Head to the award winning Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park. Your guided journey starts in the Wapusk Lowlands where you will see wolves, black bears, and grey wolves. Visit the Gateway to the Arctic exhibit where you will head inside a 10 ft acrylic tunnel and be surrounded by polar bears and seals. The large swimming area provides physical exercise and a place to frolic and dart between the ice chunks. With only a clear wall bisecting the two species habitats, the polar bears and seals see and smell each other, creating a dynamic and enriching environment. This interaction between the seals and polar bears will be part of what puts this exhibit at the forefront of Arctic zoo experiences.

You will then discover the Churchill Coast as the façade will make you feel as though you are actually transported to the town of Churchill. The landscape will include rocks, bear dens, and here is where you can encounter polar bears “nose to nose”.
