    Does anyone know the best place to see polar bears in Canada?

    you can see them in most parts of Canada such as Akpatok Island, Cambridge Bay, Churchill, Nain and Resolute Bay. Overall, i think Churchill and Resolute Bay are the best places to see polar bears in Canada. From May to August, you will be able to see them up-close, especially from Cape Churchill.

    visit Churchill in late October

    I have been to Churchill a couple of times and my tip is to do it the cheap way, rather than wasting thousands on organized polar bear trips. Just pay a local taxi guy in Churchill to drive you out of town to see a polar bear. I did this and got to a few laying down which was really cool. If I remember well it was in late October when temperatures are mild and aurora borealis can be seen.

    What great advice! Thank you for sharing. I love the tip about not paying for a big tour....sometimes it's fun to see things on your own. I do like traveling with a package because it is easier, but it also costs more. I didn't think about seeing the northern lights too. Awesome!
