          Hello, I'm hoping to combine a trip to Great Bear Lodge with a stop in Churchill (grizzlies and polar bears in the same trip would be amazing!!). I know October/November is the best time in Churchill - Would late September/early October be a good time for the grizzlies, or am I running the risk of them starting to hibernate? Thanks in advance for any advice :)

          We have booked to come to stay at The Great Bear Lodge from June 20th for our honeymoon - is there a chance of seeing bears at this point in the year?

          I think you will have a great chance. They feed on sedge at that time of year. You should see them from the boat trips. There is no salmon so they will not be fishing
