700 miles north of the US-Canada border lies Churchill, Canada. Lying along the migration path of polar bears and beluga whales, Churchill draws wildlife enthusiasts from all over the globe. It’s been coined the “Polar Bear Capital of the World” by many for its furry neighbors who occupy the town along with humans.

For the likes of Drew Hamilton and Alex de Vries, Owners of Discover Churchill, It's heaven on earth. It's the only place on earth where you can see Polar Bears, Northern Lights, and Beluga Whales in one place. Not only is this what makes Churchill unique, but it's brought Drew Hamilton here, one of the most respected guides in the world on Bear behavior and we have a lot to learn from him.

This is the story of Drew Hamilton. How Churchill became and remains his home and how he’s adapted to life in the arctic.
