Bear
BY POPULAR DEMAND

Our Adventurer trips to Churchill to see polar bears are such a hit that we've added an extra date. We expect this one will sell out fast. This two-night Adventurer Churchill Town and Tundra program takes place November 12 to 16th, 2011. Visit us online to learn more. This newly added departure is tour #66. Photo by: Daniel Cox

FRONTIERS NORTH AND POLAR BEARS INTERNATIONAL

Frontiers North Adventures and Polar Bears International (PBI) have enjoyed a long-standing partnership and after years of working together we figured it was time to make it official. Earlier this year John Gunter, General Manager, Frontiers North Adventures and Krista Wright, Vice-President and COO, PBI signed a memorandum of understanding making our partnership official! Over the years PBI species experts have joined Frontiers North's trips and shared their incredible knowledge and insights about polar bears with our guests. We’re proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of PBI. We've supported a number of their initiatives in Churchill like PBI's Leadership Camps and Tundra Connections that ignite a passion for polar bear conservation. As well we converted Tundra Buggy One into a mobile research station for PBI to use during polar bear season. Learn more about Buggy One. It has been a pleasure to share with our guests the incredible work of PBI. We look forward to many more years of our continued partnership.

FRONTIERS NORTH'S JOHN GUNTER TO SPEAK AT RTD5

Congratulations to our own John Gunter, General Manager of Frontiers North Adventures who has been invited to speak at the 5th International Conference on Responsible Tourism in Destinations (RTD5) being held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada June 27-29, 2011.

Responsible tourism is about creating more meaningful experiences for travellers by connecting them to the local culture and the natural beauty of host communities around the world. "Responsible tourism is about creating better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit," says Laura McGowan, director of the ICRT Canada, "and the RTD5 is an opportunity to discuss solutions to the major issues affecting the tourism industry and to share best practices – including managing the social, economic and environmental impacts of tourism on our communities, climate and ecosystems – so we can build healthy and vibrant communities and healthy and vibrant destinations." John will be on the panel discussing Polar Tourism. Visit www.rtd5.icrtcanada.ca for more information.
