Seeing polar bears on Manitoba tundra - My bucket list was completed when I visited 100 countries and all seven continents, but I wanted to see polar bears in the tundra. One day my girlfriend phoned from Calgary, Alberta. She said Classic Canadian Tours offered an affordable one-day trip to see polar bears. They were going, so my husband and I decided to join them.
I stare out to the shore from aboard our 72 foot-long catamaran, scouring the water’s edge. Long grasses, a large overturned tree, a big rock and beyond, thick, pristine coastal rainforest. “How can I not see it?” I say to myself, then, I look again, this time further to the left.
