    Arctic Canada
    From cruise ships, along with Walrus, Narwhal, Bowhead Whale, Beluga and Musk Ox, all of which help make this A Top Ten Destination.

    Arctic Russia
    From cruise ships to Wrangel Island where Walrus and Musk Ox also occur.

    Baffin Island - Canada
    A chance in September-October.

    Manitoba - Canada
    The greatest concentration of Polar Bears in the world, during October, but only viewable from specially adapted vehicles known as Tundra Buggies or, for much more money, from a safe distance out of two remote lodges on the shores of Hudson Bay, accessible by air from Churchill.

    From cruise ships, along with Walrus.
