The Story

Every autumn, over 1,000 starving polar bears travel directly through the remote northern frontier town of Churchill, Manitoba to reach their hunting grounds on Hudson Bay. Polar Bear Town follows the migration of the world’s biggest land predator, the tourists who come to witness the spectacle, and the gritty, colourful, polar bear guides in charge of keeping everyone - people and animals – safe.

POLAR BEAR TOWN – Season 2

It’s summer in Polar Bear Town! Thousands of beluga whales are in the bay and tourists are flocking to see them. The polar bears are arriving earlier than usual. Guides have their hands full, with bears coming right into town, looking for food. If the bears reach their destination, it could be disastrous for tourists and locals alike.
