Awaken the soul with a truly unique trip to Canada

Awaken the soul with a truly unique trip to Canada

Ever dreamed of taking a walk on the wild side? Throwing off the nine-to-five grind and reconnecting with nature, stepping into pristine lands that recharge the body and mind and awaken the soul? If so, Canada may be the perfect destination for you.

From the otherworldly Emerald Lake in Yukon to the beautiful prairies of Manitoba, this scenic country has something to impress around every corner.

There’s so much to explore – and Qantas Holidays has captured the perfect slice of this magical land with their Tundra Buggy Lodges at Polar Bear Point & Vancouver tour.

Featuring a tour of Churchill, Manitoba, you’ll get a true sense of the city’s personality and historical importance. Stop by unique shops and family-run restaurants, and fall in love with the friendly locals and delicious local cuisine. Animal lovers, take note: Churchill is also one of the few human settlements where polar bears can be observed in the wild – so keep your eyes peeled!

Of course, there’s even more to see once you step outside the city. The tour includes a Tundra Buggy Adventure in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area – home of not only polar bears, but also arctic foxes, ptarmigan and other unique arctic wildlife. Just hop in the all-terrain vehicle and set out across the picture-perfect tundra, getting up close to the awe-inspiring wildlife and exploring the stunning surrounds at your own pace.

You can also try carting – a definite must for thrill-seekers – and go on a dog-sledding excursion with a local musher. You’ll be introduced to the team of friendly dogs, learn dog handling philosophy, and enjoy a mile-long ride through Churchill’s boreal forest. Whipping across the winter wonderland in this unique adventure, you’re sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.

After your enchanting days on the tundra, nights will be spent cosying up in the Tundra Buggy Lodge, savouring mouth-watering home-cooked meals, and watching presentations from organisations such as Polar Bears International. If weather permits, you may even be able to see the otherworldly Northern Lights – one of nature’s most majestic displays. The perfect way to unwind, you’ll find yourself wishing you could stay forever.

Tundra Buggy Lodges at Polar Bear Point & Vancouver: 8 nights from $12,979 per person twin share with Qantas Holidays.
