Polar bear

Dangerous approach

One of the activities we have carried out has been walks outside the enclosure to observe and photograph the polar bears up close, stepping on the same terrain and without fences in between. To do this, the team of guides trained us on how to behave when we are in polar bear territory and even more so when we are close to one of them.


One afternoon we took a hike outside the camp, walking through the tundra and surrounded by bushes and other vegetation. At one point, we were able to see two adult polar bears, in the distance, that were resting together. The guides directed us so that the wind would carry our scent to the bears and thus alert them to our presence from a safe distance.
