25 Years of Adventure on the Hudson Bay Coast
About this Item
In 1993, Mike and Jeanne Reimer set out to do what no one had ever done before. Their dream was to offer the ultimate Arctic safari experience: walking with polar bears. In their first year of operation they had only one paying guest.
Today, Churchill Wild owns and operates three luxury remote ecolodges on the Hudson Bay coast — two of which are members of the prestigious National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection. Churchill Wild has won numerous national and international tourism awards and 700 guests visit their polar bear lodges annually for the exhilarating experience of meeting a polar bear at ground level.
Packed with history reaching back over 80 years, beautiful photos, family and staff biographies, stories and anecdotes from guests, staff, media and photographers, Churchill Wild 25 Years of Adventure on the Hudson Bay Coast, tells the story of how Mike and Jeanne Reimer pioneered and developed the world’s first true polar bear walking safaris, raised a family and built a family business, beginning with the purchase of an abandoned whale research station north of Seal River on Hudson Bay.
The 25-year adventure that brought Churchill Wild to where it is today was full of ups and downs, dreaming and building, exploring, discovering and learning. This book is the story of that adventure, and of the people, wildlife and wild places that made it possible.
