For the Forum feature “Things to do before you die,” Ivan Raconteur takes us to the destination of Churchill, Manitoba. Every year in late September, polar bears begin to congregate near the remote seaport to wait for Hudson Bay to freeze over for the winter.

The large concentration of bears makes “the Polar bear capital of the world” the best place to view these amazing animals in the wild. Read more about the bears on the “Things to do before you die” forum, www.hjblogs.com/forums.
