Polar Bears on the Tundra

I’ve been on the tundra for the past few days observing polar bears, and I wanted to share some of the really cool experiences with you.  Here are some behind-the-scenes videos for you.

Take a look at the “Lodge” where we stay.  It has sleeping quarters, a lounge, kitchen and then buggies pull up to it to load and unload supplies.  Pretty cool.

A bear visited the buggy yesterday morning.  Take a look!

And, a mom and her cub came pretty close.  Check it out.

It was windy, cold and snowing today.  And this polar bear is just sleeping through it.

This guy was close.

This bear came up to the back deck.  Polar bears are very curious and have a great sense of smell.

Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, November 6 for more webcasts from the tundra!

    What a wonderful environment. That is a lot of beds you all got their.
    Where is the restrooms though? Do you all see any whales or other animals in you alls
    location? How many blankets do you all need?
    I am guessing 2-4?
